Join these two authors, John Asher and Vincent Burruano, talking about what took them so long to write their books. That leads to the motivation behind Vincent's latest book, "A Daily Dose of Sales Wisdom". This takes us to an important distinction regarding being nice can be unkind. What Vince means is that honesty is necessary to build trust, and sometimes that means telling a hard truth or two to your sales team. They both make the distinction between being honest and being mean or brutal. These are great communication skills and will help you help your team improve without being on the defensive. Tune in for this episode of Asher Sales Sense, "Being Honest Isn't the Same as Being Mean or Brutal, But It's Necessary."
