Jeff Koser has over 30 years of sales leadership and is a demonstrated thought leader in the space. Jeff is the author of the award-winning book, Selling to Zebras: How to Close 90% of the Business You Pursue Faster, More Easily, and More Profitably.
What the podcast will teach you:
- How Jeff and his team took a company initially starting out in the US with no sales and “minus two customers” and built it up to an “overnight success” after 20 years
- How Zebrafi came about and how the company targets customers between $5-20 million who want to improve their sales
- How Jeff and the team at Zebrafi navigated some of their challenges while scaling, including bringing in new team members during the period of growth
- Why one of the key skills Jeff had to learn to develop as a leader was his patience, and how his company’s culture was a critical ingredient in this effort
- Why it was important for Zebrafi to find talented employees who could both function in the company at the stage it was in and was prepared for its eventual growth
- How not all employees can or are willing to grow into a new stage with your business, and how to retain those people in new roles they’re still suited for
- How Jeff made the transition from running his company to bringing in the right expertise and leading his team instead
- How Zebrafi came to the idea of offering their Zebra Salesbot offering for free, allowing users to find five similar companies to their ideal customer through Salesforce
- How a quarterly letter informing stakeholders of goals, successes, failures and strategy changes has helped Zebrafi maintain focus and accountability
