Why People Have Conflicts Juggling Priorities: When Core Values Clash with Personal Life

Why identifying organisational values is one of the answers to reducing salespeople and sales directors' stress and leading to improved performance?

So many salespeople get it wrong when either trying to manage their stress or sales directors are trying to help reduce stress in their salespeople.

We all have, those guiding principles that shape our lives, both inside and outside of work. But what happens when those values seem to contradict each other?

This is a common situation in many businesses, and the cost is huge both emotionally and financially. When senior management and salespeople know their organisational values and when there is a conflict, both parties know why it is happening and what to do about it.

It's one of the keys to becoming a Learning Organisation.

Here is what Harrington has to say.

We're human beings first, professionals second. Balancing work and personal values is an ongoing challenge. But by practicing reflection, communication, flexibility, self-care, and a willingness to learn, we can navigate these conflicts with calmness and maintain a healthy, fulfilling life on both sides of the desk.
