Stop Measuring The Pizzas And The Cooks
Good news! You've become the owner of a pizzeria. Gone are the days of writing code, being a Scrum Master or deciding over the Product Backlog. Instead, you are now responsible for a small Italian-themed restaurant
From now on, your world revolves around anchovies, mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. But there's one thing you took with from your job as a Scrum Master; use empiricism to drive decisions. Instead of relying on assumptions, intuitions, and expectations, rely on data to improve how you do your work. So what are metrics you should track for your little shop?

One of Marketing's primary responsibilities is to generate leads for the Sales organization to turn into new business
"Incredible amounts of time, effort, and money are spent by Marketing to capture these leads including writing excellent content, running ad campaigns, exhibiting at conferences, being active on social media, etc. Each marketing qualified lead (MQL) is treasured by marketing because it is the fruit of all their hard work.

Does Being On Commission Make You Untrustworthy?
I read a discussion between some wickedly smart people. One person took a position that one could not be a 'Trusted Advisor,' and be on commission
"He later extended the argument to include being accountable for achieving a quota compromised the ability of the sales person to be trusted.

To be fair, there are people and organizations that are driven purely by self interest. They structure everything they do around maximizing the return they get, regardless the impact to the people they deal with, including customers..."

The Right Way To Approach Change With Your Sales Team
In today's world, change is constant in life and business
"How you and your sales team manage this flux will determine your bottom line - regardless of whether the change involves emphasizing a new product lineup, introducing new services, or adjusting your mix of customers.

Are You Listening?
Would you be surprised to learn that communication continues to be an issue in the workplace?
"Listen, involve, synergize at work. Then you will bury the old and create an entirely new winning culture which will unleash people's talents and create complementary teams where strengths are made productive and weakness are made irrelevant through the strengths of others... " - Stephen R. Covey

"Would you be surprised to learn that communication continues to be an issue in the workplace? That only 13% of U.S. workers strongly agree that their organization's leadership communicates effectively?

This may not be news as it's been an issue for years, but why is that? Are we choosing to NOT address the issue?..."

5 Knows You Should Know.
We all want to feel empowered and feel connected to our purpose, but it is probably one of the hardest things to figure out about ourselves
"The leaders I coach constantly inquire about how they can find their purpose. The best way I can help you begin the search is to start with strengths - at least, I can confirm that this is the roadmap that led to the clarity I needed to find my path and create a more meaningful life for myself.

I love to inspire people to become the best version of who they already are. We are all unique in our own way and all wired differently. My purpose is to ignite the spark within you to inspire you to achieve your goals. It took me 40 years to figure that out and put it into words, but I feel empowered to finally have the knowledge and grateful to live in my purpose..."
