Cover Story Jeffrey Gitomer

Keeping good salespeople is harder than finding them

Hiring a great salesperson is one thing. Keeping him or her on the team is another. Often the manager or boss is too busy scrutinizing and measuring the salesperson’s performance, and ignoring their own part of the partnership. The part necessary to support, build and keep a great team. What are you doing to keep your salespeople? Here’s a list of 24.5 elements to build and grow a stellar sales team: 1. Structure a fair compensation package that is commission based. The more they sell, the more they earn. People get into sales because it’s got the potential for great financial rewards. Create an attractive package. 2. Give them the tools to sell with. Invest in the best support tools money can buy. They help salespeople sell, and they’re a reflection of the quality of your business in the mind of the prospect. 3. Equip them with 21st century technology. Or they will die at the hands of the competitor who is equipped. Smartphone, tablet, laptop computer at a minimum. 4. Have the best company in the world. Someplace with a great reputation where they’re proud to work. 5. Have an inside team of people that does not fight with, or resent salespeople. Sales wars (battles between sales and production, administration and credit) end up killing the customer. 6. Be the best boss in the world. Have the same consistent positive attitude you expect of your people. 7. Have a manager who is a better salesperson than anyone on your team. Otherwise, the respect factor, and pull-the-woolover-the-eyes factor increases. 8. Reward sales with money. Nothing happens until a sale is made. Have a generous compensation package that rewards success. If they succeed, pay them well.

9. Acknowledge achievement. Have award certificates (not just for sales) to show employees they have achieved excellence or exceeded a goal. 10. Recognize in front of others. Have victory celebrations. Ring a big bell when a sale is made. Instill pride for sales. 11. Have incentives and contests to keep it competitive. Dangle the carrot, whet the appetite, get them to go for the brass ring. The bigger the prize, the bigger the effort. 12. Reward repeat business. If a customer reorders, it means they were satisfied with the way they were sold and served. Pay a larger incentive the second time. 13. Reward referrals. When one customer refers another customer, it’s the most profitable sale. Referrals are hard to get (earn). But once you do, it’s the easiest sale to make pay handsomely someone has earned it. 14. Reward business taken from others (accounts from the competition). Taking business away from the competition is a big event that should be celebrated, rewarded and dissected to see how to repeat it. 15. Reward testimonial letters received. Testimonial letters are the only proof you’ve got. Pay a big reward for the letters that overcome objections. 16. Have regular sales meetings. Air out the field or phone problems, let salespeople have a chance to discuss their challenges and successes. They will learn from the leader and each other. Have an agenda and follow it. 17. Have regular sales training. A weekly sales meeting should include 15 minutes of training. Weekly meetings, a quarterly 1-day training, and an annual 2-day retreat, are minimum standards for sales growth. 18. Have regular personal development training. Your team must grow personally in order to achieve sales growth. Train in attitude, goals, responsibility, listening, pride, communication and change growth elements fundamental for success. 19. Set realistic and achievable goals. Work on sales goals with the sales force. Get them to

agree that they’re realistic and achievable then get them to write a plan for their achievement. 20. Every six months ask your sales team what you need to do to help them make more sales. Get them to write a blind (no name) report about situations and needs. Act on them. 21. Have them print out sales reports every week by prospect status. Don’t track sales people by time (what they did on Tuesday). Track them by account. Look at the sales cycle and the follow-up activity. If you have laptops and contact management software (CRM), a sales report is a one button act. 22. Don’t talk trash behind their backs. Don’t grumble about their poor performance, help them or fire them. 23. Reprimand in private. No one likes (or deserves) to be ridiculed in front of others. The best way to reprimand is over a meal and have a game plan for improvement. 24. Encourage them. Banners, letters, posters, words and phrases of “you can do it” goes a long way towards getting it done.

24.5 Don’t let them run you. Tell them what you expect, and follow through to be sure it’s done. Salespeople have all the power you need to achieve your success if you harness it. This list is by no means complete, but it’s a solid foundation to keep your team at peak performance. To ensure the success of your sales team, measure performance two ways, theirs and yours. There is also a huge side-benefit; when you have a great, productive, high earning team, the word gets out. The “law of attraction” kicks in. Good salespeople will call and want to work for you. What a great dilemma to have. Jeffrey Gitomer is the author of twelve best-selling books including The Sales Bible, The Little Red Book of Selling, and The Little Gold Book of Yes! Attitude.

