Winning at Selling Podcast : Episode #580


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.

Are great salespeople similar to great athletes? They certainly have a desire to win and for many, sales can be more lucrative than sports. But it’s not easy to be the best and it’s not something for the weak of heart or the lazy of character.

So, lace up your cleats as Scott and I examine Sales Lessons from Great Competitors and other fascinating info on episode 580 of the Winning at Selling podcast.
