Powerful Quotes from Chet Lovegren

  1. "One of the big differences I think between a Hall of Fame quarterback like Peyton Manning and someone who just floats around the league is film review. The best sellers are the same way."

  2. "You need to take time to make time. If you're not reviewing your own calls, you're missing a huge opportunity to improve."

  3. "Are you someone who waits until your boss wants to walk through a discovery call or a cold call review with you, or are you an individual that wants to go see what you did and you're okay with listening to your own voice and seeing the parts where you messed up and figuring out how can I better that part?"

  4. "Being a head coach is so stressful because you work 80 hours a week, probably spend 30 hours a week just watching film. It’s maniacal to think that there are sales leaders who actually think call review is always like the last thing on someone's list."

  5. "Good people that inherently want to do good want to be coached. They want to know how to do the job better... Most leaders don't want to take that onus, but those who do see significant improvements in their team's performance."
