When recruiting people do you look for skills or potential? Talent is something that needs to be honed and continually developed and skills can always be learnt and improved. In an ever changing world organisations need people who can be flexible, continually learn and are able to take new ideas forward quickly. In short attracting people with a growth mindset and therefore learning potential will ensure your organisation is future fit. But even that’s not enough, you need to stand out against other companies as the place to work, a place where people will not only grow but be happy too.
“Great vision without great people is irrelevant.”- Jim Collins, Good to Great

Sales Managers get pulled in many different directions. Some respond by aligning themselves with upper management. Others take on the role of the sellers' champion.
