I hope you are intrigued with the title of this blog post. You might be wondering what does Chinese food have to do with a pharmaceutical sales career. Well, the healthcare field happens to be one of the most diverse ones out there with professionals from all types of backgrounds and cultures. Therefore, diversity skills are important for achieving success in this or any other of today’s working environments.
I feature diversity topics in every 3-4 episodes of Clint Cora Motivational WebTV, which is my online motivational video show about achieving success. So we are now at episode number eight and you are indeed going to be seeing some yummy Chinese food – dim sum to be exact. If you are not familiar with Chinese dim sum, then this will be an educational food video for you as well as I take you inside one of my local Chinese restaurants here in Mississauga.
You will see that I use Chinese dim sum as one of my diversity tools to help me build both business and personal relationships with people, especially those who are different from me and not very familiar with dim sum. Ethnic food in fact is a great diversity tool to use. Building these relationships have helped me greatly over the years to achieve success in different fields including my pharmaceutical sales career. I took both customers such as doctors as well as other pharmaceutical sales reps out to dim sum. I even organized an entire continuing medical education event where it included a big dinner at a Chinese restaurant.
This is why this episode can be considered a motivational video because it shows how you can use a very enjoyable experience like dining and use it as a tool for success. Don’t forget that to achieve success these days often requires the partnership of others and what better way to foster these relationships than over food. The Chinese food twist in all this just gives it a diversity spin.
I hope you like this latest Motivational WebTV episode and of course as always, I look forward to your comments below. The lessons there can certainly be of benefit to your pharmaceutical sales career as well as other areas of your life. Other episodes of my motivational video series are archived for your convenience.
