It was the month of August 2019 when the things in my professional life wasn’t going well due to the lack of many factors. And one of the major factors was I had stopped doing other things which were required for any individual to learn. Once you stop learning, you stop growing. And for a salesperson like me into the Education industry, I had to learn everything that can help me to be more impactful for anyone to buy from me.
I was forced to do something which later I thanked for it happened. And before I tell everything here only, I’d like to share the letter which was originally written on September 4, 2019.
Dear Jay Sir,
Usually, I never write any personal message/mail/letter to anyone until and unless I am deeply touched by their existence in my life. But when it does, I really can’t control my overflowing emotions. And this time, I got those which made me write this now.
It has been a year and a half that I have been in your team ever since you have come to Chembur branch, my only interaction with you or yours with me was mostly through our mediator, that is, Manpreet Madam. My growth has always been attached to Madam’s guidance and support, maybe because I had never felt the need for learning and growing anymore. But this time, when I was asked.. urghh.. TOLD to sit beside you because she felt the need of me getting better exposure on the things I have not worked upon, and she wanted me to over-achieve this month because that is what she wanted from me as her birthday gift, she is my Madam, and I had to do it for her, and there you come in the picture, Jay Sir.
To be honest, it was the first time I had sit beside you, and I was afraid a bit because our way of working has always been differ, I always sweet talk with people to get them in, and you on the other hand, famous for not giving any fuck about what they think. You just do and say what you think right is, no matter in whose favour that goes for.
There are many things which I have learnt from you:
- What you Talk on the Call is important than How you talk.
- Give them Logic to buy your POV.
- Transparency in the Words.
- Utilization of Resources.
- Professional Utilization of WhatsApp.
- Be a Straightforward Decision Maker.
- Managerial Activities.
- Not to get in the trap if candidate ask for the time. Be Specific on your Deadlines.
- Don’t get emotional. This is business, not relationships.
- Be a MF salesperson without showing that you are!
And there are many more I can think and write of but, I know, you don’t like reading much. (I still remember the book I had gifted you, is it still on chapter 2? Hahahah!) So this is it for now. I am proud to be the highest contributor, as an individual, in the branch and in many of the closing of my admissions has been done with your support and guidance.
I am heartily thankful for your kind support and the fire you have ignited in me to work in altogether a new way. You have not just received a position as a Deputy Branch Manager, but I can proudly see, what you are today is what you have actually earned. And that is precious for life. The leader in you knows how to train people, and how to make them go. I am grateful that I got a chance to sit beside you to genuinely know you as a person, as a leader, as the future of great heights.
I wish to help, contribute, and support Chembur Branch as long as I am here with all my hearts.
Thank you for your immense support!
This was the reaction of mine when I was asked to sit with Jay sir as Manpreet Madam is a Senior Manager who takes care of 3 branches pan India and I had always sit next to her.
It was surely shocking but a good experience too. I shared it today because I guess after 8 months of wait, I published it here because it’s Jay sir’s birthday. And I wanted him to know that his learnings are being taken care ever since.
After all, you should never forget those people who are the ones who teach you anything, or everything. I had to be grateful and this way I did.
Wish you a very happy birthday, Jay Sir.🙂
