Why the Existing Sales Training Model is Broken. And How to Fix It w/ Richard Ruff [Episode 240]

Joining me for the second time is Richard (Dick) Ruff, of Sales Momentum, a top sales trainer and leading expert on major accounts selling.

Dick has authored many books, including Mastering Major Accounts Selling and is co-author with Neil Rackam, on Managing Major Sales. In this episode, Dick and I do a deep dive into the field of sales training. Among the range of subjects we cover are: why sales training needs to change, the inevitable changes in the future of sales training, and why companies need to invest in both sales training and sales education.
