Being a woman in sales presents unique challenges. From microaggressions to male-centric sales leadership, Heidi's goal is to share with other women what had worked for her despite these obstacles to success. She shares that, despite how it may appear, embracing femininity is a woman's competitive advantage. 

The ability to listen, for instance, comes more naturally to women and is a skill that all saleswomen should lean on. Heidi also discusses diversity hires and how awareness and intention will produce the innovation that is needed for organizations to succeed in 2022 and beyond. 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Embracing femininity as a competitive differentiator
  • A passion for positive change and teaching other women
  • Selling as a woman is a superpower
  • Hire for real diversity: Enrich culture and women in sales leadership

QUOTES

Heidi: "I was always making President's Club so, despite the culture and environment, I was able to find my way and do it my way. And then what became important was, I guess now the reason my life's mission is really running GirlzWhoSell is because I wanted to show other women how to do it."

Heidi: "To me, representation matters, and these young women can't be what they can't see. And so, giving them exposure to diverse women from around the world who are the top of their game and successful in their careers was really important to me."

Heidi: "On just about every single way that you can measure sales, women generally outperform their male counterparts. And so, as a man, I think they're catching on. They're like, huh, we need to add more women into our team but it needs to be, to your point, it can't just be a box-checking exercise."

Heidi: "They are so narrow in terms of the definition of what's going to be successful or what they're looking for. And I just think that we have to just bust that up and start looking at nontraditional channels and giving people with different levels of experience or from different cultures and different backgrounds opportunities to succeed."
