Referring to the most popular article he’s ever published, Mike offers nine compelling benefits (for both the salesperson and the manager) resulting from having sellers write and present their plans, and he also outlines a simple template you can adapt and use.
RESOURCES TO HELP WITH BUSINESS PLANS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:
