Loading... Be Patient!


This may generate some sparks, but; it is the way I see it and the way I teach it and the way I do it in the real-world. 
When do you Fire a Sales Person?
Answer: You fire a Sales Person at that Point when you realize they are Never-Ever going to make it. 
Here are four “E’s” in Zieglerism…
E = Evaluate
E = Educate
E = Elevate
E = Exterminate
You must measure their skill and attitude first, then train and educate, THEN, you must make an effort to elevate – bring them to a higher level of performance.
If that Sales person is incapable or unwilling to do what they have been trained, then it is not a difficult decision. YOU cannot remain employed here. EXTERMINATE.
We are a “Performance Oriented Organization”
Performance based Pay Plans
Performance based Promotions
Performance based continued employment
We are Not a Safe-House for Under-Achievers
How do you fire a Sales Person?
After counseling and coaching, training, and one-on-one evaluations…
Fire that person the moment you realize they’re incapable.
If a Sales Person is insubordinate or just Flat-Out refuses to do the dealership Processes or Disrespects Management, then FIRE them with no amount of dignity. 
Launch Them with a bad reference.

NOT sure Brian Bennington, either I have less patience with idiots, or there are now more idiots to deal with....

Hey "Alpha Dawg,"  Do you find that the older you get, the less patience you have with idiots?
