How to Succeed at Managing and Measuring Productivity

Brian Jackson, Sandler coach from San Diego, talks about productivity hacks: how to measure and manage productivity. Productivity is one of the most important aspects of any business. Productivity isn’t just about quantity—it’s also about quality. It can also be one of the most difficult to measure and manage.

In this podcast, we’ll talk about how sometimes small goals can be more motivating than big goals, and how having a clear plan with specific and measurable goals is important for success.
