My final blog post of 2015 is a brag article. Sorry. Feel free to stop reading now if you don't care about the outcome of the 2015 Top Sales Awards. Before I list the awards, I want to congratulate all of this year's nominees and winners. This year's winners are truly the best of the best and that was further emphasized this year with the elimination of the popular vote. Instead, all of the winners were determined by a panel of 24 judges, all sales experts who were not nominated for awards this year. Objective Management Group (OMG) and I were nominated for 7 awards and here are the results:
For the fifth consecutive year, OMG won the Gold Medal for Top Sales Assessment Tool. That makes me so proud and to me it's a more important award than all of the personal awards combined. Developing the finest sales evaluation and assessment has been my life's work and I am so proud of the work my team does every single day of the year. Not a day goes by where we don't attempt to make every component of our sales force evaluation and sales candidate assessments better. The award continues to validate those efforts!
My Blog, Understanding the Sales Force, won the Gold Medal for Top Sales & Marketing Blog of 2015. I am very proud that my Blog has earned a medal for 5 consecutive years!
One of my Blog Posts, Fix Your Mediocre Pipeline for Accurate Sales Forecasts, won the Bronze Medal for Top Sales & Marketing Blog Post of 2015.
My eBook, 63 Powerful Tips for a Huge Increase in Sales, won the Bronze Medal for the Top Sales & Marketing eBook of 2015
And finally, I was awarded the Bronze Medal for Top Sales & Marketing Thought Leader of 2015.
If you're still here, thanks for reading all year. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and a safe and happy New Year. I'll be back with more thought-provoking material in January!
