Our blog this week was going to be focused on sales but after watching the Superbowl, we decided to tweak the topic a bit. Watching Coach Carroll talking about the win, I was struck by his focus and by the attitude he fosters and 'coaches' on his team and it reminded me of what our team has been focused on and how we are attacking the New Year. Sales? YES- when you are talking about taking care of a team and improving results you are speaking about sales as well as every other area of success!
In order to create a winning team and a sales environment that really produces, we have to focus on a few things and, according to Coach Carroll, that focus needs to begin with the FULL PERSON.
Take Care of the Entire Person: Sales ability is important but when we focus on the health of the individual in all areas of their lives, we are a party to helping strengthen the ENTIRE individual and that focus equates to better numbers on the sales board. When we treat people like numbers, we are asking for mediocre and heartless results. When we take the time to care about every area of our coworkers' lives, we have begun the process of developing a winning team.
