I had a call where I started to map out the idea of a virtual conference on effective sales communication.
This is inspired by a conversation I had with my daughters as well as what I’m barely starting to learn about how to have conversations without a hidden agenda.
Normally with bad sales calls, or looking for work, you enter a conversation and unconsciously make it clear what your goal is by asking questions with agendas behind them. Instead, a goal is to ask questions that don’t have an agenda / attachment to outcome and instead cause the recipient of the question to become introspective.
I want to understand this further. And I think putting together a panel of speakers to talk about this would be interesting. And hopefully not so abstract as to be impossible to understand.
So I had a call with the first person I thought of to discuss this. They think its an interesting idea so I’ll proceed and see where I get.
