A Perfect 10?

I do a lot of interviewing of sales candidates for my clients.....in an effort to help them make better hires, and to better understand how to propel the candidates they do hire to success more quickly. Recently I interviewed a candidate that presented well, had a solid behavioral assessment that pointed toward the ability to succeed in the sales role they were being interviewed for, and was experienced in the role. There were some challenges in the interview, but nothing that a good sales manager could not coach a rep up on. The one overriding issue that I couldn't get past was.....there didn't seem to be a lot of "want" in this candidate. That is, they didn't seem to really want the job. N

Modus Operandi

What's your mode? That is, what mode is your company in? In this rapidly changing healthcare landscape you should be considering one of 3 options.... 1. Buy 2. Sell 3. Grow And that's about it. Why? With reimbursement shrinking for Medicare providers, hospice providers getting squeezed by large national competitors, and the explosion of competition in the private duty world....standing pat means you are contracting. Many of my clients have seen this over the past 3 years.....what once was easy to achieve (revenue) is now difficult. Year over year revenue growth is more difficult than ever. What to do? Buy, Sell, or Grow....simple. If you are in Buy mode, you are aggressively reaching out to

Trust In The Process

Here is a recent testimonial from one of the attendees of our Private Duty ZEE Franchise Sales Training Program. This was a 10 week live guided sales training program exclusively for franchise offices. The program is now available OnDemand for anyone to purchase and use. "Hey Michael: Hope you are doing well.

Thanks for the help" Guido Cubellis ABC-Seniors Your office can have results li

The Future of Home Health

Twice this week while interviewing potential sales candidates I was asked, "Michael, what do you think the future of home healthcare will look like?". What I explained to them is that the entire industry is consolidating. CMS has openly said they feel there is a surplus of providers and the continued reimbursement cutbacks and recently proposed changes to PPS methodology are going to further, and accelerate that trend. I went on to explain that the agencies that will thrive and survive are those that are positioning themselves to no longer talk about the next patient referral, but the next 100 patient referrals. That is, agencies that speak the language of ACOs and Bundled Payment Providers.
