I talked with Katie Early, a sales leader at HubSpot, about her strategies for leading SDR/BDR teams to consistent sales success. Katie first talked to me about how she got started in a career in sales and what she loves about the profession.
We then talked about:
How Katie made the transition from an individual contributor sales role into a sales leadership role and the surprises she encountered and the lessons she learned.
Katie then shared her guidance for women who’d like to make the same transition into a leadership position.
Successfully leading teams to exceed monthly and annual sales targets on a consistent basis isn’t always easy. Katie shared some of her strategies that help her lead her team to ongoing success.
We discussed the importance of hiring right, coaching, ongoing training.
How SDR/BDR roles are important in selling success and Katie’s thoughts on how those front-line roles are evolving.
Katie recently moved into a new leadership role and made a move to Dublin. She told me about her new role and what led her to tackle this new challenge.
Enjoy the interview!
