You are a hotshot sales exec. who exceeds his quota every year and get the variable comp. and the glory for your wins. Do you honestly heart-of-heart need to thank anyone for your success OR is the glory yours & yours only? Your job is on the line every year / and winning business doesn’t get easier every year. The others don’t get an iota of the pressures & challenges you face on a daily basis.
Or hold on. Isnt Sales a Team game? Just like a fighter pilot needs Air Traffic Controller & Aircraft Engineer (the guy who checked his parachute & aircraft engine) to be r-e-a-l-l-y effective – shouldn’t you be needing Sales Enablers – Ops/Marketing/Pre-sales to be effective?
