Georgia State University and SOAR Performance Group hosted over 50 senior executives from companies like Georgia Pacific, IBM, Ricoh, AT&T, First Data, Worldpay, Equifax, Ericsson, NCR, SAP, Merrill Lynch and Randstad at the inaugural event for the Sales Leadership Community in Atlanta. Also represented were several emerging growth companies like Navicure, Aptean, Pros and Verint. The event was a tremendously successful forum for best practice sharing and executive networking for sales leaders within the greater Atlanta area. The event began with networking and ended with a panel discussion about how top sales executives lead through effective sales transformation.
In this final part of the series, we are going to cover the importance of removing barriers for successful execution and adapting the execution of your sales strategy to a changing business environment. In Part 1 and Part 2, we discuss insights and creating focus on next year’s sales strategy as well as cascading the strategy through the organization and connecting that strategy to compensation.
Welcome back to ‘Actions the Best Sales Leaders are Executing Now for Next Year’. In Part 1, we covered insights for getting off to a quick start in the new year and creating focus on next year’s sales strategy. As discussed in Part 1, communication played a big role in helping to create focus around the strategy. In Part 2, communication is just as vital as we focus on cascading the sales strategy through the organization and connecting that sales strategy to compensation.
Time to start planning for the next sales year!
It seems crazy but it is true. The longer you wait to plan for the new year, the less time you have to proactively plan and your planning turns into reacting. With a new year comes new inspiration, new challenges, new trends and often times in sales, a new sales strategy. We understand the challenges adopting and executing a new sales strategy can present today’s sales leaders. So today we are starting a three part series aimed at helping sales leaders prepare for and drive successful execution of new sales strategies in the new year.
In this part of our series on considerations for your next sales transformation, our focus turns to how you as a leader can successfully make the transformation happen. When it comes to leading sales transformation, there are three pillars that we see as critical actions for success:
- Articulating a vision of the future that is compelling for the organization
- Defining the expectations for the team members in the new organization
- Facilitating higher Change Velocity to move the organization towards the new state
