Clip from Episode 40: Top Cintas Sales Executive – Paul DiVincenzo – Relationships, Focus, Adaptability and Action:
What we’re really doing in sales Scott to me is engaging with people. I don’t really know where I pick that up. But what I really try to do for example I always try to engage with people and that sounds very people might be thinking. Of course you do. But I think a lot of times if you’re an experienced seller especially but even new people you can become very apathetic where you’re really just intently focused on what you’re trying to sell and what you’re trying to accomplish whether that be your number or your goal or your KPI or whatever. And I try I really try not to ever allow that in my mind because I think that it clouds the way I operate. So for me selling I don’t get very many moments to engage with the customer initially. So my first meeting with them has to be memorable and it’s also got to be real.
