Ollie Sharpe, SalesLoft’s VP of Revenue for EMEA, recently spoke at our Virtual Summit for Sales Leaders on “Overcoming Fear, Anxiety, and Depression in Sales.” As he puts it, “mental health can feel like a difficult topic to discuss in the fast-paced and quota-driven world that many of us live in,” so he demonstrates how and why to start that conversation.
Ollie mentioned multiple books that he’s found helpful or insightful on this topic, and we’ve included the full list below so you can find inspiration in these as well.
