TCF928: Mind Reading

Sat, 13 Jul 2024

Do you have a habit of assuming a client’s budget based on their appearance or demeanor? Do you presume what features or options a client might want without asking? Well, you need to ditch this bad habit because it can cost you deals and opportunities. Tim and Derek share why assuming you know what a customer wants or can afford is a dangerous game. 

By avoiding mind reading, you open the door to unexpected opportunities and build stronger relationships with your clients. The only mind you should be reading is your own – and it should be telling you to listen more and assume less!


In this episode, Tim and Derek discuss:

  • The importance of not mind reading in sales
  • Resisting the urge to mind read and instead asking open-ended questions like “Tell me more about that.”
  • Helping customers clarify their vision and needs
  • Educating clients on aspects they may not have considered
