Podcast Episode # 294 - Mindset of a Sales Warrior by Jason Forrest
Jason Forrest is a sales trainer, consultant, and author of the new book the Mindset of the Sales Warrior. He is passionate about transforming sales organizations into high-performance sales teams, and their sales representatives into high-performance sales athletes. He believes that true sales training changes not only companies but also people’s lives as they learn how to reach their full potential.
Jason believes we’re all in sales and in the business of persuasion. For him, warriors are protectors, they stop people from harming themselves. Even when the buyers don’t recognize it, the warrior's job is to protect.
According to Jason, the flaw with the helper mindset is you can only help people who want to be helped. If you’re a protector, you know what’s best for them. Jason disagrees with the idea that people don’t want to be sold, but do want to buy. He believes people like to be sold because they want to feel wanted. Too many sellers are soft and fluffy in Jason’s words. Yes, people don’t want to be conned and lied to. But Jason believes buyers want to be lead. That’s the warrior mindset.
