- “And we are right now in the time where we need to adapt quickly. We need to learn quickly, adapt quickly in iterations. So how do you organize as a sales leader? Your department, being it five people or 1700 people, the concept is the same. You want to have a daily habit, a weekly habit, and a monthly habit in your team. And that is what I call sales leadership.” (6:45-7:11)
- “And then operations, this is really where the magic happens because you know the first sales is done by the sales team, but the second is done by the operations team when you keep people, when you retain them, upsell and cross-sell them.” (13:54-14:07)
- “Leadership starts with the tough conversations, because every other conversation, everybody can have that.” (25:00-25:07)
