Veteran actor, Psalm Adjetefio, popularly known as TT, has given a break down of how he spent the GHC 50,000 donation that was made to him by His Excellency, the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

In September, 2021, after news of his inability to pay rent broke, the Vice President, upon seeing the video, asked his aide to present GHS30,000 to pay for the actor’s rent for five years, plus an additional GHS20,000 for his general upkeep.

However, in a recent turn of events, TT, on Monday night, was recorded in a 3 minutes audio, begging Media Personality, MzGee to help him with some  “leftovers” from her kitchen since the support he had been receiving from individuals stopped coming after Vice-president Bawumia’s public donation to him.

Since the audio made it social media, there have been concerns on where the money he was gifted by the Vice President went.

Speaking in an interview on Takoradi-based Empire FM, TT revealed that he had invested the money.

“I sat down quietly and taking note of the situation, that the whole world has got their eyes and tongue on the money so I should be very careful how I use that money. So what did I do, land has become very very expensive now, where we are, and I hear other places, right now, a plot of land is costing 30,000 cedis; so I got two plots of land which I paid for one with cash straight away. I’m yet to pay for the other one,” TT explained.

He added;

“My son says he wants to be a driver, he’s been to driving school but for two years he’s been at home and he was becoming frustrated. So I told him something will happen. I will buy him a car. Meanwhile,I didn’t know where the money is coming from, so when the Vice President gave me the money, after putting that 30,000 Cedis in that plot of land, I used the remaining 20,000 cedis and said this is the time for me to do something for my son, so I bought a Ghana-used taxi in a very good condition for him. He has now registered at the station where we are and he plies that road.

The Role of Communication in Coaching Sales Teams to Success

Effective communication is the cornerstone of any successful sales team. When sales leaders harness the power of clear and constructive interaction, they create an environment where trust prospers, and their effectiveness soars through the roof in terms of coaching sales teams. From active listening to personalized feedback, each conversation shapes the future of sales engagements. This impacts not only the team’s cohesion but also its ability to close deals and foster client relationships. In this article, we explore how communication channels and styles can significantly impact sales team dynamics and outcomes.

Understanding the Impact of Effective Communication in Sales Team Performance

Effective communication fosters a culture of transparency, enabling a sales team to operate as a united front. When sales representatives understand the goals, strategies, and tactics at play, they are better equipped to function cohesively. Clear guidelines and expectations mitigate confusion and provide a solid foundation from which sales teams can rise to the occasion.

Beyond clarity, effective communication also involves empathy and understanding. Sales managers who listen to their team’s feedback and concerns can make informed decisions that boost morale and productivity. Acknowledging achievements and addressing challenges head-on shows a level of engagement that encourages team members to strive for excellence.

Leveraging Active Listening to Identify Sales Opportunities

Active listening extends beyond simply hearing a client’s words; it involves understanding the underlying needs and desires that drive their actions. For sales professionals, this skill is critical in identifying opportunities that might otherwise be missed. Active listening can reveal the subtle nuances of a sales conversation, leading to more effective positioning of products or services.

Sales coaching often highlights the importance of active listening in building rapport with clients. When team members demonstrate that they truly understand a client’s situation, it builds trust and credibility—two essential components in any sales relationship. By mirroring and validating client concerns, sales professionals increase the likelihood of a successful transaction.

However, beyond understanding the client, active listening within the team itself is also vital. When sales leaders listen to their representatives, they capture valuable insights into frontline experiences, customer feedback, and product pain points. This internal intelligence is instrumental in refining strategies and addressing market challenges.

The Power of Constructive Feedback in Sales Team Development

Providing constructive feedback is one of the most significant contributions a manager can make to a salesperson’s growth. Constructive feedback celebrates strengths while also addressing areas for improvement in a supportive manner. This approach encourages continuous personal and professional development, which is essential in the fast-paced world of sales.

To be truly effective, feedback must be timely and relevant. This means highlighting specific instances where a sales representative excelled or could use improvement, rather than vague generalizations. In doing so, sales leaders set clear benchmarks for performance and create a roadmap for individual and collective progress.
