  2. 2. The 11 Corporate Lessons from Movie ‘Rocket Singh’ On Money & Motivation Lesson # 1 Money doesn’t motivate everybody equally. • You cannot always convince people with money only. • You need to persuade, converse, negotiate and engage. • Money is one of the several variables of motivation. Someone needs just sweet words and someone needs a little persuasion. • Tailor the approach of motivation. Use money where it is required only.
  3. 3. The 11 Corporate Lessons from Movie ‘Rocket Singh’ On Right Aptitude Lesson # 2 To thrive in sales, you need right aptitude (not just marks on your degrees).

To be a great salesperson, you need to have right aptitude……an aptitude of empathy, an aptitude to see beyond the obvious.
  4. 4. The 11 Corporate Lessons from Movie ‘Rocket Singh’ On Ice- breaking Lesson # 3 “Disturbing” others is pre-requisite to be salesperson. Asking (or disturbing people) is pre-requisite to become a great salesperson. If you are hesitant to break the ice, start conversations and ask for help and guidance and engage people in discussions, you then need to cultivate people skills. Great salespeople come one step forward, after saying hello, they confidently say, “Can you please help me”?
  5. 5. The 11 Corporate Lessons from Movie ‘Rocket Singh’ On Honesty & Integrity Lesson # 4 What is good for the goose cannot be bad for the gander! Don’t expect honesty from salespeople in the organization if you encourage them to become kick-backers and bribers with the clients. If organization encourages its sales and marketing teams to bribe the clients’ organization to take orders, it is, in fact, plowing the seeds of dishonesty in the organizational culture. Organization has no right to expect internal integrity and honesty if it is promoting malpractices in the clients’ organizations.
