What do you do on Monday to get your week set up? I feel like I spend so much time helping my team get their pipelines in shape for the week / setting up a plan.

I typically use Monday to reply to all the emails from the weekend and to start up all my email touches for prospects in cadence - the forced personalization helps get the mind going.

Your team should be doing as they go and cleaning up Friday. Ready to go by Monday morning for ten minute calls
