Why Goal Setting Is Important In Sales Organisations?

Should salespeople set personal goals over and above their sales targets? I mean, targets are there for a reason, to motivate your sales team to perform and achieve the monetary incentives you have set for them. Many sales managers think this should be enough. So why do so many sales people miss their sales targets? And what does this have to do with organisations setting goals for sales people? When I ask sales people why the business has set them sales targets, and who they are for. The usual response I hear is “they are for the salesperson”, but this is WRONG. Sales targets are not for the person, they are for the shareholders. Businesses are required to plan and forecast revenue, [...]

How To Create Your Personal Breakthrough

Did you wake up this morning hoping today will be the day for your personal breakthrough? Everyday we see breakthroughs happen. A new artificial intelligence technology making waves in the market, a new overnight success actress stars in a Hollywood blockbuster, an IPO that makes the founders of a business billions in a single day. “When will I get my personal breakthrough?” We often see others having breakthroughs and wonder when it will be our turn.

De-Stress To Hit Your Goals

If you imagine someone completely focused on achieving their goals, what sort of picture comes to mind? For most of us, we imagine someone working hard, pushing their body and mind to the limits to fulfil their dreams, not stopping until they realise their full potential. Stress and goals just seems to be a necessary combination. However, that stress could be the very reason we are having to work so hard in the first place. Neuroscientists can now differentiate between behaviours that are goal-oriented or habitual as they are supported by anatomically different brain systems. Research shows that goal-directed behaviour is related to the prefrontal cortex, whereas habitual activities seem to be coordinated by the dorsolateral striatum. The reason the prefrontal cortex [...]

Instead, the real reason people don't follow through with their resolutions comes down to a lack of understanding of behaviour change. In fact, there are 5 main reasons why New Year's Resolutions fail to work, and some simple steps we can take to fix this. Before we get into those 5 [...]
