Companies give most businesspeople the time they need to learn their jobs. However, sales professionals rarely get that opportunity and often must learn everything on the fly. Companies often expect salespeople to produce right away, but that isn’t always possible or prudent. Veteran sales expert Jill Konrath explains how to become a fast-track learner in sales and how to produce deals under pressure. She is a knowledgeable, entertaining writer, so busy salespeople will savor her brief, snappy chapters and appreciate her practical advice for success. getAbstract recommends Konrath’s manual to salespeople, their managers and all entrepreneurs.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why every sales professional must be an “agile learner,”
- How to gain new knowledge and skills quickly, and
- How to use a 90-day sales learning plan.

Comment on this summary
2 years agoGreat tips, especially for new hires. Key take away was for me that multitasking is not a good way to get many things done at once, because it causes degradation of the brain’s processing power.
