The Ninja Selling Podcast

Nov 23, 2020

Today, on this 200th episode of the podcast, Matt and Garrett take a look at the topic of change. Throughout each person’s life, change is going to happen – as 2020 has clearly demonstrated - and listening for signs of these changes when reaching out to your people can provide you with a unique opportunity to strengthen your relationship with them.

During the episode, our hosts examine the importance of listening skills, asking questions, learning about how best to communicate with each of your clients, and, above all, making your conversations all about them. Garrett provides an enlightening example of the dichotomy of change, and together he and Matt explore the notion of the ‘carousel in our life’, talking about dreams, pain and pleasure levels, and, of course, listening for change. They conclude by reminding everyone that you can search their website for topics from previous episodes that you’re interested in – there’s a lot of quality information and advice to be found in these 200 episodes! If this past year has taught us anything, it’s that change is inevitable. What today’s episode teaches everyone is how you can deepen your connection with others by being there for them in these important times and beyond.
