Why Care About Mental Health in Sales?

The science is simple. When sellers are stressed anxious, overwhelmed and/or experiencing burnout, it becomes impossible for them to sell effectively and perform consistently.

So how big is this problem within your team?

In the State Of Mental Health In Sales report we found:

  • More than 3 in 5 (63%) sellers are struggling with their mental health. 
  • 79% of salespeople describe their stress levels as stressed or highly stressed.
  • 65% of sellers are not sleeping well (insomnia, difficulty sleeping or restless sleep).
  • 66% of sellers are feeling always tired or more tired than usual.

This is resulting in millions of dollars in revenue being left on the table due to low mental performance. See video below.

What’s the ROI of investing into Mental Health?

Improving the Mental Health of salespeople will improve every skill and trait that makes a salesperson successful. Sales is a mental game and daily mental performance depends on the health of the mind.

Mental Health in Sales

Data from the World Health Organization shows every $1 invested into treatment for common mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, burnout, etc), there is a $4 return in improved health and productivity.

Some of our data is showing similar results.
