  • Work on being a great sales coach – think back to the best coach you’ve ever had – remember how they worked with you, motivated you etc. Be a great coach and results with follow. 80/20 rule - Keep in mind that managers typically spend 80% of their time with 20% of their team who are considered to be underperforming, and 80% of the profitable activities within their department come from 20% of their employees.
  • Segmentation of your organization and client base based on key patterns will help you focus and generate lift. Identify key customer segments and understand how better process and people management can yield significant results. Don’t ignore clients – they are your base of sustainable, predictable revenue.
