‘Carol, you need to help me, I want to fire the sales team today…..’
I’ve answered quite a few telephone calls over the years that all start the same way…
Some of them were genuine requests, they really did want to fire the sales team and we sorted those out.
Some were pure venting…and I handled those too.
And a few were from people who had actually had enough, end of their tether….
Fire the Sales Team Today! At some point, it’s kill or cure time
In fact, if you decide it’s a call you need to make to anyone at any time, then I hope the lucky recipient would advise you to look at one last attempt to cure before you go for the kill.
Anyway, that aside, you and I will have, at some point, walked through the sales office, sat in on a sales call, overheard a sales conversation taking place, or seen a sales email that have made us think the sales world has gone mad.
