How to Get the “Pro” Out of Your Professional Development

Nikki Rausch on the Rich Life Revolution Podcast

Professional Development
Nikki has been a guest on many podcasts around the world and it's an honor for her to be able to share her sales knowledge with others. She loves talking about sales strategy & business practices to build rapport and take the sleaze out of sales. Today she joins, Michelle Cooper on the Rich Life Revolution Podcast and they discuss how to get the pro out of your professional development.

Notes from Nikki:

“In my conversation with Michelle Cooper, I shared some valuable insights on how to make the most of any professional development program or workshop. My experience as a business coach and author of “The Selling Staircase” has led me to a fresh perspective: even if a program doesn't fully meet your expectations, there's always something to gain if you approach it with an open mind.

Tip #1:

Find Value in Every Experience When you find yourself in a professional development program that might not be living up to its promises, don't give up. Instead, shift your focus from the course content to the people around you. You'll likely discover amazing business connections and even potential future clients among your fellow participants.

Tip #2:

Embrace Being a Small Fish While it's gratifying to be the expert in a group, true growth comes from being willing to be the least knowledgeable person in the room. I once received advice to “always want to be the dumb, poor one in the room,” and I've taken that wisdom to heart. You won't expand your horizons if you only surround yourself with those you can outshine.

Tip #3:

Invest in Opportunities Assuming you've done your research, don't hesitate to spend your hard-earned money on a program or membership. This can be your quickest path to networking with influential individuals who can open significant doors for you. I can personally attest to the benefits of this approach, as it led me to establish a relationship with none other than Richard Branson.

Tip #4:

Put in the Effort There's no shortcut to success. Paying for a program won't automatically transfer all the knowledge to you. To reap the rewards, you must put in the work. Complete the assignments, actively participate in meetings, and engage in networking opportunities. Be just as willing to contribute as you are to receive valuable knowledge from others.

In conclusion, as you plan your next course or program, I encourage you to consider which of these tips resonates with you the most and how you can implement them to maximize your next business opportunity. If you found my insights compelling, I invite you to listen to my full interview on the podcast, where we delve into these concepts and explore how to enrich both your personal and professional life. ”
