Productivity Series

Definition: What is productivity? “Value-add”.

Productivity is a measure of your value-add to what you do. If you do not add value to your work, you have no productivity. If you can double or triple what gets done, you are massively productive. How to increase Productivity? Productivity Tools like Time Management, Training, Seminars, Prioritizing, Life Work Balance and even Stress Management contribute to improve productivity.

We teach 21st century techniques for productive time & stress management and productive management and team development practices . Forget goal setting and start goal attaining.

Develop and implement systems that breed successes and ensure your team’s productivity. There is such a shortage today of true leadership and planning. ‘Adhoc’ leadership is an oxymoron.

Sales Productivity and Productive Sales Management:

Michael’s upcoming book, “Productivity: Mastering Sales Productivity” Teaches sales people and sales managers what they need to know to be more productive in this transformed world of selling. No one has the time to listen to sales people any more. They only want (and need) skilled advisors. Professionals who can cut through the mountains of data in a scant few minutes and help them make their buying decision. The cold call is not dead as most claim, it’s transformed into a ‘warm’ call with 5 minutes of searching via a smart phone. Most claim the buyer now has control but the reality is, the buyer has ALWAYS had control. Great sales people have always needed to provide what buyers need and want. It’s just so different today that new and improved skills are essential.
