Hear me out: The Biggest Loser - for closed lost deals

While we can learn a lot from closed won deals. The same can be said for closed lost deals. My company has a slack channel devoted to only closed lost deals with all sorts of feedback on how and why the prospect went another direction. It can get more action than the closed won channel at times. Oftentimes, it makes for funnier/interesting stories as well!

Learning from mistakes is a lot more valuable if you donโ€™t have to make all of them yourself first.ย

Such a channel can have a huge impact on new reps. And even seasoned reps can pick up new trends with the customers.ย

it's valuable to know why you lose a deal and helping others to not fall into the same traps. sometimes it's more valuable than closed-won stories.ย

I love discussing closed lost with my team!

ย Itโ€™s almost like therapy and we can all discuss what went wrong or what could have been done differently.
