The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court in Accra, has ordered Achimota School to admit Tyrone Marhguy, the dreadlock-wearing Rastafarian boy into the school.

The Court in the same spirit directed Achimota School to also admit Oheneba Nkrabea, another Rastafarian student into the school.

Even if there is stigma I will know how to handle it and to straighten things up when they start

The saga has been ongoing since March 19, 2021, during which the two students have not been able to start academic work with their colleagues.

They were placed at the school through the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) having satisfied the entry requirement by creditably passing their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Tyrone Iras Marhguy’s results were attached to the lawsuit to emphasize his academic competence.

The school had asked the parents to cut off their wards’ hair or find another school for them.

Though the Ghana Education Student initially directed Achimota School to admit the students, it backtracked after pushback from the school’s stakeholders and further engagements.

In defence of the school’s decision, the Achimota School PTA said its revised rules and regulations from August 2020 indicate that students must keep their hair low, simple and natural.

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.
