Mike Esterday • Derek Roberts

How Your Mindset, Skillset, and Human Connections Unlock Sales Performance.

Sales success begins with you

You can’t sell without listening to your customers—and yourself. In Listen to Sell, sales experts and coaches Mike Esterday and Derek Roberts draw on their decades of industry experience to reveal the conversations, mindset, and skillset needed to amplify your sales confidence and bring purpose back to your customer relationships.

Whether you’re an experienced sales executive who’s hit a plateau, a sales manager looking to motivate your team, or a newer sales rep who just isn’t sure they’re cut out for sales, this book is your breakthrough.

You’ll then learn how to hone your skillset—the daily tools and tactics that make or break sales—by creating a personal sales plan. Finally, you’ll master human connection through sales conversations with your customers, and coaching conversations with yourself and your manager.
