Anyone can create a podcast, which is both the best and most risky thing about this popular medium. You never quite know what you’ll find when you push “play.”

When you’re looking to expand your professional skills, you don’t have time to waste searching for the podcasts that are worth a listen. With our breakdown of five of the best sales podcasts, you’re sure to find high-quality content that will inspire you and drive your next big deal.

1. Conversations with Women in Sales

For women trying to find their place in the male-dominated sales industry, Conversations with Women in Sales (CWWIS) is a refreshing resource. Each episode of this podcast showcases a woman who’s killing it in sales or a “male ally,” and topics range from how to have a growth mindset to dealing with confrontation at work to developing a winning pitch. CWWIS is upholding the legacy of its late founder, technology sales legend Barbara Giamanco.

Why it’s great: There’s a network of women behind this podcast: Women Sales Pros. They hold events and offer additional resources to support up-and-coming sales leaders.

Accelo: A Sales Hack Like No Other

Improving your personal sales skills is always a great idea, but professional development can only take you so far. If your company isn’t using supportive technology that can automate the sales process, you’ll have less freedom to test out those new skills — and be at a disadvantage compared to your competitors.

Between podcast episodes, take a moment to chat with your colleagues about what you collectively need to be a high-performing team. Suggest they consider an integrated CRM like Accelo and share how easy it is to start a free trial or schedule a demo.
