Kennebunkport just kicked off February is for Lovers. Last December, the town celebrated it's 38th Christmas Prelude. Theme months have turned this fishing town and summer time beach community and into a year round location for fun.
Feel free to check it out or ask me about it, but that's not what this is about.
If you're a regular reader, you may have noticed that in December I wrote about AI and your salespeople and which your customers prefer and which you should prefer. In January, I found myself writing about sales competencies and how not understanding them can really cause us to hire the wrong person or not be able to help the sales rep that needs help. I don't plan themes. They just land in front of me and this month is about you.
As you may know, I'm a coach. Trainers do classes for thousands of reps hoping that somebody listens and gets something out of their talk. I work 1:1 with
- salespeople that need to get better to keep their job.
- salespeople that are top producers, but want more.
- sales managers that want to grow their salespeople.
You may also know that I use the OMG Sales Assessments and the 21 Sales Core Competencies as a tool to assure that my client and I are pulling in the same direction on the highest priority that day. February is special because Dave Kurlan is presenting SalesEnomics on February 26th and if you're a sales manager or sales vp, I'm inviting you to attend. Dave will compare some incredible statistics that shed light on company and sales best practices.
So, the theme for February is to help you understand the whys and hows of your salespeople's successes (or nots).
