The Natural Process to Success
Assess asks and answers important questions about progress toward your goal relative to your plan. Learn is considered with all areas related to productivity, and the evolution of your plan by way of updates and thoughtful revisions. This step values curated data from a variety of sources, such as industry reports, research, books and articles, events, etc.
Learn is the safeguard for productivity optimization. Through Learn, you reevaluate, restructure, revise your IDEAL plan in order to be more productive. If you cease or restrict your ability to learn, you limit your potential to improve, and thereby minimize your options and opportunities. The subsequent result: you preclude any chance for and benefit from greater success. Therefore, your regard for ongoing development through discovery—through the IDEAL process—is imperative for sales growth.
Learn calls for action—the action of making decisions, the application of what has been learned in order to revise Intend and the work that follows—Direct, Engage, Assess.
