The Leadership Playbook: What Not to Do. Who Not to Do It With.

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Strategy is about deciding how you intend to compete and win. It’s your plan to create an advantage, and it is how you create focus. As a leader, you are charged with ensuring that your sales strategies and sales tactics are aligned with the company’s overall strategy; they serve as a guide to what you will do.Strategy is also a guide to what you will not do.Who You Won’t ServeBringing strategy to life means deciding who you will not serve. It dictates who you will not pursue as clients as much as it dictates who you will. It is the underlying foundation for both targeting (the dream clients you will call on) and disqualifying (who you will not call on).If your company is not the price leader, your strategy will dictate that you forego calling on prospects whose primary deciding factor for choosing a partner is price. A price-driven prospect needs value creation around obtaining a lower price, and your value-creation lies elsewhere. That’s a strategic mismatch.Some large, well-known companies live their strategy, and it is, in part, why they are so successful. Apple Computers purposely and willingly gives up market share in laptop computers by targeting and selling to a higher price point; they are willing to lose all of the potential laptop buyers whose primary concern is price. The other side is WalMart. They are the low price leader, but if you want a clean, bright store instead of a warehouse for your household shopping, WalMart is willing to forego your business.This guidance is critical to leading the sales force effectively. When you can tell your sales force who not to call and why, you free up their time and the resources to focus on who you do want them to pursue.What We Won’t DoTargeting and qualifying are also more effective when the sales force has been provided concrete guidance as to what you won’t do.If there are some things that you can’t, won’t, or don’t want to do because your strategy dictates otherwise, then helping the sales force to understand the strategy prevents them from wasting time pursuing the wrong prospects.If a prospect requires a solution that you cannot provide, if they have very specific needs that you aren’t able to meet, or if they operate in a way that requires something other than what you do, eliminating the time working on these prospects frees up time for better activities.Because you need to identify and move opportunities through the pipeline from target to close, it’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to serve everybody. You might believe that maybe you can find a way to make what you do work, or maybe you could change the prospect’s mind about what they need. And sometimes, you may be able to find a way. But the great majority of the time, doing so is a more complicated decision that means making a bad strategic choice.Your strategy should guide what you do, as well as what you will not do. It should also guide who you target and who you disqualify. These decisions are critical, and you owe the sales force clear guidance.last_img read more

Sciatic nerve

first_imgThe main nerve traveling down the leg is the sciatic nerve. Pain associated with the sciatic nerve usually originates higher along the spinal cord when nerve roots become compressed or damaged from narrowing of the vertebral column or from a slipped disk. Symptoms can include tingling, numbness, or pain, which radiates to the buttocks legs and feet.Review Date:4/16/2013Reviewed By:C.

They play different attacking football with a lot of youngsters and that’s nice to see. “From that perspective, it’s good.

