[Prospect] "Wow, Mike, I was actually just reviewing the email you sent over earlier. Great timing." [Sales] Excellent, I will be brief. I noticed you were checking out some of the information around the link I sent on improving company culture. Wanted to circle back and see if there was anything you had questions on, or if there was further information I could point you towards that would be helpful ...
  36. 36. PART 2 [Prospect] "Well, we started by eliminating time tracking, and we’re also putting plans in motion to do team lunches on a weekly basis. Its a journey we are taking day-by-day." [Sales] "Interesting ... Many people I’ve spoken with recently are implementing a similar team lunch idea. What they’ve found is by supplementing that with other voluntary benefits, they’ve been able to achieve their goals in much less time. Is there a good time for us to connect this week and I can show you a little more about how we help companies achieve better work/life balance for employees?” [Prospect] "Sure, how about 10 AM tomorrow?"
