This past weekend I read that the lyrics to the popular Christmas song, “Baby it’s Cold Outside” were rewritten to emphasize consent. And the weekend before I saw the news that Brady Bunch Mom, Florence Henderson, had passed away. That immediately caused the Brady Bunch theme song to come to mind but my brain tends to combine things. In 2005, when I combined sales and baseball, it became Baseline Selling, which when I looked as I was writing this, was still ranked #9 in the sales category on Amazon.com. So my brain went and combined the Brady Bunch Theme song with a lyric change and came up with this diddy on OMG.
If you’re too young to know or forgot how the theme song sounds, refresh your memory here. Then sing these lyrics to that old memory:
Here’s a story, of a normal sales force
That was struggling to grow business every day
All of them had weak performers ‘cept their leader
And most had *NFA.
Here’s the story, of their top performer
Who had bigger, badder, better customers
All of them were sold by other sales reps
Before becoming hers…
The OMG Sales Force Evaluation
Showed the boss why sales were rarely getting closed
Most had Sales DNA below a sixty
And pipelines full of holes.
OMG made some really great suggestions
And they followed what we said they had to do
And the changes caused performance to get better
Sales went through the roof.
OMG helps your business make more money
With answers and some truly great insights
And our candidate assessments help recruiting
You’ll get selection right.
