Coffee is for Closers!

"Our inaugural "Coffee Is for Closers" sales talk meetup at Union Coffee, was a great exchange discussing sales best practices, targeting your Ideal customer, understanding customer action commitments and the 3 types of sales work we all must do. Next session we will review opportunities verses our ideal customers and discuss lead generation and cold calling for success; or better said, preparing for "high gain" customer conversations."

Business Book of the Month Lesson 3

August Book of the Month:  

Lesson 3: Build a system of systems, so your business doesn’t rely on people’s skills.

If you continue to weave the idea of systems as a constant thread in your business, you’ll end up with a system of systems, which seamlessly work together.
That means you can then go and change individual parts of each system, as long as you consider the effects on the other systems. Three kinds of systems will make up your business.

  1. Hard systems – inanimate objects like your coffee machine.
  2. Soft systems – ideas and living things, like your free cookie policy or the work attitude of your employees.
  3. Information systems – training materials and manuals, and the data you collect, for example how many customers order lattes vs. cappuccinos.

Buying a new coffee machine will of course affect the other parts, for example your employees might not like it as much as the old one and therefore make worse lattes, so customers end up ordering more cappuccinos.
Instead of doing all the work yourself, it now becomes your job to make sure the systems run smoothly together, which will also help you make sure your future franchisees are successful in running their own cafés!
