The podcast is based on the book ‘Selling Through Partnering Skills’. The interview format explores how guests use the concept of partnering intelligence (PQ) in their role related to the world of professional selling with the intention of providing listeners with valuable advice on how to adapt a more modern approach to selling.

Along with the guest’s background, each of the elements of PQ is briefly discussed to uncover real life application and best practice. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t come across the partnering intelligence/PQ as a concept before, if you are successful in sales you will certainly know and use the elements.

And that is the purpose of the interview to find out how others use partnering skills to strengthen their sales approach so that you can add to your own skillset.

The elements of PQ are

  • Trust
  • Win-win orientation
  • Interdependence
