Growing at lighting speed
I always loved challenges. Every time in the past, when given the occasion on taking on a new job, opportunity, professionally, privately, I always gave it a go and went with the flow ! Most of the time with quite some success and quickly filling in the expectations.
But at Hilti I was given the chance to grow, at the age of 25 years old, into a function of Sales Manager, leading a team of 10 sales reps, from 30 to 55 in age, with much more sales experience, technical background and strong personalities. For the first time I really understood what struggle meant. Coaching, developing, recruiting, having some tough discussions, building a team spirit, motivating, etc… on top of all the big accounts I was working on, talking to buyers from companies of 200+ people much beter than me in negotiating skills, made me freaked out in the first place. How to achieve this?
But it was the right choice and I don’t regret it, as Hilti doesn’t (I hope :D), and after almost 2 years I learnt so fast and so much, beyond everything I could have expected ! Only Hilti can provide you with such great opportunities. If you want to jump, they’ll give you this little push you need 😉
