Why Investing in Your People is as Important as Investing in Your Forecast

September 9, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm


New date – Thursday, September 3, 2020

As business owners and leaders, we know that the success of our business is contingent upon the success of our people. In times like today, focusing on our people is most important but can also be harder to do as we worry about hitting our monthly, quarterly, and annual targets.

In the realm of sales and revenue organizations, we’re putting even more pressure on our teams right now and need to reevaluate on how we add these new responsibilities, changes we need to make in communication, and how we can help our people to succeed so the business continues to succeed.

Join us as we walk through the value of:

  • Feedback and 1-on-1s
  • Outcomes Over Volume
  • A Personalized Approach to Employee Communication
  • An Adaptable Organization


11:15 AM – Networking

11:30 PM – Presentation

12:30 PM – Q&A
