If you ask me what comes to mind when I think “salesperson” it’s three people: Jim Halpert, Dwight Schrute, and Michael Scott, of NBC’s “The Office.” I probably watch too much TV. All three of these people are fictional, and don’t seem to have any bearings on what sales, or the world, is actually like. Yet, I couldn’t help but wonder, if I dug deep enough, could find some real value in their zaniness? Adored across the nation, this silly comedy follows the employees of Dunder Mifflin, a paper company. The show, which ended in 2013, was completely ridiculous, yet, there are still some takeaways that any sales rep could benefit from. Here are some sales tips that “The Office” taught us over nine seasons.
