I believe that two of the most transferable skills are management and sales. Still, professionals turn their noses to both. Management has been superseded by leadership. However, it’s so much easier to explain management experience than leadership style or outcomes. As for sales, so many corporate professionals opt out of sales jobs, not understanding that, as business growth professionals, sales executives are a much needed and indispensable group than their counterparts in business support functions.
Peta Sitcheff started her career selling Viagra, moved on to medical devices. Working in ICUs, burns units, operating rooms helped her become an expert in working in extraordinarily stressful environments and building important partnerships. She is now a consultant helping sales professionals and businesses transform their sales proposition to enable successful commercial growth and trusting client relationships.
Peta wrote a book to share her experience with burnout. Her book is a fantastic read, which I recommend if you enjoy inspirational personal stories and like to learn: at the end of each chapter, there's a list of great books and articles you can read to learn more about the topic she just tackled.