Aftermarket Dave Baiocchi

Departmentalization leads to Compartmentalization

It always amazes me how as dealers, we all tend to organize ourselves the same way. I suppose I really shouldn’t be amazed. In any industry, there are methods and processes that are proven to be efficient. These methods become “best practices” in the industry, and the effectiveness of the process should naturally draw most of the participants to mimic the most productive model. Financially the “best practices” in our industry call for the dealership to be separated into 5 or 6 distinct “profit centers” (or departments). We do this because the purpose, expectations, and market focus of each profit center is different. The range of sales revenue, gross profit, expenses, and manpower varies greatly between departments. Consequently, the goalsetting standards and metrics used to measure progress are equally diverse. Normally dealerships define these profit centers as follows: • New Equipment Sales • Used Equipment Sales • Rental Department • Parts Department • Service Department • Integrated Solutions (sometimes included with new sales – other times separated) There is nothing inherently wrong with this separation. In order to set attainable goals and grow all facets of our business, we must employ a segmented approach. This helps us to properly plan where our investments in people, assets, and inventory will provide the best return. When we hire team members for our departments, I think it’s a natural tendency for OHIO RACK employees to establish personal goals for success, We BUY & SELL that are in concert with Portable Stack Racks departmental goals and Flexible Packaging objectives.

to financial incentives that reward departmental achievement. I have observed that the most successful dealerships SHARE many of their goals with their rank-and-file employees. You have heard me say before that it’s impossible to hit a target that you never hang on the wall. Whether those targets are financial, operational, or behavioral, if you share these objectives, every team member will most likely view them through the prism of their role in their assigned department. All this focus on departments has a downside however that we routinely ignore. One of my favorite business axioms is that “Departmentalization leads to Compartmentalization”. As an example: If my role, my activities, and my rewards are predicated on the success of the RENTAL departments, I will naturally prioritize my efforts based on what is best for the RENTAL department. The emergence of this “silo” mentality is a common internal enemy in any multi-profit center organization. Naturally, we tend to look out for our own interests. Therefore, MY involvement in any particular issue may be mitigated or enhanced by the value that it represents to MY department. By default, my interest is to preserve profitability in MY silo. This danger is more insidious than it seems. Silos can operate on more than one level. Not only do we accommodate departmental silos, but we can also erect branch-based silos. Territorial disputes, inventory allocations, and training support are all areas where our efforts are affected by branch silo concerns. Management may view silo battles, simply as dedicated employees paying attention to the details. We want our employees to be engaged. We want them to watch out for the bottom line. We want them to care about performance. But have we considered at all, how the CUSTOMER is viewing our silo-centric activity? The glaring gap in our customer experience effort may be grounded in our inability (or unwillingness) to defeat the silo mentality. Through all of this noise, one thing remains clear:

Aftermarket continued

The customer couldn’t care less about our departments! Customers are not interested in what department is responsible for crafting the solution to their problem. This shouldn’t be a surprise…... customers care about THEMSELVES. • Customers care about the part that was ordered next day air, actually showing up the next day, AND BEING INSTALLED the next day. • Customers care that we sent the right size forks or the right attachment on the rental unit. • Customers care about response time – especially when they have trucks to unload today. • Customers care about quality control, PM completion, and parts availability. • Customer care about us “getting it”, and about us understanding their urgency. It’s not their job to care about US. It’s our job to care about THEM. They want our relationship with them to be efficient, timely, intuitive, and productive. They want us to anticipate their needs and make their material handling issues almost invisible. None of this can really happen if we are not dedicated to deconstructing silos. If we don’t take silos seriously, we end up with customer communications that sound like: • I told the parts department that we needed to order it NDA. • The service department was supposed to check the rental before it left. • Sales were supposed to contact you about the warranty coverage on that repair.

• It’s not my fault. • That’s not my job. We don’t want to think that we would ever allow a customer experience that includes these responses. The departmental blame game, however, is usually employed as a “last-ditch effort” by a customer-facing employee, attempting to explain the failure. Its roots are fed by the silos, but there are both policy and communication tools that can create an environment where the customer is shielded from ever being subject to our silo-based excuse-making. In my next column (Sept 2021), I will be recommending some operational and policy measures that put critical internal communications and processes in focus. I will also outline suggested customer contact protocols when delays emerge, and commitments cannot be kept. In the October issue, I will challenge dealers to rethink their systems of departmental incentives and rewards. We cannot expect to deconstruct silos if the motivation behind building them remains in place! We mix our message when we say that customer satisfaction is our number one priority, then base our entire reward system solely on profitability. Although we tend to universally use a system that rewards RESULTS (sales, profits, and expenses), it may be prudent to investigate a system that rewards BEHAVIORS. My experience has been that maintaining accountability on adherence to prescribed behaviors produces sustainable results. This doesn’t mean that your managers are in lockstep and aren’t empowered to make their own decisions. What it does mean however is that the framework and model for executing everyday processes is adjudicated by a set of written standards. Following those standards is defined as “proper behavior”. In a post-pandemic economy, will be faced with both pitfalls and opportunities. As we return to normal, we have the perfect chance to realign our priorities and demolish the barriers that so often keep us from meeting our CX objectives.