Columbus Crew draw English Premier League team Crystal Palace FC

The Columbus Crew hosted English Premier League team Crystal Palace F.C. in an international friendly at Crew Stadium Wednesday and a game with unlimited substitutions resulted in a 2-2 draw between the American and British sides.Forward Adam Bedell drew first blood for the Black and Gold on an arching assist by defender Eric Gehrig in the 15th minute, but the opposition was not deterred as Palace’s Glenn Murray equalized with a 36th minute strike.The final 10 minutes of the first half saw the visiting Eagles engage a tighter defensive stance of contesting for possession, likely inspired to battle after their forward evened the game for them.“From the start, they sat back a little bit. That’s just the way that they, that’s just their game plan,” Bedell said after the game, speaking to what the Premier League squad did differently from the Major League Soccer defenses the Crew face every week. “A good block of eight, good defending … MLS teams, when the game’s 0-0, you just play. You don’t see that, that block of eight very often so I think that was the big difference.”Another Crystal Palace goal by substitute midfielder Jake Gray in the 70th minute of play occurred following a scuffle in the box, during which Crew goalkeeper Matt Lampson pled his case for having been interfered with on the play. The goal stood to give the guests the 2-1 lead after they had been threatening in transition for the majority of the evening.One of the Crew’s three defensive halftime substitutions saw a homegrown player from Bexley, Ohio, in Ross Friedman get his first career action in a Black and Gold kit when he came in for fellow defender Chad Barson.Friedman, 22, had been playing for the USL-PRO affiliate Dayton Dutch Lions but got the call to suit up as a Crew reserve against a top-flight international team.“I think going out at Dayton and trying to do the little things right — not slacking in any way — you know, prepares me for situations like this,” Friedman said. “This opportunity proves to show we can get called at any point. Situations happen and you’ve got to be ready. So I felt happy with my preparation and I’m ready to build off of it.”Columbus notched an 80th minute goal, however, to tie the game once more.Crew center midfielder Agustin Viana delivered a lofting assist from 35 yards away and his attacking counterpart, Daniel Paladini, fought to contact the ball in midair for the equalizing header. The tie game endured through two minutes of second-half stoppage time.“Adam (Bedell) was fantastic. He had a great header and Danny (Paladini) made a nice run trying to get midfielders running into the box. I was pleased over all,” Crew coach Gregg Berhalter said.Berhalter, who played as a defender for Crystal Palace from 2001-02, added that “the defending could have been a bit better.”The game marked the first of three stops on Crystal Palace’s American tour before the Premier League season kicks off in August.The Crew are slated to resume MLS play when they travel to Foxboro, Mass., to take on the New England Revolution in a crucial Eastern Conference matchup Saturday.Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. read more

Mbappe certain that Neymar will stay

first_imgThere were a lot of rumours saying that Neymar can possibly leave PSG and come back to La Liga to join Real Madrid – but his teammate Kylian Mbappé believes that he will stay no matter what.The Brazilian star joined the French club before the season from Barcelona and he became the most expensive player in the football history – and Mbappé insisted that another transfer is just a “hot air”.The French youngster spoke about Neymar’s situation as he said, according to Sports Keeda:“It’s nothing but hot air.”Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“Neymar sends me messages, gives me the news. I wished him a good World Cup, but not to win it.”“Of course, I have the goal of winning the World Cup. It’s even a dream. If we progress well, we can achieve something.”“I’m not sure that Emery will leave, even if he is at the end of his contract.”“I don’t know if he talks to the club. We’ll see who will replace him if he leaves, but he is not leaving at the moment.”last_img read more

Ter Stegen thanks Iniesta for the special years

first_imgBarcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has thanked the departing Andres Iniesta for the “4 special years” they had together at the Nou CampIn his final game for his beloved boyhood club, a Philippe Coutinho strike ensured that Iniesta would leave Barcelona on a high with the club having broken Real Sociedad’s 38-year unbeaten record in La Liga earlier this season on their way to winning the league title for the 25th time in their history, as well as winning the Copa del Rey last month.In a 22-year playing career, the 34-year-old has also won both the World Cup and European championship for Spain and will likely turn to full focus to the national team for what will be very likely his final appearance at a major international tournament for his country.“4 special years playing alongside you.

Gracia geared up for tough Bournemouth test

first_imgAhead of their trip to Bournemouth on Wednesday, Watford boss Javi Gracia says his side needs no extra motivation to beat Eddie Howe’s side at the Vitality Stadium.Gracia saw his side lose 4-0 at home to Bournemouth in their first meeting in the Premier League in October.As they prepare to travel to Bournemouth on Wednesday, Gracia wants his side focused on the tactical and technical aspects of the game, and not on revenging their 4-0 defeat.“I don’t think my players need the motivation to do our best,” he told the club’s official website.“I know my players and I know in all the games without exception they give their best. They don’t need extra motivation to play against Bournemouth.”In the October clash between the two teams, Watford had a player sent off after Bournemouth took the lead.Joshua King then scored a brace after Christian Kabasele was shown red and the first half ended 3-0.Callum Wilson completed the scoring two minutes into the second half to make it a humiliating 4-0 home defeat for Javi Gracia’s side.What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“It was a very, very tough game for us,” Gracia said, recalling the events of the game.“After the sending off, it was difficult to play with ten players and losing 2-0. It was tough for us. I saw the game many times, not only the period against ten men.“I saw when we played with 11 and that was for around 30 minutes. In that moment, I think we conceded one goal and I think we didn’t play badly.“We could have done many things better but we kept a good level in that 30 minutes. After that it was a bad game, maybe I made some decisions, like playing Capoue as a center-back to see if able to have more options.“There were different situations, decisions like that. But I am sure it will be different. We know it will be demanding against a good team, but I am sure we compete in the same way as in other games, we have options.”last_img read more

