Three rules for better meetings:
1. No large meetings.
2. If you're not adding value to a meeting, leave.
3. No frequent meetings.
As sales teams gear up for their Sales Kick Off (SKO) events, it's crucial to approach these gatherings with the right mindset and energy. One effective way to enhance focus and performance is through the practice of breathwork. In this blog, we'll delve into a specific technique known as Chit Shakti Prakriya (Energy Awakening Breath), explaining how it can be a game-changer for your sales team.
While there are no real studies on this specific Breathwork technique, we can extrapolate its meaning from basic understanding of the effect of breathing rate on our nervous system. When we increase the volume and the rate of our inhales, we are activating the sympathetic branch of our autonomic nervous system. This leads to an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, core body temperature, cortisol release; overall we alertness and desire to move.
Use this technique when you’re lacking energy entirely. This is apt for a mid-day reset, or before the next meeting on your schedule.
Finding a seated position with a straight spine, bring the hands and arms 90 degrees like you’re a cheerleader with pom poms. On a powerful inhale through the nose, raise the arms up and extend the fingers outwards all the way. On the explosive exhale through the mouth, bring hands and arms back down to 90 degrees.
We typically do 3 rounds of 15, 21, and 30 breaths, making sure to take a 20 second pause after each round to feel the effects.
