first_imgPORTLAND, Ore. – Should Klay Thompson need to feel inspired and rejuvenated again, he might want to avoid jumping into the water this time.Thompson had benefited from cooling off in the Pacific Ocean during an off day last month in Los Angeles a day before Game 4 of the Warriors’ first-round series against the Clippers. Before the Warriors play the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 3 of the Western Conference on Saturday, though, Thompson might not want to swim here.“You want to go to the …last_img

Log in For a number of years, Rob and Fiona were content to live in a simple Maine cottage a stone’s throw from the water’s edge. In recent years, however, they had tried having a new house designed to accommodate their changing needs, but quickly got mired in results that were much larger and more expensive than what they wanted. After tiring of these unsuccessful ventures, they came to my firm seeking a compact, modern, extremely energy-efficient home that would blend into the tightly woven neighborhood where they planned to root themselves for the years to come.We set to work applying our studio’s motto—beautiful, sustainable, attainable—to the project. Our early meetings quickly centered on the meaning of cottage in the 21st century. We wondered if the term still defined the classic British buildings of Rob and Fiona’s youth, which so successfully fit between clusters of lavender and privet hedges, or if cottage had come to mean something bolder and simpler with less of the romantic touchstones of 19thcentury construction. We concluded that we needed to draw on each of these ideas, and that the house would need to be simple, tough, and practical, in keeping with the Maine life that Rob and Fiona love. Double-duty design. The home’s front (photo above) is simple and traditional in detail and scale to fit its setting, while its back rises dramatically to capture light and views. We thought that a house approximately 1800 sq. ft. in size would be able to meet their budget and allow for the quality of design and construction they desired.

How to Use The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever Need

first_imgI just released the second video in the launch of my new book, The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever Need. If you want to know what’s inside the book, this video is a quick walk through of the 9 attributes and the 8 skills. You can watch it on the preorder page at preorder.theonlysalesguide.com.If I could go back and change any part of this book, the one thing I would add would be a user’s guide for salespeople, and one for sales managers.To succeed in sales today, you need all the attributes and skills included in The Only Sales Guide. If you have a deficiency in any of the attributes or skills, that deficiency can cause your problems. Like initiative. Sales isn’t a passive endeavor where you can afford to be reactive and do well. Instead, you have to drive the action.If You SellIf you are responsible for selling, you should read the book from cover to cover, making notes on the attributes and skills that you believe you need to improve. Then you should go back over one or two chapters, spending a couple week working specifically on developing in those areas. Maybe you aren’t exercising the self-discipline you need in order to succeed at a higher level. Or perhaps you need to work on your skills when it comes to asking for and obtaining commitments (Closing is Chapter 11).You are responsible for your own growth and development. This book will help you turn in your best performance.If You Manage a Sales TeamIf you manage a sales team, there are couple ways you should use the book.First, you can read the book together, focusing on one attribute or skill each week, and doing the exercises at the end of each chapter and sharing your experiences. Including the two chapters that cap off each section of the book, that is 19 weeks of development (more than most salespeople ever receive in the way of training and development). The videos and the workbooks will make this easy.Second, you can use the book to coach each individual on your team in areas you believe they need to improve. It’s sometimes easier for us to see where and why someone else is struggling than it is to see these same things in ourselves. No book provides this kind of a lens on performance, and using it to create a coaching and individual development plan will help you help the individuals on your team.You should use the book to help each person on your team grow, develop, and turn in the best performance they are capable of producing.As you watch video 2 at preorder.theonlysalesguide.com, note with attributes or skills you might need to shore up. If you are leader, think about where the individuals on your team need help.I wrote this book so that you would have what you need to take action and improve your own skills as a individual contributor, or to help your team if you are a sales manager or sales leaders. It’s not enough to know what you need to do; what’s important is that you do it. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook! You need to make sales.
