    Having a home full of books and a mother who was a teacher led me to love reading from an early age. When I was in kindergarten, my hand always shot up when my teachers asked for volunteers to read out loud.

It requires painful introspection, grueling self-reflection, and salesmanship to convince others of your discovery. But most of all, it requires a leader to step forward. Between 2003-2008, General Stanley McChrystal served as the commander the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), an organization encompassing the US military’s most elite units.

I’ve also worked with CEOs who have no sales process or quotas and let everyone do their own thing, thinking they would be motivated by the freedom. This, too, is painful. These CEOs are less painful but often difficult to influence because they assume salespeople would perform like they would. Not always an accurate assumption. There is much talk these days about the social salesperson. First, let’s be clear. Sales has always been social.
