The Win Rate Podcast with Andy Paul

What's Broken In Sales and Can It Be Fixed?

Show Notes

Today Andy brings you yet another packed roundtable of sales pros, Adam Zais, CRO of Sales & Business Development at AiLert,  Mark Raffan, CEO at Negotiations Ninja, and Eric Shaver, Managing Partner at Kensei Partners. They begin by discussing the gap in traditional sales training, emphasizing the importance of engaging executives as peers and understanding the business side of sales, rather than just the sales process itself. The conversation goes further into the distinction between business and sales dialects, the significance of approaching sales with a business mindset, and the challenges in current sales practices, including the reliance on process over genuine understanding of business impacts. They also talk about the need for a shift in sales training and strategies to better prepare salespeople for modern challenges, touching upon the importance of understanding corporate finance, business case modeling, and being prescriptive in sales pitches to drive value and achieve better outcomes.Host Andy Paul is the expert on modern B2B selling and author of three best-selling, award-winning sales books, including his latest Sell Without Selling Out.
