That doesn’t really come as a surprise considering the moment we walk into a new place our first question is more than likely going to be, “What’s the password for your WiFi?”.

You may be asking yourself, “How can a culture of learning can help your sales organization?”  “Research has found that people tend to have a better quality of work under pressure when they are trying to learn, then when they are trying to meet specific performance goals”, According to Jim Keenan. “While performance goals should remain a key part of the sales environment.  Sales leaders should focus on creating a culture of learning.”  He wrote.
