    Competence Over Experience, with Christine Rogers

    Competence Over Experience, with Christine Rogers

    Christine Rogers is the President & COO at Aspireship. In today's episode, we discuss the greater role of competency over experience in becoming successful as a SaaS seller. Although there is a traditional preference for salespeople who have experience selling SaaS, Aspireship provides a course that highlights individuals who may not have the experience in SaaS but have proven, through actual work, that they in fact excel at sales. We unravel how their course provides this service free of charge and their 92% rate of success in placing reps in good standing.

    HIGHLIGHTS


    Aspireship: Finding competence and character over experience

    Training on objection handling, Salesforce, and customer experience

    Roleplaying tests detail-orientedness and its application

    Teachers and the hospitality industry are good at sales

    Helping talent acquisition find the best talent


    QUOTES

    Christine: "I believe that most sales leaders will tell you that some of their best hires they've ever made didn't look great on paper but they've done extremely well. And they're trying to replicate that over and over again. Like, how do I find more of those people that are the diamonds in the rough that nobody would give a chance?” 

    Christine: "The most interesting thing is watch them do the work and then look at the resume and you'll be surprised that they haven't had that experience, and watch them do it. They actually can. So we're showing and showcasing people in a totally different way and it's all through the product."

    Christine: "We look at the 90-day mark. Are they in good standing? And currently, we're at 92% of our grads that we placed are in good standing in the companies that they're in at the 90-day mark. So they're in good standing, so I think that's a really important metric."

    Christine: "If you've been in our space for any length of time, you know that there's some antiquated thinking that, in order to get great people that want to stay for any length of time, you're going to have to do something different."

    A Conversation with Jon Levy

    A Conversation with Jon Levy

    Jon Levy is the Founder and Host of Influencers, a Behavioral scientist, consultant, and author of a very interesting new book titled, "You're Invited, The Art and Science of Cultivating Influence." On today's episode we're talking influence, connection and trust.
    We start with Influence. What is it? What does it mean to have influence? And the role of relationships and community in creating influence. And Jon shares the details behind his Influence Equation.
    Then Jon and I dive into the importance of connection and connectedness. isolation and loneliness are an increasing fact of life. It presents itself in the stress, burnout and mental health issues we see in sales. As Jon points out chances are high that the people you want to connect with are in need of connection too and may not even realize it. We dig into why sellers need to develop relationships in which everyone is better off, rather than trying to extract as much value as possible from it.
    Finally, we get into the process of building trust. And why building trust begins with finding a challenge big enough to require people to work together.
    This conversation was originally recorded in 2021.

    A Conversation with Mike Bosworth

    A Conversation with Mike Bosworth

    Mike Bosworth is one of the true legends in the sales profession. He is the author and creator of both "Solution Selling" and "Customer Centric Selling." I enjoy it every time Mike comes on the show. Because I learn something new. And today's no exception. In today's episode we talk about a growing problem in sales: discovery resistance. Discovery resistance is resistance to being questioned – pushback – verbalized or not, from a buyer you would like to get to know. Discovery Resistance originates with the 99% of buyers who have come away from previous encounters with 'salespeople' feeling coerced, pressured, manipulated, or flat-out PUSHED into doing something that they did not want to do. This is critical for individual contributors to understand as well as sales leaders.
    This conversation was originally recorded in 2021.

Andy’s Style in Top Notch

There’s a few things that make this show different from the others. 1, Andy prepares. He knows his guests and knows what to dig into. 2, he asks the tough questions — no softballs, the kind of questions I’m thinking about and want to challenge a guest on to really get into the good stuff of a conversation.
