  • 31. Summary…  Most “Problem Clients” have miss-set expectations to begin with. Set expectations clearly.  Consider “Problem Clients” an opportunity for additional sales.. It’s not how you fix it, it’s how you react to it.  Can’t manage what you can’t measure. Cliché, yes…  Making your sales AE’s process easy, makes your customers buying experience easy.  Being a resource master, communication ninja albeit internal / external flattens out issues before they become issues.

  • 34. Key Ideas to Take Away:  Building a sales strategy to meet ever rising client expectations.  Proactively managing a client relationship to prevent the rise of the “problem client”.  Balancing client management activities while blowing- out sales and productivity goals.  Applying successful client management strategies internally, to excel beyond the rest of the best.
  • 35. Evolution 1991-2007 & The Human Element:  “Problems” Offer the Balance to Career Success • Sales goals, customer management, competition advantage • Problems are the opportunity to become more engaged  Accessibility, Immediacy & Action • Become the funnel of all activity, not the print on the company business card. • Tomorrow is only good enough if 2nd place is as well.  Communication, is not always a thumb exercise • Knowledge is the blanket of comfort to humans. • Communication is a 360 degree process.
