In my interview with Deb Calvert, we talked about the idea that salespeople need to stop selling and start leading. An extremely interesting concept that is backed by some very solid research. Deb and her research partners did some extensive work to understand what buyers want from the salespeople they choose to work with. We are talking about specific behaviors that lead buyers in the direction of doing business with you or not.
We talked about:
The buyer research and how buyers view seller behaviors?
Several of the behaviors that buyers said were important to them.
The one change that sellers could make right now that would lead to greater sales success.
Enjoy the interview!
