Mindset Promoting the proper approach to transforming service associates into salespeople is first done by overcoming any negative perceptions that may surround the concept of sales. Stereotypes must be directly addressed and diffused by introducing the concept of sales as a team, character, and profit- building exercise that when executed properly benefits all involved.
