What really stops your sales team from picking up the phone and contacting potential clients?
THE MOMENTUM PIPELINE PROGRAM
A focused, timeboxed plan to ditch the $45k consulting bill, wake up your team and get out of a rut, and triple your sales activities in 3 sprints.
If you are a top sales leader managing a team of 4+, this is your chance to say goodbye to those sluggish days when you can see your team members dragging their feet, doing unnecessary work, and making zero progress.
I get it.
You are a top salesperson, you are great at closing deals and creative in negotiations. Whenever you are at the table, you are seen as the subject matter expert or authority in that field. You come on board, build a pipeline from scratch and can run with it. All positives. Now you have your own team and it feels really good, except there is a problem.
Your team is not doing what they are supposed to be doing.
How do you actually get the best out of your team without constantly riding them for results?
It is not that they don’t know what they need to do, rather they are just not doing it and it’s becoming frustrating.
In one-on-ones or group conversation, they tell you what they haven’t been doing and reasons as to why it is not possible for them to do what they should be. They list all the problems you already know.
You have worked your way up, you have hustled, fought, done anything and everything to get yourself to this position. It seems your team wants to take it easy.
The problem is simple…
You have been focusing on the wrong approach to get them out of stagnation.
You have been told that, as a leader, you need to inspire them, motivate them, so they get on that call and book a meeting with their top client, or they plan their accounts and do their research before meeting every single client.
But it’s not true, it has nothing to do with your motivational speech. You don’t need to be Obama to have an action-taking sales team.
I’m here to flip everything you have learnt about leadership and running a team of sales people … Get you focused on 4 specific tasks to bump those activity numbers.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Agile doesn't work with our product.
Why is it so cheap?
It’s my mission to make something that is working, following the latest trends in sales management and accessible to everyone.
I’VE TRIED EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN - WHY DO YOU THINK IT WILL WORK?
As a leader, when we realise something is not working we are responsible for finding a way to get the outcome we want. Until we get the results, we try every possibility there is. This is the simple principle of effectiveness. Our track record, backed by numbers that implementing Agile in your ways of working will move the needle on the metrics to hit your sales targets.
Agile won't work in sales.
Sales transformation and acceleration is not a new concept. Consulting firms have a specialised team that would join a firm to turn around their sales strategy, uplift their sales capability and enhance their sales operations. And as part of these consulting firms, that has been my job for years – to use Agile to transform sales business units.
What can be done in 3 sprints?
3 sprints is about 1.5 months. To gain a new habit takes 21 cycles of repeat and we need to hear it 7 times. 3 cycles is sufficient to know and make a decision whether the method is able to move the needle on your numbers. 3 sprints won’t change the DNA of your team but it definitely is sufficient for you and your team to see some changes and get the mechanics in place.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AGILE SALES TRANSFORMATION AND TRADITIONAL SALES TRANSFORMATION?
The 2 keys elements:
- Customer-centric approach in designing the pipeline, sales processes and your team’s activities.
- Team collaboration to fast-track opportunities in the pipeline.
Unlike traditional sales transformation where you have solo-flyer (maverick) sales agents. Being a maverick to get a solution across the line isn’t working – it’s not enough. The complexity of solutions have changed.
In the past we were selling a phone – would you like this, yes or no and you sell it. Now there’s a complex combination of the sales process so the type and nature of solutions have changed. Solution = product. In technology we’re selling solutions to problems or solutions to a need. The solution for requirements is more elaborate… it’s no longer a single product or single item.
WE’RE NOT BUILDING SOFTWARE - WE’RE NOT EVEN SELLING SOFTWARE...
Absolutely! Look at our examples in recruitment firm and our own business!
