Today’s Training Tuesday Podcast is a continuation of our February theme, prospecting.  The focus of this training is developing a prospecting attitude.  You will hear from SSG Edwardo Herrera of the Wyoming Army National Guard.  He is a dynamic Master Badge holding RRNCO who has overcome many obstacles in his life.   Along the way he developed an aggressive, winning attitude which has propelled him into success in the Army National Guard.

New techniques will only be of marginal help to an RRNCO without the drive to achieve and overcome.  We must train our thinking to remain focussed and driven in order to do what it takes to win.

ACTION RESPONSE:  Comment below or send your First Line Leader one thing you want to do better or more of to improve your prospecting.


This is phenomenal training on prospecting.  Listen to the first 18 minutes to be challenged in your fundamentals of prospecting.
