Emotional Intelligence in Sales | Hosted by Conquer Local

Emotional intelligence in sales

Emotional intelligence in sales is a critical skill for new home sales professionals. Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself as well as in others. Emotionally intelligent salespeople are better able to read customers’ body language and verbal cues, anticipate customer needs and wants, and solve problems quickly.

In this episode, Jason Forrest talks with George Leith about the importance of emotional intelligence in sales and how low emotional intelligence prevents salespeople from achieving their success potential, impacting many areas of their sales performance.
