    Rethinking the Way We Approach Sales Conversations with Lisa Proeber

    Rethinking the Way We Approach Sales Conversations with Lisa Proeber

    When you think of a sales person, do you envision a used car salesman with greasy hair and a gold chain? If so, this episode will completely change your perspective.
    In this episode, Lisa Proeber joined me to tackle the often negative reputation of sales. We discussed the common mindset that sales is a "dirty word", and reframed it as a way to help people make informed decisions. Our conversation emphasized the importance of changing perceptions around sales to focus on finding the right solutions for customers. It's all about helping, not selling!
    We delved into her accidental journey into sales 20 years ago and how she now views it as a way to help people make great decisions - not pushing people into something they don’t really want.
    Tune into our conversation to hear more about:
    What gives sales the reputation of being a “dirty word” and how we can change that in our own businessesHow we can use the Predictive Index tool to understand behavioral relationships and optimize talentExplaining the 80/20 rule in sales - and why follow up is keyTips for how to use your unique point of view in a sales conversationBreaking down the core selling competencies to empower you to sell with confidence
    Lisa's approach to sales is truly transformative, and I believe it can change the way we all think about selling. Tune in to learn more about how you can apply these principles to your own business journey.
