How the ‘Let’s See If..’ Business Coach Strategy Can Work in Your Business
SUNDAY 10.30am — TO BE DELIVERED MONDAY MORNINGo-WATER-POLO-facebook.jpg

I’ve just come back from coaching my Masters water polo team this morning..

and I had an idea that I used at training I think you can use with your team.

You see,  it’s important in water polo (like so many other sports and businesses) to pass the ball cleanly..

Cleanly means when you get it, you can do something with it quickly, accurately, strategically; to put your team to advantage.

Not so cleanly means it’s in the wrong spot or misses you completely.

So the whole flow of the movement breaks down (and the opposition have a chance to recover.)

Why Swift, Clean Movement?

Sales Training Christmas Lessons and 7 Power Productivity Tips for the New Year

Christmas Giving and 7 Power Tips for 2014 Productivity in Your Business LeighXmas-facehat

 

It’s Christmas time and I’m in the spirit of Christmas..

I read a quote in Dan Kennedy’s ‘No BS Wealth Attraction in the New Economy’ from Dr Edward Kramer (author of “Synchromatics and inventor of the ‘Thank-U-Gram”) which struck me…

‘The hole you give through is the hole you receive through…’

It makes great sense doesn’t it.. How can you receive in greater quantities than you give?

And the goal of giving is not to expect anything in return…

So in the spirit of giving in the season of giving, I just wanted to send you my ‘all the best to you and your family’ Christmas wishes…

A GIVING MARKETING STRATEGY YOU CAN USE IN 2014

Talking of receiving, I’ve just received a lovely gift from Ben Wendell and Zac Nelles at Newsletter Marketing Systems. They ran a very innovative Referral Competition (which I didn’t even know I was in..).

You could do something similar in the New Year.

Why Hire a Wolf NOT a Seagull

Sales Training Confession #42: Sometimes I feel like Harvey Keitel’s character in the movie Pulp Fiction – Winston Wolfe – the Wolf…wolfsolveproblems.jpg

I often feel like a White Collar Sales or Management Wolf..

I get called into sales training, Sales Management,  business situations, and often asked to:

  • Clean this s…t up
  • Fix it..
  • Get me out of trouble
  • Help me get more leads
  • Help us convert more proposals into closed deals
  • Help us present this Pitch so we win the deal..
  • Help get this team working well again..

Just yesterday I spent a morning with 3 highly experienced White Collar professionals who have a great product and service, great track record helping manufacturing and production companies make and save millions of dollars.

Continuous and Never Ending Improvement..

AFL North Melbourne Coach Brad Scott put it another way ..

“If the rest of the competition is getting better by 10% in the off season, we need to be getting better by 15 or 20% to get ahead of them…’

‘You can’t just improve at the rate of the competition if you want to get ahead of them..

You have to get better at a faster rate than the competition to get ahead of them…’

You actually have to GET BETTER AT GETTING BETTER..

I spent today with one of my client teams doing a half  day session on just that..
