Key Skills for High-Growth Leaders
Leadership is one of the toughest but most rewarding jobs in sales! We love our teams but the same set of issues and opportunities continue to surface:
- ‘”I have to beg my team to keep their opportunities up-to-date in the CRM and most of the time it feels like they’re just going through the motions”
- “I know coaching my team is important but it’s hard and I don’t spend as much time doing it as I’d like.”
- “My team says they’ll do things but then they don’t! I need to make sure everyone (including me) is accountable and does what they’ve committed to.”
- “I’m not sure my team trying as hard as they can. I need to figure out how I can unlock more of their discretionary effort.”
- “Giving my team feedback (and getting some from them too!) is critical to helping everyone get better but giving and getting honest, authentic feedback is hard.”
If you’re thinking of taking this program, DO IT! You won’t be sorry. As a 2nd line leader, the program helped me become more consistent and structured in the high-value management behaviors I had been doing for years while adding a ton of helpful new tactics for getting the most out of my team. I really can’t say enough good things about it.
Be the leader they would FIGHT to work with again!
Being the type of people-centric, high-impact leader your team would fight to work with requires a completely different set of skills than simply being a top-performing individual contributor.
As leaders, we’re tasked with driving the engagement, performance, and career development of our people. But leading sales teams, especially during periods of rapid growth and adversity, can be challenging!
Central to these skills are five key leadership skills that have a massive impact on our success and ability to grow and scale our businesses quickly.
This foundational program will help leaders understand these key skills and provide tools, templates, and guides to start you down the road to leadership mastery. The program also includes coaching sessions to ensure participants are maximizing the application of the concepts and tactics they learn in the field with their teams.