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

Forks in the road Hope you noticed I used a plural for the word “Forks”. Did it on purpose because every company out there will have many decision points to consider regarding post-pandemic activity, many of them uncomfortable to discuss but in some shape or form necessary to deal with. And when you add the “forks” into the mix it seems managements time will be increasing preparing plans for ‘22 and beyond using gameplans that are drastically opposed to one another. Almost every line item on your balance sheet and income statement will be in play, with your goal to ensure adequate cash flow to cover debt service as well as operating expenses. Easier said than done under current circumstances because of all of the variables (forks) that need to be considered. And not only do you need to dive deep into your financial needs but also have to take into consideration your customer needs for the periods under consideration, because it does not make much sense to devise a game plan for 2022 and 2023 only to find that customer needs are materially different from what you plan to offer. You are probably wondering what forks we are talking about. The inflation/deflation possibilities are the choices because you will need to decide which horse you decide to ride but also plan for both. Read on to see why. If you guess right good for you. If you guess wrong, you have trouble. But why guess when you can be proactive getting in front of customers to see how you can help going forward. Being that most of your customers deal with large inventory investments they may need to become more efficient or cut costs to assist with debt service issues. If I had to guess a good number of customers are worried about customers coming back online and their ability to service those customers. Then they need to think about getting paid, interest rates, and wages along with cost inflation or potential deflation if they need to liquidate inventory. You have been hearing mostly about inflation fears for the balance of the year and probably into next year. Probably true and probably short-term

except for the “sticky” inflation that is tough to reverse, such as wages. But after much reading and research, it is just as likely that deflation could precede inflation by about 15 quarters or more because of debt levels causing above-average debt service demands. The technology could also produce new products for a lower cost. In short, there is a possibility customers may have to liquidate excess inventory to generate cash to pay vendors and bankers and at the same time find lower-cost products coming online to replace what they sell. History tells us that debt bubbles (as we are in now) produce inflation increases as a lagging indicator because debt issues slow growth and cause prices to decrease because companies have to reduce prices to meet debt service needs. The lag is about 15 quarters or four years. So here is one of the forks you need to deal with. Are you planning for an extensive high inflationary period starting in 2022 and what that would mean in terms of employee needs, inventory needs, marketing, and sales upgrades as well as any related costs to execute such a program? Or will you plan based on the other side of the coin with deflation more prevalent because of businesses dealing with debt issues producing a need to unload inventory and assets as well as costs to produce positive cash flow? If a majority of your customers find themselves in this debt bubble scenario dealers could wind up facing lower revenues, excess inventories to finance, and bank covenants that are going to be hard to meet. Had you picked the low inflation plan and assume customers will be in a similar situation most of your offerings to major customers would be to make them more efficient, help them sell off used material handling equipment, and assist on cost reduction where you can. When you stop to think about it there are so many financial scenarios to consider regarding 22 and 23 that you should probably consider quarterly plans for both situations; higher than normal inflation levels for some time to come; and another pushing out the higher inflation out four years taking into account cash flow and debt service


Bottom Line continued

issues, customer bankruptcies, excess inventory levels, AR collection problems, and lower rental activity to name a few concerns. Some folks are suggesting we head back to a ZERO-BASED budgeting approach as a middleof-the-road approach to start with. Not a bad idea and with the gig society out there the ability to cut payroll costs and at the same time pick up some expertise to assist with the budget process is there for the taking. In the end for every fork, you decide to go down there will be other forks to consider before we get back to normal, whatever that may be. A conservative approach seems to be more riskaverse. But if you have another plan on your shelf to apply to a more robust inflation cycle you can operate with lower risk until the time comes to change the game direction. All things considered, talking to your customers should be #1 on your list before making any final decisions. Garry Bartecki is a CPA MBA with GB Financial Services LLC.

Floor level lift tables can be loaded by a hand pallet truck

Seegrid Corporation has announced the availability of the Seegrid Palion ™ Tow Tractor Series 8. This upgraded version of the company’s industryleading automated tow tractor features enhanced Smart Path technology, increasing the robotic fleet’s ability to comprehend and make decisions while safely and reliably moving material in dynamic, high-traffic facilities.

Loads can be accessed from all four sides of the platform making the lift well suited for palletizing operations. Six standard models are available and can be furnished in 2,000, 4,000, or 6,000 lb. capacities with either a 44” x 48” or 50” x 48” platform.

Invert entire Pallet loads quickly and safely The PalletPal Inverter from Southworth inverts fully loaded pallets in a matter of seconds. It is a faster, safer, and easier alternative to manual restacking which requires workers to bend, reach, stretch and lift heavy loads. Pallet inversion can be necessary for several reasons including as part of a shipping and receiving process; swapping from in-house to shipping pallets or slipsheets; or dealing with damage to pallets or goods, broken boards or boxes/bags hit by forks. PalletPal Inverters are also commonly used in food, pharmaceutical, and chemical processing applications to turn inventory for freshness or to prevent mixtures from separating or settling. www.southworthproducts.com

AIT has been rebuilding transmissions for over 35 years. Our shop equipment includes a number of machines and their tooling for a variety of processes. Our tools include presses and cleaning tanks. We realized that we have all of the necessary facilities to produce remanufactured steer axles in-house. The only exception is the chrome plating needed for some cylinders. That is subcontracted locally. Cores have been purchased and exchanges for popular styles are on the shelf. Our prices are competitive. Our quality is what you expect from American Industrial Transmission.
