Episode Description

The buzz: “When I got started in sales, I would create scripts based on what I heard from the best sales reps around me…but… every sales rep I tried to copy was doing something different…I couldn’t close a deal for the first 18 months…then something clicked…I learned how to read a conversation, understand tone and intonation…to build genuine relationships with my prospects. I stopped trying to automate what needs to be personal.” (S.M. Lowisz, Jan. 2020, forbes.com ) Reality check! Many sales leaders are getting lazy and resorting back to scripts. How bad it is? HubSpot reports that the computer software industry converts only 22% of opportunities to deals. Do the math. Is 78% of your sales team’s time a financial waste? The cure: non-stop coaching, optimized content, real insight, no scripts! We’ll ask Juliana Stancampiano at Oxygen, Julio Viskovich at NexLevel Sales, and Mike Orr at Grapevine6 for their insights on "Lazy Leaders Use Scripts: Strategies to Better Sales Enablement."
