Description

This episode of the Live Better Seller Better Podcast features Stephanie Taiwo, Manager in UKI SMB Sales for Remote. The reality is, one bad manager can completely destroy a team. Many companies focus on investing in training their salespeople and getting them as many tools as possible. However, they do not invest in developing those in leadership roles.

Stephanie dives deep into the skills, attributes, and challenges that all come with being in a managerial or leadership role. She talks about identifying if you're the right fit for the job and how company execs can, in turn, help managers solidify their roles as team leaders.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • How do I know if management is the right fit for me
  • Influencing your team to do the things they need to do
  • What company leadership should be doing to help managers get better
  • Stress management for managers

 

QUOTES

Stephanie on leadership being a skill: "Some of the things you must start off with is honest self-reflection. Get to know your personality type. Get to know how introverted or extroverted you are. What are your intrinsic motivators in life and what are your values? It must tie back to that."

Stephanie on enabling your team to do their best work: "This is a very common mistake to be this micro-manager. To even do the work for them, I see that so often when you just start like, 'Hey, you know what, I'll take this fall for you. I'll handle it and you can listen back and you'll know how to do it.' That's the worst thing you can do."

When execs are not spending as much time being present: "They need to take it a lot more seriously because the cost of attrition is way more detrimental than just keeping on somebody who you just get along with or you don't really have the time to mentor or coach. At the very least, hire a leadership coach for your first-time managers."
