This article states that in the current age, teamwork on a professional level has never been more important, and it is only continuing to become more so. The work produced in a team environment has been proven to be of a higher standard than that of an individual, time and time again. This means that it is critical for organisations to understand what underlies successful team work.

Here we look at the importance of face to face, human relationships and their effect on teamwork as well as the role of technology and communication via technology when it comes to working as part of team.

Be First In Line For Vendor Leads

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Every partner wants to be on the receiving end of leads from their vendors. What’s more vendors often promise leads as rewards for certain partner behaviour such as training, certification and marketing activity. Partners invest their time, money and resources into a vendor and want to be rewarded accordingly.

It would seem that it is not as simple as "If you do this, I will give you that" when it comes to lead distribution. Greg Furlong from CRN looks at the key behaviours and attributes that a partner needs to possess and exhibit in order to find themselves being assigned leads from their vendors.

Making The Most Of Your Mistakes

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Every partner experiences customer complaints at one point or another. Adding to this issue in today’s world is that customers now have more opportunity and more platforms upon which they can discuss and highlight their dissatisfaction.

How To Sell To Top Execs - In 6 Easy Steps

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Common wisdom in sales dictates that the higher up the ladder you can go, the more return you’ll see on your investment. But the boardroom door only opens to those with a handle on executive etiquette, and insight into the mindset beneath it.

In this post Geoffrey James reveals the strategy (in six steps) best calculated to serve as a master key to successful C-level access. At its simplest, the strategy is no different to any other sales strategy: know your target market, how they think, what they want, and where their hot buttons are located. The part that needs most careful preparation is in providing what the executive wants and expects for the organisation or section he heads, and what he wants to hear from the perspective of his own personal, unstated agenda. Unless a salesman can successfully navigate both challenges at once, he will quickly be reacquainted with the door he entered by.
