Gina gets to have one of her long-term “sales crushes” on the show today. One of the top sales influencers of the 21st century, and one of the top 30 sales gurus in the world! Colleen Stanley, President, Founder, and Chief Selling Officer at SalesLeadership Inc., as well as a leader in emotional intelligence, an author, a keynote speaker, and trainer.
Gina and Colleen waste no time diving deep into emotional intelligence, its practical applications, and how soft skills help support the right selling behaviors. They discuss the ‘knowing and doing gap’, how to discern if a sales opportunity is a bad fit, the importance of self-awareness and delayed gratification in scaling a business, repetition to master skills, carving out quiet time to reflect, the need to approach every situation with a fresh perspective, and continuously improve through reading, debriefing, and self-evaluation.
