JOHN: REASON FOR LEAVING HIS MANAGER JOB
“When I was in a meeting one time with all the second-line managers, third-line managers, and even the top VPs, they never talked about what's going on with the sales reps, like how do we make them more productive? What are the issues they're facing? Who's the competition? How do we get better?”
“All they were doing was talking about these bureaucratic, inside-the-company wall-type things and I thought, I don't want to grow up to be like these guys. I don't admire any of the things that they're talking about. That's not what I want to do. And if I stay here longer, I'm gonna grow up and be just like them, so I gotta get out of here.”
