Engineers Learn to Sell Differently

The 3-part framework of the challenger sale model (2011) is to teach, tailor, and take control of the buying journey. The idea of teaching during the buying experience is not new.

Things we don't talk about
Things We Don’t Talk About

It is 5:46 am, and you make the daily walk to the restroom. As you shake the morning cobwebs from your mind, you think about the conversation you are avoiding with your sales manager. You feel the guilt of knowing this discussion needs to happen ahead of today’s sales meeting and the truth that you are avoiding a crucial conversation.

I have always believed and often teach the virtues of hiring the best person for the job. My naivety has also made me think that most “right-minded” managers agree with this simple premise.
