The challenge that sales teams will now face is how to adjust and continue to achieve sales targets. Here are some practical ideas on how to cope with the new sales reality.
How often have you had pipeline review conversations, going through all your opportunities, then when asked for an update you answer along the lines of, “I’m waiting to hear back from the client but expect to close the deal.”

You talk differently to your children, friends, parents and even grandparents – its time you did the same thing with your prospects / clients.

Sales success is never owned – it is only rented, and we pay the rent every day by continually adding new leads and contacts to the top of our funnels.
This incredibly simplistic 4-box model helps you categorise your team members to better understand what you need to adopt, or maintain, to be the best.
