Below is our interview with Dale Zwizinski:
Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.
My name is Dale Zwizinski; I am the SVP of Sales at SmartAction. My focus is bringing back the “Professional” in Sales Professional. I have a passion for sales and sales leadership; the sales landscape has been (and is changing) so quickly that we have to ensure we are providing value to our customers. We have to sell with passion AND integrity internally and externally.
How did your journey lead you to SmartAction?
My journey started as a techy that loved business (even coding in college). I have been involved in 7 different startup companies in 3 different countries (US, UK, Holland), and I have also worked for fortune 500 companies like Oracle. I prefer working with startup/growth companies because I can significantly impact the company and the customers.
What advice would you give to people who are looking to become leaders?
When looking to become a leader, take inventory of yourself and become self-aware of your strengths and blind spots. Additionally, in leadership, EQ >IQ, your job is to make others around you the best they can be for the organization.
What gets you out of bed every morning?
My family gets me out of bed every morning; they are my WHY.
What would you say your personal superpower is?
My personal superpower is to stay grounding in stressful situations that can enable me to think out of the box to come up with solutions that may not be apparent on the surface.
