Many CEOs permit sales misfits to hang on too long. Their lingering demise is painful to observe, hurts the company and everyone else.
Call me a heretic, but you can decide NOT to do business with certain customers.
Really… you can!
The most successful companies choose the right customers, and don’t wait for those customers to choose them.
You’re not going to interfere with your managers or do their jobs for them. But you do need to build a real collaboration with them.
Are there really any bargains when it comes to employee salaries?
You can certainly find low-priced people, but cheap is rarely a bargain.
Don’t rush to fill that vacant job.
The right person is worth waiting for. Take the opportunity to strengthen your team (and you may cure a problem you’ve had for a long time).
