Inspire Your Salespeople to Achieve Greatness

Posted by Dave Kurlan on Wed, Jun 18, 2008 @ 06:06 AM

If you stayed up late and witnessed the Celtics domination of the Lakers last night, you witnessed more than their first championship in 21 years or their 17th overall.  You saw what it was like to have an entire team totally united and committed to a single goal - a championship - and the emotion - 7 foot tall grown men crying - that overtakes people when they achieve their greatest goal in life.

That's why it's so important to get your sales force totally united on the team goal - a big stretch goal - and committed to doing their part.  And when the team achieves that goal, let's hope that your salespeople will celebrate and experience the thrill of victory the way that the Celtics did last night.
