It goes without saying that if a business is going to maximize sales revenues they would need to focus on three key areas of business…the people, the processes and performance.  I call these…essentials.

Having the right people with the right skills and talents is essential.  And the right skills and talents are more than just experience…they are essentials such as excellent communications skills, a likeable disposition, a positive perspective and generally the kind of person who likes helping people buy a car.  Here is a simple tip...if having a friendly and outgoing personality is important to your sales development process...hire friendly people.  Friendly is one trait that is difficult if not impossible to develop

The processes those great people are using can make or break the even the best sales person and cause them to fail (or succeed less) at attracting or selling/presenting to and retaining a customer.  Whether it is steps in your sales process (road to the sale), or when and how customer follow-up is done, or something else related to your sales and client development process…process is important and the right people bring life to those processes and produce outstanding results.

The third essential is performance. Whether it is business or athletics…performance is essential to winning on the field, or in a sales situation.  Good people, with good processes also have to perform at a high level to achieve high results.  Execution of any process or plan is essential to success.   Imagine a sports team with a bunch of nice/good/motivated people and a poor game strategy (process).   They would not succeed as often.  Imagine good people with good process and solid consistent performance results.  A winning combination of essentials for sure.

So…look around today.  Do you sense that an improvement of people, process, or performance in your business would improve sales revenues in your business.  If you think yes…reach out to your team and start talking about improving each of these essential areas of your business.   If you need outside me.  I would be honored to hear from you.
