Leadership - Developing Your People and Plan While Summer Rages

Gary Elekes

Leadership is a concept which has many components, and creating alignment is the main focus of this video. A company needs a clear Vision to what it will aspire to become, a core purpose and "Why" for the team, and your clients need to have a defined journey which you have created and can execute. Leadership has many traits, and it is a complex subject so we explore the key attributes of effective company leadership, talent development, and use of a planning system to highlight how you can achieve your goals.

Performance and Productivity: How to Prioritize Your Time and Do What Matters Most This Summer

Rob Shallenberger

In the craziness of the summer months, it is more important than ever to prioritize your time and do what matters most! In fact, we'll share a process you can use to increase performance and productivity by at least 30 - 50%!
Maybe you can relate to what we found in a survey of more than 1,260 managers and leaders. 68% percent of those leaders feel like their biggest challenge is how to prioritize their time, yet 80% of those same people don’t have a process to do what matters most. We understand how challenging it can be to stay ahead of the curve and get everything done, that’s why we developed specific processes and tools you can use to dramatically increase productivity.
During this powerful Do What Matters Most™ virtual experience, we’ll share three high-performance habits you can use to accomplish an additional 500 - 1000 meaningful activities this year…stress-free! Imagine what that means to the success of your business when you are able to prioritize your time and do what matters most!

Create a Summer Heat Wave: The ABCs of Sales

Drew Cameron

Opportunities series, I stated emphatically that "Sales is NOT a Numbers Game." The numbers or sales performance statistics people, departments, and companies measure called key performance indicators (KPIs), and metrics ONLY measure results such as closing ratio, average sale, volume, etc. An individual's, department's, or company's sales performance comes from the ABCs NOT the numbers. The numbers are the performance data yielded from the execution on a variety of Activities, Behaviors, Connections, and other ABCs that get funneled through a department's and company's people and processes. The ABCs drive the numbers and determine the outcomes, results, customer experience, and overall performance metrics and KPIs, or what I call OPTICS. OPTICS provide indicators for Sales Leadership to determine if the ABCs had the desired impact. If not, which ABCs require adjustment if the company hopes to Create a Summer Heat Wave from the Blue Ocean Opportunities its marketing and operations generate?

Operating Your Business with a Plan in Summer's Busiest Months

This video explains the WHY of having a plan and the usage within your team to drive execution.

Don’t Get Burned This Summer: Sales is NOT a Numbers Game

Drew Cameron

More leads do not necessary yield more jobs or revenue. Fewer leader leads do not necessarily mean fewer jobs or revenue. Sales performance comes down to what salespeople do with the leads they get. Most salespeople focus on calculations sometimes referred to as key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics such as closing ratio, average sale, volume, etc. to measure an individual's, department's, or company's sales performance. This a GRAVE MISTAKE! Sales statistics are the result of how the game was played, but they DO NOT tell you how the game was played, they only leave clues. Statistics are the results of all the activities, behaviors, connections, things and stuff that get funneled through a department's and company's people and processes. The stats only provide OPTICS into what happened. Sales Leadership and salespeople need to convert that stats back into the story the activities, behaviors, connections, things and stuff yielded to determine if those items were correct or need improvement. Without OPTICS, a person, department and company are flying blind. Don't let the numbers alone burn you by thinking sales is a numbers game. I'll explain this in episode 2.

Elevated Consumer Buying Experience 4: Stop selling. Start Compelling. Distinguishing Differences that Make the Difference.

Drew Cameron

Today, in-home selling seems to be a profession that drives customers away. People reluctantly deal with salespeople and a sales process to buy the things they want.
