Cheddar further disclosed that it is very expensive to keep the tigers as he feeds them with one full cow every 3 days.

”Nobody took the animals from me, they can’t take them from me. You saw the headlines that I have been given the approval to keep two tigers at home and that is what happened. They have always been in my possession….they are my animals and I feed them. I feed them with one cow every three days. Its very expensive to keep them, ” he said.

The renowned entrepreneur and philanthropist further thanked the Forest for their corporation in helping get a proper facility for his pets.

It will be recalled that some few years ago, some residents close to Cheddars house expressed concerns over the presence of the animals in the neighbourhood. According to them, the presence of the animals makes them feel unsafe.

However, the Director of Operations at the Wildlife Division, Luri Kanton, in a media interview after visiting the estate, said the big cats posed no threat to the residents.

“We have made the visit to look at the tigers to look at their conditions, the cage they are put in and then we want to assure the general public that the tigers are well secured in this cage and our investigation also reveals that so far, their welfare too is being catered for.”

Mr. Kanton at the time explained that the animals will be relocated after a new structure has been constructed for them. He further  assuaged the fears expressed by the residents of Wonda World Estates, Avenue Lincoln near the British High Commission at Ridge in Accra.

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.
