Since buyers like to buy and don’t like to be on the receiving end of a sales pitch, this may indicate the need for a 12-step program, but not for customers. Rather, it would be for all salespeople who, intentionally or not, behave in ways that prompt buyers to recoil as though they were dealing with an addict on a binge.

1. We admitted we were powerless over… Continue

We’re cleaning out our garages, homes and probably Dropboxes; so why not the recruiting process? Recruiters can add all the great new recruiting tech to their processes, but maintenance and upkeep are just a fact of life. Don’t let your recruiting process get cluttered with old practices, redundancies and inefficient ways of getting to your goals.

Next time someone someone tells you he already knows all about what you’re saying, say the following:
That’s great! How much are you doing that?
Chances are there is a gap between what someone says they know and what they’re doing with that knowledge.
The divide between knowing and doing is plaguing companies across the globe. The dangerous assumption that just because someone knows something automatically means she’s doing it keeps her from… Continue

Slick lines, canned responses, and a voice that sounds just like the typical salesperson—a common combination for too many salespeople today. Even those who avoid this Wolf of Wall Street persona still tend to talk too much, listen too little, and dominate versus facilitate conversations with buyers. Is it any wonder that almost everyone, including salespeople themselves, dislike being on the receiving end of a sales pitch?
The definition of a schmuck is:
