I’m still striving to create better experiences for our sellers. We’re trying to create more tech and less stack in our environment for our sellers. We’re trying to make it easy for them to adopt new technologies, new functionalities, and new data flows so that they can be smarter. — Terry Coutsolioutsos

From This Episode
Host Mark Magnacca: “What is the most important thing sales leaders need to start doing to help sellers adapt to a hybrid virtual world?”
Terry Coutsolioutsos: “They need to equip their sellers to handle any environment.
“I just had this really interesting conversation with my head of sales education, and we talked about creating virtual selling skills versus selling skills. And we decided that it’s just selling skills. And it needs to encompass virtual, it needs to encompass live, it needs to encompass mobile, whatever it might be.
“It’s really a challenging time in terms of picking up these skills, but you’ve got to do it all. And so we need to equip ourselves to handle any environment at any time.”
