I talked with Mary Grothe, Sales BQ CEO & Founder to better understand how behavioral intelligence plays into the success of salespeople and the sales managers leading their teams. As a top performing individual sales contributor herself before starting her own business, Mary knows a thing or two about over achieving sales quota.
We start by talking about what BQ – Behavioral Intelligence is and how a keen understanding of BQ impacts sales success.
As beneficial as understanding BQ can be, there are circumstances where BQ has a negative effect on sellers. Learn what those things are when you listen to the interview.
Mary talks us through how to identify and remove barriers that lower a sales team’s BQ overall.
Next, we tackled the topic of motivation. Lots of opinions about what that means and whether or not sales leaders can motivate their team members. Mary shares her thoughts on how to motivate a sales team to perform at higher level.
Finally, we closed by talking about how once a once a culture of high BQ is created, the ways in which you maintain it.
Listen and enjoy the interview!