Work of Jamaica Womens Political Caucus Lauded

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, December 8, 2017 – Kingston – Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Olivia Grange, has lauded the work of the Jamaica Women’s Political Caucus for advancing the cause of women in the political landscape.“I commend the Jamaica Women’s Political Caucus for giving Jamaica 25 years of unrivalled service to the cause of encouraging and facilitating the participation of women in representational politics at the highest level,” she said.Ms. Grange was speaking at the 25th anniversary awards luncheon of the Jamaica Women’s Political Caucus held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston on December 5.“Your non-partisan organisation has become a regional trendsetter and a brand in providing high-quality leadership training for aspiring female politicians.   The work of the Caucus over the years has contributed immensely to building awareness on the significance of having women strategically placed as pivotal to the decision-making process,” she said.The Minister noted, as well, that the Caucus also plays an important role in promoting a culture of participation.“Your work has served to challenge stereotypical norms of behaviour, structural barriers and standards of performance.   Through advocacy and intensive training, the Caucus has challenged and redefined the prerequisites for women’s entry into the field of representational politics,” Miss Grange added.The Minister noted that this has led to more women becoming involved in political leadership.   Meanwhile, Ms. Grange said while the country has “female political heavyweights” in local politics, a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) study in 2016 entitled ‘Where are the Women’ shows that only 20 per cent of the island’s Cabinet Ministers and Senators are female.“This is still below the 30 per cent target set in the National Policy for Gender Equality of 2011.   As a Minister and as Member of Parliament, I believe that it is important to reach this target to ensure that women are sitting at the top of political leadership, and so I want to encourage everyone here who has the energy to get involved and strive to get to the top,” she said.The Minister said this is important, as women bring a balanced perspective to developmental issues such as equal pay, domestic violence, other forms of gender-based violence, sexual harassment at the workplace, corruption, campaign financing, maternity laws, inheritance laws and matters impacting women.In the meantime, seven outstanding women were honoured for their role in advancing the cause of women, through their work in the Caucus.   They are Minister Grange; former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller; Jeanette Grant Woodham, Evelyn Smart, Hermione McKenzie, Marie Thompson and Merline Daley.Responding, Ms. Grange said she is very happy to have met the criteria to be selected for a special award.“I accept this award with humility as a servant of the people, and I wish the Caucus continued success,” she said.

