Here’s a rundown of some popular episodes that may help you adjust your approach:

What’s working well in their organization, and what isn’t? Great discovery conversations only happen when salespeople aren’t afraid to be uncomfortable. Being elite often comes down to being the person who can ask great open-ended questions with patience, empathy and confidence. Force Management Facilitator Antonella O’Day shares how to dig deep in discovery conversations in a way that creates a healthy tension in the conversation. Tune in:

Focus on improving your ability to articulate this message. Ensure you can use what you learned to lay the groundwork for your next steps and conversations. In this episode,  John Kaplan details how.
