Welcome to another Front Line Friday with my remarkable guest, Bridget Gleason. On this week’s episode, Bridget and I discuss, among other topics, employment-related questions people have asked Bridget, the sales team characteristics of companies in different stages of growth, whether personal growth or employment stability is more important to a sales professional, and how a manager should make the decision to terminate an underperforming rep.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

[1:24] Andy sets the topic: employment questions that sales reps and managers have asked Bridget.

[2:39] How does a rep, who is being recruited by other firms, know when it’s time to leave their current company?

[3:45] Questions to ask yourself when considering an opportunity to jump to a new job at another company.

[6:14] When will I look like a job hopper? Is there an appropriate length of time to stay at a position? How long is too long?

[10:26] Boards and CEOs tend to project company development through stages. What do CEOs want to know about a salesperson’s skill set, career history and goals?

[12:42] Bridget talks about different types of salespeople choosing to work at companies in different stages of a growth.

[14:38] When the corporate environment changes around you and loses its appeal, what do you do?

[16:35] If the opportunity to keep learning from people you respect goes away, do you look for a better place to learn and grow, or do you hang on?

[18:55] Reps tend to prioritize opportunities to learn and grow. Is an offer of more money a good substitute for growth? [20:55] Do people coming into the profession see sales as a great career path in itself, or as a stepping stone to something bigger? Is one view more appropriate?

[24:14] If you’ve crushed your quota, and there are days left in the month, is it time to take it easy?

[26:14] Should you put a salesperson on a performance improvement plan once you are certain that they’re not a good culture fit?
