    This is one of our greatest hits from the Sales Leadership Podcast, original episode #5. Mark Smith is VP of Sales for Womply. Womply has not only entered high-growth mode….they’ve been there for awhile now. His secret to ongoing growth? It isn’t a sales methodology, technology, or process…though they certainly use all of those things well. The fuel that has helped Mark’s team succeed has been developing trust. Mark shares why trust is the currency of every relationship and how they’ve built a team where trust helps them execute, adapt, and smash all of their sales goals. Mark believes the biggest challenge each leader has is to get every team member to believe in themselves. And here’s an interesting twist: If you have to ask for their trust, you’re doing it wrong. Mark lays down a blueprint on how to create a team fueled by mutual trust. The results speak for themselves.
