In this podcast, she and Jeremey discuss the importance of a learning attitude, the key characteristics of emotional intelligence, and how cultivating the right soft skills helps salespeople execute hard selling behaviors.

I contend that we need to pre-brief as many calls as debrief. Debriefing is very important: ‘Hey, what did you say, you paused here, you stepped on the prospect, you didn’t let them finish the sentence.’ Pre-briefing is, ‘what are you going to say when they say this?’ And you actually see if the seller can execute the skill before they get on a call.