The Bahamas Ranks High as a WellRegulated Jurisdiction

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, March 05, 2018 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon. K. Peter Turnquest said that in respect to regulations and compliance, The Bahamas continues to be a very well regulated jurisdiction and continues to be highly ranked in this regard.In its efforts to keep up with international best practices, the country has signed onto the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters and the Framework on Base Erosion Profit Shifting (BEPS), DPM Turnquest said at the International Business Finance Summit presented by the Bahamas Financial Services Board  and held at Baha Mar, March 1, 2018.“We have received significant positive feedback from these moves.  We look to further leveraging that and expanding our opportunities and attracting additional business to the destination.”He did note however, that The Bahamas has to do even better with the ease of doing business and it is a significant focus for the government from both a domestic and international perspective.“We are simplifying the ease of getting into business and into the jurisdiction; we are making the work permitting process easy and we are making the investment process easy.”The DPM said, “We are keying in on the ease of doing business.  We have a committee of independent private sector individuals who are tasked with identifying the bottlenecks in our system and coming up with the required administrative and legislative changes that are necessary to ensure that we are living up to our desire to be first world in terms of the services that we provide and responsive to our customers going forward.”He also told business leaders during the summit that the government is “deliberately intent” on utilising available technology to improve the services the government offers and the efficiency in which it serves its clients.“One of the things we are looking at is block chain technology and seeing how we can leverage that in the financial services industry in particular to make the whole process of on-boarding clients easy.“For instance, we are looking at the possibility of setting up a digital record block chain such that persons can do their Know Your Customers (KYC) documentation in their own countries; get it authenticated digitally and when they come to The Bahamas, it is just a matter of giving somebody a key in which they can log in and receive authenticated verification of all of the KYC and all of the due diligence requirements in seconds.  A process that can take six to eight months can be done in 15 minutes.”DPM Turnquest explained that the government has put together a task force to determine what is needed to make that idea a reality.  “We have had discussions with several providers of this kind of technology and we continue to make this a priority so we can get this kind of technology in place in the shortest period of time possible.”“The more efficient and responsive we are, the better our chances in this very competitive global world we are now faced with all of its complexities and challenges. We want to be market leaders; we do not want to be followers.”The DPM said feedback and input from financial services leaders and providers on the potential applications of the technology is necessary so that the government can make adjustments or amendments to make it easier for them to complete their transactions with clients or make their work easier in general.By: Llonella Gilbert (BIS)Photo Caption: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon.

Newspaper Publisher Acquires Worcester Magazine

first_img“It’s actually an appropriate title for a traditional newspaper to buy, because it reaches an audience that the traditional papers are losing, namely younger readers, as well as giving them some traction with advertisers they may not otherwise get,” said Kim Mac Leod, president of Regional Media Advisors, an M&A advisory company for the regional market. Looking forward, Charter said the possibility of converting Worcester to a glossy is “undetermined,” indicating that “many ideas are on the table.” One idea is to launch an annual glossy edition, he says. Alternative news weekly Worcester magazine has been acquired by newspaper publisher Holden Landmark Corp. The agreement is set to close before the end of the month.Terms of the deal were not disclosed.“From a market standpoint, connecting with a publication with 30-plus-year track record is a beautiful fit geographically for us,” Holden Landmark publisher Gareth Chater told FOLIO:. The company publishes five weekly newspapers in the greater Worcester, Massachusetts area—including its flagship Holden Landmark—as well as State Parent magazine.A newsprint tabloid distributed free at 500 locations around the city, Worcester magazine has a circulation of 34,000. “We couldn’t offer our advertisers penetration into the city [Worcester], and now we can,” Charter said. “We like the alternative city space. Given the decline of the metro dailies and the emergence of the Web, we think it has great potential.”last_img read more

2020 Nissan Rogue Sport brings more sleekness safety to Chicago

first_img Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: 43 Photos 0 Enlarge ImageThe headlights are the most obvious upgrade, but the new (optional) wheels look pretty great, too. Andrew Krok/Roadshow The Nissan Rogue Sport is more than just a slightly smaller Rogue, and to give it a bit more distinct spot in the lineup, it enters the 2020 model year with some solid enhancements.Nissan unveiled the 2020 Rogue Sport at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show on Thursday. Boasting improvements to its looks, as well as its complement of standard equipment, the SUV that lives between the Kicks and the big-boy Rogue is ready to pounce on a market that cannot get enough of the current crossover craze.The 2020 Rogue Sport’s exterior refresh is mild, but noticeable. The headlights are slightly more rectilinear than before, alluding to updates on other new Nissan models, like the Altima. There’s also a new hood, a new bumper and a tweaked version of Nissan’s family grille. LED daytime running lights come along for the ride, while a new set of taillights live out back. Two new colors — bright green and orange — are now available, too. The interior is the same as before.The biggest news has to be the improved availability of its safety suite. Nissan Safety Shield, the package that includes automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring and automatic high beams, is now standard. Formerly, it was only offered on SV and SL trims, but for 2020 it’ll be standard on even the base S trim. It also carries over certain 2019 enhancements, including the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
