    This week's guest is Tim Clarke of UNCrushed, back as a Greatest Hit for the Sales Leadership Podcast. Tim brings a special story today on an important topic.

Tim says that we are so focused on outcomes that we often lose track of people. Tim's non-profit group, UNCrushed, helps salespeople avoid the negative impact of the "crush it" culture. He talks about how to minimize the soul-crushing rejection, the uncertainty, and the fear in order to be successful and thrive. Tim sums it up with the belief that strength comes from vulnerability.
