The reasons why people love sales (clear success metrics/goals, independence, ability to make commission, direct impact on the business) are the very same reasons why it can quickly become very stressful and lead to anxiety and even depression. Do you feel like you manage your own mental health well? How do you do it? How does your org support you? What more do you think can be done industry-wide to bring greater attention to this?
In a recent survey, 2 in 5 Salespeople reported that they struggled with mental health, DOUBLE the rate of the general workforce.
Is Mental Health discussed enough in your sales org?
