Daniel Tardy: License To Sell

EntreLeadership: Not your typical Tuesday

Posted in EntreLeadership by elephanthunters on April 27, 2010

Fishing Trip (We have to do it for the sales metaphors to work)

Brian Williams, Creative Director for Dave Ramsey getting 'creative'

The day started before dawn for those of us who decided to journey out into the deep blue sea in pursuit of some big fish…or at least some big fishing stories.  We have a running competition from event to event between Dave, myself and a few other guys on the team on who’s boat brings in the most fish.  I didn’t win this year, but I did beat Dave for the first time (and it’s a great feeling).

The weather was perfect as we trolled out of the harbor, and the company was great.  This is always a fun time to really get to know some of our attendees on a more personal level since there are just a few of us in each boat.  We landed a few Mahi-Mahi and the crew was kind enough to fillet them for us on the boat so we can cook ’em up for dinner.

Today’s Lessons:

Dave is teaching some of our most powerful lessons this afternoon:

  • Building Unity and Loyalty: Train yourself to be deadly consistent so your team knows what to expect.  Never cut pay when performance is there. Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No’.  People will allow themselves to be led by someone who treats them with dignity.
  • Compensation: If the leaders are only in it for the money, compensation will have a lot of ceilings….

Well, there’s a whole lot more but I gotta run help out with a Q&A Panel…

Stay Tuned.

    Congrats on beating Dave’s boat. They really showed us up in Cancun last fall. Enjoy your Dinner!

      Thanks Monte! We’ll be feasting like kings tonight! Wish you were here. How have things been with implementing EntreLeadership principles in your business over the past few months?

    Daniel,
    Man, wish Susy and I were there. Brings back great memories of a wonderful Entreleadership in Cancun. Things are looking up and we’re planning on making another EntreLeadership visit in a few years with Monroe Family Builders.
    Love looking at the vids.

      Hey Lenny,

      Glad to here about the founding of Monroe Family Builders! I thought of you when we were fishing today. That was a fun day when we went out in Cancun.
