For many in sales, there is a desire to transition into sales leadership and for many, it is about the prestige, the title and the perceived influence that comes with leadership. Unfortunately many are thrust into leadership roles based on their current levels of high performance, and do not know how to make a successful transition. One of the best pieces of advice I ever received was from my first General Manager, who said on day ...
I enjoyed some awesome conversations with clients this week, in particular in relation to standards of excellence. A key element of becoming an exceptional sales leader is to identify what it is that you would like to be known for, and create a set of leadership values and standards of behaviour that enable you to pursue that objective. One client in particular has seen the power of that play out this week, and it has elevated his ...
As sales leaders, we are the barometers of our team and our team is a mirror in that they are simply a reflection of us. It is therefore vital that we are projecting an optimistic approach, that we take on and project a growth mindset, and that we exude self confidence. Understand, this is not the fake it till you make it approach, it is a groundedness that enables us to be confident and project that.
If there is one thing that frustrates me more than anything else – it is sales leaders and teams making excuses for where they are at:
The list goes on and on. In sales and in business, we can either make excuses, or we can make progress. We can’t do both.
In working with leaders, I find that many of them can’t help but get involved in tasks and projects, sometimes doing things for their team, rather than allowing their team to get it done themselves.

Many times when we get in and do it for them, we are hindering and in the process, we are creating a co-dependency environment. This i...
Becoming a world class communicator takes many elements, including being able to articulate a message in an influential way. As sales leaders, there are 2 key areas that we can focus our attention on at a deeper level to really enhance our communication capabilities. And whilst this is not rocket science, getting better at these 2 can certainly help us become world class communicators.
When working with sales leaders, I will often ask them the question – ‘what will be your legacy?’ The responses vary, from blank stares to laughter and everything in between. Certainly as a new Sales Leader, it is probably not something at the top of the agenda right now, however, it is one of the most important aspects of leadership. Thankfully I had a terrific mentor early in my sales leadership career who challenged me to become...
Many people appear to be oblivious to their own thinking and of the conversations they have. And many try to hide their thinking from others, for fear of being labelled or criticised. We must understand that we will spend more time with ourself than with anyone else, ever. So the most important conversation we’ll ever have is the conversation we have with ourself. Stands to reason then that we make it a positive conversation.
As we begin the final quarter of 2021, it is an ideal time to take stock, to reflect on the year so far, identify the wins and the lessons, and re-focus on the actions & behaviours required to make 2021 our best year yet. No matter where you are, there is a new starting point. Use the final quarter to set up a powerful platform for an exceptional 2022. You may not be happy with your progress. You may not be happy with your achi...
Your team is, and always will be a reflection of you. The behaviours you see play out in your team and highly likely to be the behaviours you have developed. Do you like what you see? As sales leaders, we must become crystal clear on what excellence looks like and begin to model this excellence every single day.
