It has been a privilege to work with Activate Group, Inc, in assessing our sales talent and capabilities. They bring in industry expertise and provide valuable insight to our organization. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with our coach Howard!
Activate Group, Inc. has been instrumental in helping our company. By using the tools such as Topgrading, we have hired key employees that have helped our company to turn around in growth mode. Through assessments and budgets created around our Gazelles one-page plan we now have a true blueprint for success.
As an entrepreneur, I must admit that I had not paid enough attention to hiring practices until the business was going through a rough patch. We reluctantly agreed to use Activate Group’s TopGrading selection tools and hired our first ‘A’ player shortly thereafter. What a huge difference! Not only did we find that a true ‘A’ can perform the work of 2 or 3 employees in the same capacity, but they also become a model and motivation for others to improve. Now that we are seeing the successful results, I would not ever think of hiring anyone without the use of these tools.
Activate Group, Inc. provided sales coaching services at my company. With our coach’s techniques and new approaches my sales team gained the change needed to improve sales in their territories. I also received valuable coaching and have been able to manage my reps’ sales pipelines more effectively and have been a better coach myself. I would recommend any company to utilize their services.
My coach is great when it comes to recognizing, adjusting and developing new sales strategies to fit our service and the current marketplace. I have been in outside sales for more than 22 years and my coach brought new ideas to help me deal with the everyday trials of selling a non-tangible service, mostly by phone. I would recommend him to any company that wants to grow their business from inside, with the talent they already have.
