Jack Daly stands above all others. His energy is matched only by his genius and understanding about what makes the best sales organizations. It’s not commission strategies, it’s not about glossy sales materials; it is about people. Jack understands better than most that if you look out for your people and insist that they look out for your customers, the result is unprecedented growth. Winning teams result from strong cultures and leadership driven systems and processes. In the world of sales Jack Daly knows how to lead and win. He teaches you what you need to know, how to remember it, and how to practice it every single day.


SALES: The reality of sales is people do not want to be sold. I’ve never met anyone who enjoys having someone try to sell them something. So my first directive to salespeople when it comes to selling strategies is to quit selling. It doesn’t work. Just stop. Today, a sales person must work to build trusting relationships to win new customers and grow the ones you already have.

SALES MANAGEMENT: A sales manager’s job is not to grow sales. It’s to grow salespeople in quantity and quality. If you do that, they in turn will grow your sales. There are three components of a strong training program for salespeople. The first is “hands-on coaching.” The second is “role practice.” The third we’ll call “The Success Guide.” 

CORPORATE CULTURE: Whether it’s the Super Bowl or World Series, when the winning team celebrates in the locker room, the players often say the same thing: “What made the difference for us is we’re a family. You want people who don’t stay in their silos but instead look for the greater good of the organization and the customer. That’s when the magic happens.
