Harry Kane’s return excites Dele Alli

As a player who has had a few hamstring injuries, it’s a weird one because I don’t want him to rush it because I know how much it can come back, but at the same time, we need him.

The Rise and Fall of the Account Manager

first_imgThe Account Manager is supposed to be responsible for making sure your client captures the value of using your products and services, and for helping to drive greater adoption. With that value recognized, the Account Manager can then introduce new offerings and create even greater value, bringing in the Account Executive to help create and capture these new opportunities. Well, in theory, this is what is supposed to happen.There is a reason that the Account Executive (supposed Hunter) is now the Account Manager (supposed Farmer) and the Account Manager is now Glorified Customer Service. The reason your Hunter isn’t hunting and your farmer isn’t farming is because each of them has taken one step down in responsibility. More accurately, they are pulled in that direction.When the customer service and operations teams can’t clean up the day-to-day challenges, maybe because the challenges are systemic, maybe because that team is disempowered, maybe because the Account Manager lacks trust in their operations team, maybe because the client has no trust in that team, or maybe because no one wants to engage in the conflict necessary to produce better results, the Account Manager steps in to solve those problems.Now, the Account Executive who ultimately owns the client, steps into their role of the Account Manager, trying to help the client with the existing problem and managing relationships without selling anything new, fearful of failing the client even further, and petrified of the pushback they expect from stakeholders who are already not happy.I’m just back from a day with the team at CEB, now Gartner, where they shared their latest research with me and a few other friends from the community. Their research shows that the strategies most companies believe will encourage revenue growth only end up causing members of the team that serves the client to do everything possible to retain the client–and nothing to actually grow the account.As I have written here and here, the best retention strategy is proactively creating greater value, from month to month, and quarter to quarter.Changing the Account Manager’s title to Client Success Manager (all the rage now) isn’t likely to clear up the lack of role clarity. It’s going to take a change in the overall strategy, and it’s going to require a clarity in roles–and a greater commitment to execution in each. Essential Reading!

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Rice praises West Ham character for Aston Villa drawby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveDeclan Rice praised West Ham’s character for their 0-0 draw with Aston Villa.Rice says West Ham would have lost Monday’s goalless draw at Aston Villa last season, but instead the confidence and spirit in the squad enabled them to grind out a hard-earned point.He told whufc.com: “To be honest, I think we’re very happy with the point. We were a bit slow in the first half. We kept the ball well at times, but it was a bit too end-to-end and in the second half, when we went down to ten, we knew it was going to be tough because we know they’ve got some top players, but we dug in, defended really well and were still creating chances.“We weren’t just sat back. We were still trying to get the three points and I think we can be happy with our night’s work.”He added: “When we’re playing now, we’re playing with that confidence. We’re defending hard, we’re attacking hard and every player who puts on the shirt, we’re feeling confident to go out there and get the three points.” last_img read more

And everyone is jumping up and pressing the panic button.“This kid has ability, he also has something very important – a level head.“As much as everyone around him may be panicking, he understands that – because he’s been through it already at Dortmund.“He knows that patience is needed, and that through the ability he has, he’ll get there in the end.“I’m sure that right now he’s thinking – I’ve done it all before, I need to step up a level, but I can do this.” last_img read more

Urban Meyer On Conference Strength: “I Don’t Know Anyone Else’s Schedule”

first_imgARLINGTON, TX – DECEMBER 29: Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes during the Goodyear Cotton Bowl against the USC Trojans in the second quarter at AT&T Stadium on December 29, 2017 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)Among the most prominent college football talking points heading into week two was that of Ohio State’s weak remaining schedule. Michigan State is the only ranked team on the Buckeyes’ schedule, which many SEC coaches, including Bret Bielema and Dan Mullen, complained about. The weekend did not go well for those two; Mullen lost by two against LSU despite the Tigers failing to generate any kind of passing offense, while Bielema’s Razorbacks were embarrassed by Toledo.When asked about the complaints during his Monday press conference, Meyer said that he doesn’t pay attention to any other team’s schedule.Asked about strength of conferences, Urban Meyer: “I don’t know anyone else’s schedule. … I don’t know how (people) know that.”— Ari Wasserman (@AriWasserman) September 14, 2015Urban Meyer says he has no idea how the Big Ten is perceived right now. “I don’t know anyone’s schedule…I don’t care.”— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) September 14, 2015While conference pride plays a factor in college football, for the top teams in the country, that’s probably the correct approach.last_img read more

Video: Bill O’Reilly Asked Urban Meyer If He’d Have Cut Jameis Winston Following The Crab Legs Incident

(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer made the rounds yesterday, appearing on The Dan Patrick Show, CBS, ESPN and Fox to promote his new book, titled “Above the Line.” Bill O’Reilly, host of The O’Reilly Factor, made sure to ask some interesting questions.O’Reilly, alluding to Meyer’s strict policies, asked the Buckeyes head man what he’d have done if Jameis Winston, who infamously stole crab legs from a Publix ahead of the 2014 season, had been on his team. He said he “would have had a hard time letting it go.”Of course, it’s always easy to say what you’d have done when you aren’t in the exact situation. That being said, Meyer probably runs a tighter ship now than he did in the past.last_img read more
