Ghanaian Actress, Jackie Appiah has stated that she does not need to be paid to be a public education ambassador for the novel coronavirus.

Last week, there were reports that the government was seeking some public figures for paid ambassadorial duties on cover-19.

However, the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, during a press briefing, indicated that they “were thinking of having them as public education ambassadors or public education champions.”

“Government doesn’t intend to pay any celebrity to go out there to become ambassadors for COVID-19. I mentioned in our meeting with the GJA, NMC etc. that we were also thinking of having persons with large following share our messages,” he added.

Speaking in an interview on Showbiz 927 on 3FM with MzGee, Jackie Appiah stressed the need for everyone to come on board and help educate the populace on the virus.

“I don’t need to wait for government; nobody needs to wait for anybody to call them. I think it is right for an individual to preach to people to talk to people that’s why we have the numbers. God has given us the numbers to educate people…everyone needs to educate people because people don’t understand [what is going on],” she told MzGee.

“We all need to educate each other…This is a global thing, it’s not just my industry alone. It’s quite sad…sometimes I use my platform to educate people.  “I’m doing this already for free right now nobody is paying me. I’m already doing it without being paid, she added.”

Some celebrities including Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson, Deborah Vanessa, Edem, Shatta Wale, John Dumelo and a host of others, have stepped up to help stop the spread of the virus by sharing safety measures with their followers on social media.

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.
