Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #483


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.

When I messed up my Dad used to tell me that I had just “shot myself in the foot”. But then he was a military man. Some of his more colorful aphorisms might slip out later in the show so stay tuned. In any event we have all been our own worst enemy on a sales call and done or said something that caused us to lose the deal.

To minimize this problem, listen for behaviors you should avoid as Scott and I discuss the Top 5 Ways to Screw Up Your Sale and other great ideas on episode 483 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
