I’m not sure what to do…. I was in a meeting with a VP (HR) and other managers when they (VP) asked me to pull something up. I explained that template had not previously been discussed and proceeded to ask me in front of other managers if I “was on crack.” I feel conflicted and uncomfortable with how to address this. I felt humiliated.

What are your tips/tricks/strategies and tools for long range planning/case management? I have a good handle on daily planning and even weekly goals. But beyond a week gets a bit unwieldy for me. I feel like I go from week to week putting out one fire after another. We do monthly case meetings, but that seems to always focus on the next action items. Do you use a calendar? A list? Some sort of to app? If I walked into your office now and asked for updates on your cases, what would you look at?

I recently started at a new firm. I'm a female third year. An older male partner treats me like his LA and has me print things for him when he has a printer on his own desk. He makes me figure out setting hearings when he has his own VERY qualified LA. He makes me do a lot of LA work and it's quite demeaning. I've also even had an associate have me spend hours making his own hearing binder for a case I'm not even on. I get having to do grunt work at times, but I'm getting fed up with this. Tips?

There is no trick to sell, either you can sell or not. The only trick is use your ears and identify key pieces and use them wisely in the conversation. Selling is a conversation properly led to a Goal.

Commission plan discussion:
I was promoted to Director of Sales and am tasked with revamping our sales commission plans

We are in a high margin industry, the majority of the team’s sales are transactional, so they are quick closes, and they have a base around 60k

Current plan is: 3, 5, 6, and 8% of revenue depending on different factors

I am thinking of streamlining to make everything 10%. (5% paid upfront when they land the sale, 5% paid once invoiced).

Thoughts? Things to consider?
