TIP by O'Malley
Think about what keeps you relevant. There is a tendency to focus on the solution and while understanding your company and your competitors’ products does matter, your ability to empathize with your potential customer and anticipate their needs is a far greater determinant of relevance today. Empathy is not just a good idea, it’s a competitive advantage.
