What is your biggest L in sales & how did your manager react?

Sounds a little negative I know but hey, the L's are what make us right....right? πŸ˜•


I'd love to hear about some of the biggest L's that you guys/gals have taken, what you've learned but most importantly, how your manager reacted when you took the L?

Not me, but had a colleague of mine accidentally send an email to a prospect intended for someone internal, lets just say I didn’t see them the next week.

I work in recruitment and I once dialed a candidate by accident and didn't realize - the candidate overheard myself and my team lead discussing how to trial close him. He was not happy and refused to join the client if our company had anything to do with it.

The placement was pledged and down as a 99% chance so I was surprised when my TL didn't hit the ceiling.Β 

We ended up working with the end client, coaching him on how to close the candidate, essentially telling them to throw us under the bus, and in return, we provided a small discount with the following placement.Β
