@Grant: I don't think the complaints or bad reactions or questioning only came from "the shoe-wear-ers". Regardless, good luck with your project!

David, that is true. This video has been created as part of a project all of you will know more about later. The idea was to rant at those that are still making excuses and it should not offend anyone that is doing what they should do. "if the shoe fits". The responses to this has been amazing, from people thinking it is terrible to people calling and saying thanks for the wake up call. I will give you a hint, the last sentence gives a clue as to why this video was created.

I read somewhere on ADM, from Grant himself, that a dealer group asked him to make this video for them specifically.

Tom, by the way, I drank your martini. Pretty good! :)

I agree the video has value, and I'm thankful for that and for this discussion. I just don't think it has value at a sales meeting with salespeople. Grant's Huffington Post article doesn't present it as a management thought-provoking video, it's a video presented as a way to open a sales meeting--which to means salespeople, to me, anyway. I like this discussion very much, but the approach . . . family stuff is off limits, to me. Kinda' like the old Mob, whatever the issue, "don't 'hit' the family" . . .

Hmmm, it occurs to me the sales staff is a reflection of management. So if this video has any value, it must be handed to the top and trickle on down (shades of Ronald Reagon... oops, sorry). I think the real issue presented in this conversation is apathy and excuses, rather than challenging oneself to find energy, solutions and alternatives. I think this video has no place in a staff meeting, but has real value as a personal "wake-up call". Anyway, I've loved the conversation and now ... where did I put that martini glass?

I've always been a big GC fan, But that said I think the focus is all misguided here. Poor salespeople didn't just wake up that way today. It's a combination of unmotivated management, direction and coaching.

I am from the camp that direction, positive mentoring & coaching by example show your staff the way to ongoing success. I would rather have frank one on one's with my staff privately than to humiliate them openly and negatively. Just one man's opinion.

I LOVE THIS!!!!! This would p.. me off if I was a dealer. But this is how I feel in some dealers I consult to. This is how I motivate myself to help the dealer do better! Just never "call the dealer's baby ugly"
