Bad Apple, Spoiled Bunch

bad apple

It’s true: a bad apple can indeed spoil the whole bunch…or at least severely impair said bunch.

As I’ve written in the past, I believe that poor leadership can resonate throughout an organization…and the negative domino affect can be very painful. When sales leaders exhibit poor leadership, that damage can be manifested twofold: clients could seek to end their relationship with your organization, and your sales people’s performance (and confidence) could suffer as well.

In a recent article titled “Hire Slow but Fire Fast”, Greg Alexander provided a compelling infographic to demonstrate the financial impact of poor sales leadership.

The moral of the story? Do your due diligence BEFORE you hire a potential sales leadership liability.
