Some things never go out of style: collaboration, the importance of sales, and phone booths. Serial entrepreneur Ryan Leavitt, the Co-Founder of Pillar Booth, LearnCore and Catapult Chicago, says there’s one equation that is necessary for a business to succeed. Success = Collaboration + Accountability.
Ryan learned about the importance of building consensus and selling early in his career. He’s found that success comes when teams work together, which starts with a company’s leaders working together.
Here are my three big takeaways from the conversation:
1. Hire experts at your company; then enable and trust them to do their jobs.
2. Sales is a skill set that translates among every industry and job.
3. An employee’s drop in performance, without any other changes, such as the market, skill set, etc., is a sign that you need to ask questions and assess the situation.
