Best Practices

“We need to improve our overall effectiveness and productivity. What can we do to ensure we’re leveraging the best practices?”

Our customers often tell us that improving the total effectiveness and productivity of their sales organization and channels is critical to their success. One very effective way to accomplish that is by leveraging best practices—having more salespeople do what your top performers do to be successful.

Imagine what it would be like if all your salespeople were top producers. Just think about the impact on your revenue, your competition, your customers…and on you!

You can best achieve this outcome by rapidly deploying new solutions that identify, document and leverage best practices. Realistically, you will never have all your salespeople as top producers at the same point in time. Yet, having a few more top producers will have a magnified impact on your overall sales results.

I remember attending a sales conference early in my sales career. Part of the agenda was hearing from salespeople, sales managers and partners about the success they had in the previous year.

Three big takeaways from that experience influence my consulting to this day:

  1. What if I had learned about these successes right away and had immediately applied them to my sales strategy? Imagine the even better results I—and the company—would have achieved!
  2. Many salespeople, sales managers and partners are not experts at assessing their own best practices. They do so many excellent things intuitively that they are unaware of what really contributes to their success—and hence are unable to teach others.
  3. I should always ask the question: What is the best way to apply what I learned? Often we recognize the success of others but have a difficult time turning that information into new actions.

We help you identify what your top performers do, and then translate that into practical, actionable steps that help others enhance their own sales success.
