What makes someone successful on your team?

Our best SDRs come in daily with a plan of action and a hunger to help our prospects achieve their goals. They are hard-working, determined, and have a high level of curiosity and resiliency.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I have a tried and true recipe when it comes to collaboration. First, define the problem and expected outcomes and get stakeholders invested early. Cross-team projects are complex, and transparency ensures healthy relationships, so next, define accountability. Lastly, open lines of communication. Don't underestimate the power of dialogue!
