At One Chicago, Inc. an integral part of our organization’s growth is based on our management team’s ability to understand all aspects of our business from the ground up. All new hires begin in the Entry-Level phase of our training program where they learn the basics of sales and marketing.

Successful business owners and CEOs report that the one skill that they believe contributes most to their success is sales. Many people associate the word “sales” with things like manipulating, pressuring, and cajoling, (like old-school, unlikeable car salesmen). But if you think of it as explaining the logic and benefits of a decision, it is a skill everyone, not just business owners need. For example, managers can help employees understand the importance of following new systems; developers show investors how a project will generate revenue. (Inc. Article. April 2, 2012).
