In his book, Quotas! Design Thinking to Solve Your Biggest Sales Challenge, SalesGlobe Managing Partner Mark Donnolo explains the three levers of quota setting: people, sales capacity, and market opportunity. These pivot points have been dramatically impacted by the pandemic. Sales capacity has been affected, with many roles adjusting to a virtual setting, while market opportunity has dramatically shifted. In this webcast, Donnolo and SalesGlobe Partner Michelle Seger, will examine what companies are doing today, how to understand your unique quota challenges, and how to approach solving your quota challenges with methods you can adapt to the evolving future. We’ll also look at the implications of your quota decisions on sales compensation.

Constant Customer Centric Change (C4) - Organisation

It is often frustrating that cultures develop which results in negative impacts on employees including sellers. It is often said that "culture eats strategy for breakfast", and whilst a little Hollywood it is true.

In this part of the learning journey and C4 program, we discuss leaders roles in change definitions, testing of the possibility of success, and most importantly at what level it can be impacted. If the corporation won't change, can you impact change in your division or team, without creating friction?

Constant Customer Centric Change (C4) - Sales

Date TBC

The internet is full of articles on the traits required in the future seller, everyone has a view, well every sales trainer and pundit have a view, mainly based on what they can sell companies in achieving that vision.

In this section of the journey, we will encourage the delegates to place themselves in their buyer's shoes and walk a mile. Its possibly easier than we think but requires reflection, as we are all buyers, if only in the sense of being a consumer. We can certainly inject our personal experiences and consider the impacts of consumerism on business buyers.
