Think about the most successful sporting teams you know.

  • The All Blacks

  • Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls

  • St George rugby league team of the 50s and 60s

  • America’s Olympic basketball ‘Dream Team’

  • Man United

  • Wayne Gretzky’s Edmonton Oliers

What do they have in common?

The management of great sports teams go about building their teams in a very specific way. They know the positions they need to fill. They look for the people who are exceptional athletes and experts in their field. They look for people who are talented, yet coachable, and who will always continue learning. They build a culture of excellence. And when you combine talent and culture with great coaching, focus and leadership, you win championships

As Michael Jordan once said, “great players win games, but it takes a great team to win championships”

Like great sports teams, great sales teams don’t just happen by accident. Sales leaders who build successful sales teams approach the task in the same way as great sports team managers.

A successful sales team means getting the right people on your team, providing them with the professional development, tools and resources they need, encouraging respect and collaboration and developing a winning culture.

In our Sales Accelerator Breakfast on 10th June, we bring together four experts in team and leadership development to share with you how they have built successful teams across a diverse range of businesses and across a wide range of cultures.
