As a business transformation keynote speaker, I often speak to organizations on how to achieve peak performance. Last week I was delivering a presentation to a sales division of a very successful multinational conglomerate when someone asked, “How do we really become a great sales team?”
I’m holding a live hand grenade — yes, in my hand. I can’t remember if it’s “thumb clip, pull pin” or “pull pin, thumb clip”. I’m an 18-year-old kid going through Marine Corps bootcamp, and I’m frozen with fear.
