What makes someone successful on your team?

We talk a lot about personal brand on my team: how you show up to a conversation and partner with those around you to successfully close a sale can often be a key factor in success. Whether it is committing to a positive experience for the client or welcoming a new customer, giving your all, all the time, is a part of our culture.
