I help develop world-class sales leaders so they can develop world-class sales teams. Every year a lower % of salespeople hit their goal, forecast accuracy goes down, and the tenure of the average VP of Sales gets shorter (less than 2 years now). How you lead your team is your most defensible competitive advantage and I help sales leaders leverage the 4 levers that lead to predictable, sustainable success at Xvoyant.
