Effective Sales Prospecting starts with the search for your targeted potential customers, forming relationships with them, and motivating them to take action.
To begin the relationship and be in a position to motivate them to take action, your prospect needs to feel connected with the sales person. For your prospect to feel connected, they would have to reveal something about themselves or their company with the sales person.
For your prospect to feel comfortable enough to reveal something about themselves or their organization. The sales person must be prepared to initiate the exchange by revealing something about themselves first.
For your sales person to know how to reveal something, they must understand the foundation for how to construct and share well thought out ideas. To learn how to share these ideas, your sales person must be able to "hear" others ideas, (learn to purposefully listen with the intent to truly understand).
Before your sales person learns how to share and receive ideas, a sales person would need to understand how your prospects buying decisions are activated.
