Braithwaite admired Ronaldo and surrenders to Messi’s talent

first_imgMartin Braithwaite (28 years) is not a forward to use. His ideal position is that of nine, but he can also turn on his sides as an extreme and even exercise indoors. Options that in the Leganés He looked frequently and they fit his personality. “I like responsibility and pressure. It’s a matter of playing and enjoying. My job is to be offensive, to score goals, to show … Nothing to be shy,” he confessed to ACE in his first interview in Spain just landed in the winter market of 2019. The Leganés achieved his assignment of the Middlesbrough after having treated the loan in summer. The insistence of Txema Indias, sports director, was key. On his trips to Toulouse I had seen him on the spot when he played with the Gauls.From Guyanese father, Braithwaite was born in Denmark. He is currently one of the leaders of his team. A goal from you to Ireland allowed the classification of the combined for the Euro 2020. There is a leader. It is also responsible. He arrived in Leganés after having studied for months the movements of his future companions through videos. Admire Laudrup, the last Danish who put on Barça’s shirt and who recommended his signing. “He’s the best player in Denmark’s history, but my idol is another … I’ve always wanted to be like Ronaldo Nazario. I love the game of Brazilians! “Of course, he also surrenders to Messi: “There are many people who believe it is possible to stop Messi. He always does something to you and all you can do is wait for him to fail or have a great day as a team to stop him.”last_img read more

This Unfair Advantage Separates TopNotch Sales Teams from The Rest

first_imgImagine you’re part of a Grand Prix race through the winding streets of Monaco. You’ve got the fastest, most exotic car. The best crew. Powerful fuel. And you’ve been training for years.But, while your rivals zip along the harbor like electric slot cars, you sputter along at a crawl. It turns out, your wheels aren’t perfectly aligned. They’re each set in slightly different directions, creating tremendous friction. And it costs you the race.Racing cars isn’t unlike the race to market leadership. You need a great product (car). A winning team (crew). Funding from supportive investors (fuel). And spades of experience. But if your competitors have those things, too, who makes it across the finish line first?The company with a fully-aligned sales organization, marching in the same direction. Let me explain.The Most Overlooked Trait of Market LeadersMarket-leading companies have an underestimated trait in common: Organization-wide sales consistency.Their sales teams execute the same selling motions, messaging, and call structures, without much deviation from rep to rep. Most sales teams don’t enjoy such consistency. There’s usually a wide variety of haphazard selling approaches from rep to rep. This “delta” of inconsistent selling behaviors creates a bell curve of quota attainment:In that scenario, everyone is “figuring things out on their own.” The top 10-20% figure it out and enjoy massive overachievement. But their stellar performance is canceled out by everyone else who hasn’t cracked the code, leaving the team at break-even overall.Market-leading companies are different. Their selling motions, messages, and call structures are adopted across the team. As a result, they’re crushing it with a performance curve that looks more like this:They have more top producers. They get higher quota attainment from their “middle of the pack” producers. And they have fewer low producers. Having consistent selling behaviors from rep to rep accelerates growth.Erratic behavior, on the other hand, introduces friction and unpredictability into your revenue machine. It’s like flooring a racecar with the wheels all pointed in slightly different directions. Instead of deals moving smoothly from first call to close as if they’re going through a predictable production line, they’re thrown into a violent tornado. Few leads make it out the other side as revenue. Most of them are flung by the friction to a dark corner somewhere.This Data Illustrates What I’m Talking AboutNow for my favorite part: supporting all of this with data. Our team at Gong.io analyzed more than 2,000,000 sales call recordings from a few hundred companies. The calls in this data set were recorded, transcribed, and analyzed with AI to identify selling motions, call structures, sales messaging, and much more.Of the companies in this data set, 17 are described as clear market leaders.*After analyzing the data, here’s the main thing we learned from market-leading companies: Their sales teams have much more consistent selling behaviors from rep to rep.In other words, they are dependable in their selling motions, their messaging, and their call structures. That’s important because it leads to a much smaller gap in quota attainment between their top producers and their “middle-of-the-pack” producers.They have more reps meeting or exceeding full quota.“All-Over-the-Map” Question AskingLet’s dig into some of the data we unearthed to illustrate what I’m talking about. Check out the rate of question asking in market-leading sales organizations. Top and average sellers both spread their questions fairly evenly across their sales calls:It’s hard to identify a crisp difference between the two groups because both of them behave fairly consistently.Now, look at the rate of question asking in companies that were not market leaders:That’s a crisp difference.Disparities like this destroy predictability in your sales machine, especially when they compound over many sales behaviors.The top producers at these companies are on a totally different plane than the average sellers. That is less a testament to the top producers’ greatness and more a testament to the average reps’ erratic execution.“All-Over-the-Map” Call StructuresLet’s look at another insight from our analysis of call structures. Our AI has identified five segments of a typical sales call:Meeting setup (the introduction)DiscoveryPitchAssessmentNext stepsIt looks something like this:The differences in how top producers and average producers at market-leading companies flow through these segments are negligible. There’s less than half a standard deviation in difference. However, in non-market-leading companies, the call structures vary widely. Individual reps spend unpredictable amounts of time on discovery, pitch, etc. which occur at inconsistent points in the call.“Wild West” Sales MessagingHere’s one more data point that illustrates what I’m saying. Top and average producers at market-leading companies mostly deploy similar sales messaging. Here’s a breakdown of messaging themes each group discusses in their intro sales meeting:Sure, there’s some variation, but not much. Especially when you compare how wide the messaging gaps are in non-leading companiesTop and average producers are talking about totally different things. This is a living nightmare in which every sales rep makes up their own questionable narrative. Individuals “do their own thing,” whether they’re a top-notch seller, average, or about to be fired. But in winning companies, the differences in reps’ behaviors are marginal. This consistency is the type of stuff that launches you into market leadership. The kind of thing you tell your grandchildren about one day. While vacationing at your villa on a private beach, piña colada in hand.Get the Entire Team Racing in the Same DirectionHere’s the point I want you to take away from this post:If you have a wide gap between your top sellers and the rest of your team in terms of:Sales motionMessagingCall structureAnd more …Then you have a stubborn “emergency brake” on your revenue growth. You may have cracked the code in terms of your product, your market, your team, and everything else. But if your sales team is all over the map, you’ll be pegged low in your industry’s pecking order. And you’ll stay there.On the other side of this coin, consistency in sales motions, messaging, and call structure across your sales team unleashes growth. It’s like taking the emergency brake off while driving a Porsche 991 Stinger (or the exotic sports car of your choice). AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
