Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #513

Greetings,

Thank you for listening to the episode. Your commitment to developing your selling skills, mindset and techniques is our motivation.

This podcast is dedicated to the overall success in the sales channel.  From the CEO to the front line salespeople, every role must be aligned, trained and committed, every day to achieve the desired outcome.  This is not done without a commitment to ongoing career development in learning market-relevant techniques, overcoming conceptual barriers, applying proactive and productive behaviors and projecting a positive attitude.

Learning happens! This is a small deviation from the common t-shirt. We are influenced by education, experiences and most importantly – debriefing an engagement with others. Combined, Bill and I have over 75 years of multiple encounters.  All have delivered an outcome and we have some advice for you.

Gather around as Bill and I discuss Advice Not Given and other important ideas on episode 513 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
