It’s best to be flexible.
Every company has goals it is working towards. They’re generally about the bottom line, lead flow, revenue growth, target clients, product improvements, personnel… no organization wants to stagnate.

Everyone in the organization is affected by organizational changes, so everyone needs to be updated on progress. Target dates are set to promote a sense of urgency and make others aware of when changes will take place.

I love Quora. I spend at least a few minutes on the site each day answering questions when I feel I can make a solid contribution. Also, I ask questions when I feel a broader perspective is needed than the perspective I can get from my own network. Sometimes, I just read questions and answers from industry leaders. Anyway you slice it, getting plugged into Quora can help to expand your knowledge base, your influence and your network in measurable ways. Recently, I answered a few questions discussing what, if any particular traits, make a great salesperson. The Net-Results team thought they were interesting topics to contemplate, so read my answers and let us know you agree or disagree with what I came up with. (more…)
