Decades of experience in developing complex solutions with customers
while building strong partnerships.
I have spent years working in both small and enterprise business environments gaining experience and wisdom. I know that getting results is not simply mastery of your own products and services or simply learning a few selling techniques. Sure to succeed in today business environment requires skills and knowledge but also the ability to act instinctively on intuition gained through hard-won success.
Smart technology providers have learned that you are no longer selling. Instead, you are seeking a deep understanding of a customer's business. Through engagement, attentive listening, intelligent questions and bringing together the right parties the goal is to identify both known and unknown needs and pain points that prevent an organization from being their best. Then to eliminate them.
In today's business world there are no longer buyers and sellers, that’s old school thinking. These days organizations come together as equal partners to understand how to eliminate friction and pain. Business look for more than just the value provided by product or services sold. Sales professionals today use our both our companies and our own personal knowledge, expertise, and experiences to shine a light on hidden obstacles standing in the way of an organizations success.
As a sales professional I am passionate about my customer's success. I feel that a win/ win is the only acceptable outcome. Anything less I would rather walk away and re-engage another time. Getting to that mutually beneficial outcome is my ultimate goal. I want my customer to be ready and excited to implement (and pay) for my solution or services. The hard work of happy customers excited to implement and purchase my products or services pays long-lasting dividends.
Integrity builds legacies.

Michael T. Bosworth
Formally trained in the solution selling methodology and with years of experience I have learned how to bring a consultative approach to identifying pain points within an organization. Once identifying who is all affected by this pain I work to bring all of the right players together and then closely collaborate with my clients and internal technical teams to architect solutions that will bring lasting value.
Qualitative listening to bring deep understanding.
The David Sandler was one of the pioneers to taking a different approach to sales. The Sandler philosophies are a great complement to Solution Selling. The idea of being a more customer focused approach that tries to qualify and speak with the right people and then understand those people and their professional roles and needs. This philosophy tries to help clients realize their own wants and needs for the products or services that you are helping to provide. I see this a a great complement to solution selling taking a consultative and fiduciary approach to selling and trying to always end with a win/ win for everyone.
