Hard-Won Sales Wisdom

One of the most valuable learning opportunities for salespeople is getting to sit down with an experienced sales veteran to hear their sales "war stories"—the sales calls that went great, and the ones that were a dismal failure. Either way, they know they'll learn something they're not likely to learn any other way. This course is part of a "Fireside Chat" series of courses where bestselling author Paul Smith brings you hard-won lessons from experienced professionals. Each episode contains a new lesson from a different expert. In this case, sales wisdom from his interviews with veteran sales professionals from dozens of companies around the world.
