If you Google the definition of the word 'Focus' you get the following:
- the center of interest or activity.
- the state or quality of having or producing a clear visual definition.
- adapting to the prevailing level of light and becoming able to see clearly.
Leaders and Managers often use the word 'focus' as a pseudo form of motivation to magically help their teams suddenly see the light and begin producing results. In reality, the 'focus' needs to be provided by the leaders and managers so that the team can clearly see the end goal and decide how they are going to get there. If the senior team has not provided a clear focus on goals, then it is very difficult for the team to deliver results.
In short, stop asking your team to focus, instead communicate a clear path to goals.
Here are a few tactics to create clarity on goals, thereby increasing focus on sales goals:
