2. Beans & Bullets: Military Insights on the Power of Sleep w/ Ron Needham, SVP Sales & Marketing, North America at ManpowerGroup
As a sales leader, you are responsible for equipping your team for success.
But there is more to it than investing in sales coaching or the shiniest new tech.
Your team’s health and wellbeing are just as much your responsibility.
And that means making sure they get healthy sleep.
In the latest episode of the Rise Science Podcast, I interviewed Ron Needham, SVP Sales & Marketing, North America at ManpowerGroup, the world’s third-largest staffing firm, and a decorated US Infantry veteran.
Ron’s impressive career as a sales leader at some of the world’s most successful companies, including elcom, Dun & Bradstreet, SAP, and Salesforce has always been informed by lessons learned serving in the military.
Drawing on all of this experience, Ron has made sleep one of the top priorities for his team.
We discussed how the military influenced Ron’s leadership style, why sleep is a leader’s responsibility, especially in a crisis, and Ron’s top performance tip.
