No one likes to be sold to. We dislike it when we step onto a car lot and the sales person immediately rushes us. We dislike it when our phone rings during dinner and the telemarketer starts with his sales pitch. We dislike it when the account executive promises us the latest software features, only to realize that we purchased vaporware. Our self-serving agenda drives our interactions with others to attain what we want first. Our self-serving attitude leads to little regard to earning the trust of others before seeking to earn their business – we fail to first establish a relationship before seeking business.
