Start from a place of empathy to develop a deeper understanding of your customer base
Earn trust by listening without distraction, making more meaningful small talk, and practicing assertive empathy
Craft compelling stories that activate passion in your customers— and tell those stories in a compelling way
Explore the key questions that lead to breakthrough conversations with customers
