In this episode, Tom Ziglar, CEO of Ziglar Inc., builds on the words of his father Zig Ziglar, to cut through the noise and help you focus on what’s really important in 2016. Tom describes the basics of sales that will never change. Those have to do with trust integrity and reputation. And, hope. He defines two incredibly effective strategies for sales managers to help motivate their sales teams and kick off 2016 in a more productive fashion. Do you know what dream alignment is? If you're a manager you need to understand this. And in our conversation, Tom reveals exactly how you can use that to help your salespeople achieve their goals, both in work and in life. And he explains why they have found from their decades of training hundreds of thousands sales reps that the most successful individual salespeople are those who invest in themselves (and why the top performers invest 3% to 5% of their income in their own personal and professional development). If you're a sales leader, you definitely want to listen to this episode now. There is no better way for you to kick off the new sales year than with these inspirational lessons from Tom Ziglar.
