This course helps you become better at cold calling and it was the one out of these 11 that I most looked forward to. Like other ones, it emphasizes the importance of goals and how you can fight against Parkinson's law. Also, preparation is key ingredient that makes your success more tangible. I liked that the instructor recommended the consultative (soft) approach to selling when trying to set an appointment. Biggest takeaway is that you should never allow yourself to be surprised when cold calling and this comes down to practice and preparation.
Thank you. Very practical! great course
Great method, Excellent course !
