I liked how sessions were meticulously prepared and delivered., the coaching and insights level, the active listening and open minded approach. Plus of course the immediate implementation of the tools and concepts.

First, I learnt how to better organize my workday thanks to practical productivity and time management tools. I can manage myself better to last and focus on my overarching missions. The framework leveraged to define y strategy and my main initiatives allowed me to really take on my new CSO role and to embrace the challenges that go along with it..

Thanks to the coaching, I implemented an ambitious, yet realistic sales strategy. Realistic on the one hand since it relies on an unbiased analysis of sales territory potential based on account scoring, and what we want and what we can sell to them. Ambitious on the other hand since it includes a new strategic account management process and critical objectives that require a cross fonctionnal collaboration with other departments. In a nutshell, a roadmap that depicts my leadership role and the expected impact.
