The truth is the only reason people hate roleplaying is because they lack the knowledge and understanding of what they are doing.
Take Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) from Moneyball as an example: he thought he was ready to let a team member go, only to realize that he didn’t know how to do it when Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) drilled him.
BUT because of the roleplaying Peter Brand got to do, he was able to tell a player they were traded efficiently and effectively.
Well, if Peter Brand can do it, so can you.
Maybe you aren’t managing a baseball team, but you are likely working with customers or prospects. So instead of messing up in front of your customers, start role playing and messing up in front of your coworkers, so you can bring your SUPERSTAR sales skills out on the field.
That means practicing and drilling real world sales scenarios. You must practice over, over, and over again, as consistency and repetition are what will guarantee you success.
