Ingrid Maynard, Australia, The Sales Doctor, The Next 100 Days Podcast

Summary of the Podcast

  • Graham and Kevin welcomed Ingrid Maynard from Melbourne, Australia to discuss sales challenges.
  • Ingrid was excited to share her insights as The Sales Doctor.

Sales challenges in a difficult economy

  • Ingrid outlined the perfect storm facing Australian businesses – high targets amid tough markets and unprepared sales teams.
  • Customers face more scrutiny over discretionary spending as costs rise across the economy.

Benefits of bespoke sales programs

  • Ingrid’s programs are tailored to each organisation’s unique needs rather than off-the-shelf solutions.
  • She deeply analyses contexts through stakeholder interviews to design customised, behaviour-changing solutions achieving future goals.

Diagnosing organisational needs

  • Ingrid identifies key issues through research – unrealistic targets, order-taking mindsets, lack of growth roles.
  • Leaders now face conditions their teams never experienced, requiring new skills and mindsets to succeed.

The importance of an engaged leadership

  • Ingrid believes CEOs must value sales teams as value-drivers, not cost-centres.
  • With leadership commitment, resources follow to empower customised solutions addressing organisational needs.

Motivating salespeople with realistic targets

  • Unachievable targets demotivate and drive dysfunction, not performance.
  • Stretch targets 50% above realistic baselines encourage problem-solving toward goals, maintaining motivation in difficult markets.
