“Mabel, Mabel, sweet and able, get your elbows off the table!”
Whether the lesson stuck with you or not, the rhyme’s message is clear: Etiquette and body language are important. And this is especially true in sales.
Any time you’re in a face-to-face meeting with a prospect, your body language is crucial. What you say is just as important as how you say it -- and how you look when you say it. Don’t let these mistakes derail a sales meeting or distract from your message.
