The job of a top sales manager is a lot like old-school video gaming. The more you succeed, the deeper you get into the game, the harder the challenges get thrown your way. And the same is true for sustaining the revenue growth of a large company.

When it comes to sales reps, you could say there are two kinds of employees - hunters and farmers. Hunters live to uncover and seize new opportunities while farmers are better suited to up selling and cross selling to an existing client base. While both are invaluable to a company, when it comes to surviving in lean times, the hunters are being hunted more than ever because of their ability to create new opportunities and see them through to profitability.

We typically like to educate ourselves not only by our experiences on the job, but also with a great reading that we like to share amongst each other during our month end meetings. We have mainly focused on books that pertain to our business which is sales, but in this instance I wanted to focus on something that was more motivating rather than educational. This past month I read a book called Motivating Employees written by Anne Bruce and James S. Pepitone.

A lot of things tend to pop up at this time of year - the holidays, the end of a year, the start of a new one, Dick Clark is pulled out of storage and dusted off, and everyone and anyone puts together a 'Top 10 List.' Treeline is no exception to the rule. This year has been a crazy one and I am sure that plenty of us are glad to see it come to an end. But through it all, there were plenty of lessons to be learned. Here is a list of the Top 10 Lessons Learned in 2009.

Here at Treeline, we have a best practice where we present 'book reports' to the rest of the team at our monthly meetings. The books we read can be about anything as long as they add value to our business in some way. We have read books written by leaders in their industries, motivational speakers and spiritual guides. This past month I read a book written by an educator named Hal Urban, who wrote a book for his 3 sons called Life's Greatest Lessons: 20 Things That Matter.

Forty years ago, my grandfather worked for Abbott Laboratories as one of New England's Top Pharmaceutical Sales Professionals. Although I never personally knew my grandfather (he died when I was just a baby) his memory was kept alive by the many stories told about his unforgettable character. The stories painted a picture of a man "that could and would talk to anyone," "a gifted influencer", "a keen listener", and "a man whose charisma walked through the door before he did". The consistent theme in these descriptions was that my grandfather was incredibly likable and had the ability to make an impact when he was in front of people. Many said, "the man was born to sell."
