Sales is emotional — for both buyers and sellers. On the buying side, choosing to invest a considerable sum of money into a product or service requires belief in the offering and also the salesperson vouching for it. On the selling side, reps must build genuine rapport with prospects and care about buyers’ goals and pain points like their own.
