First – Do No Harm

Sales ‌• May 12, 2010

Saw this today in a post that Jill Konrath made…  It is SO TRUE!!

“…The Hippocratic Oath of a physician – “First do no harm” – is at the heart of the thinking of the most successful sales professionals. They believe that their success will come from making their customers successful.

They approach their customer thinking, “How can I help them succeed?” rather than “What can I sell them?” They think like a business person, rather than a salesperson. They see it as a process done “with” the customer rather than “to” the customer…”  – Jeff Thull,
