Getting to your first sales.

Many specialized employees accustomed to approaching customer relations with a “product” mindset are discovering that, today, they need to be more proactive, identifying new opportunities, or even attracting new customers to their organization. In-house counsel, attorneys, engineers, technicians, etc. Each has a commercial role and can (or should?) do their part to contribute to the business.

Although it’s important, doing this requires employees to step out of their comfort zone and revisit established work habits. Furthermore, this extra responsibility can lead to frustration and can cause stress and tensions. This is very common in times of change
