Chelsea Ladies boss challenges players

first_imgChelsea Ladies manager Emma Hayes has challenged her players to prove they deserve a regular place when they face London Bees in this weekend’s Continental Cup clash.The Blues should have little trouble dispatching the Women’s Super League 2 side at Staines Town’s Wheatsheaf Park ground on Saturday.But two defeats against Arsenal this season, plus a loss against leaders Birmingham, have given Hayes food for thought ahead of her team’s upcoming return to WSL action.“We know we should beat London Bees although it will be tough and we will need to earn the win,” said Hayes, whose side are top of Group One in the Continental Cup.“But having lost last time out at Arsenal this is a chance for my players to show they deserve to be in the starting XI, not just this weekend but in the big games to come against Arsenal once again and Manchester City when we return to the FA WSL.”She added: “Of course we are expected to win, but I will be watching closely as I expect a reaction from my players following the 3-0 loss at Arsenal last time out.“We play Arsenal twice more before the end of the season, having lost in both cup games we’ve played, and my players need to show me they can find a way to win these big games as until now we haven’t shown we can.“We have underperformed in big games and the players need to remember they are only playing against another shirt – the name of the team is irrelevant. We have shown too much respect and it needs to change.“I have challenged the group to prove themselves and expect a positive reaction against London Bees.’Chelsea Ladies v London Bees kicks off at 2pm at Wheatsheaf Park, Staines.

Zane Trace FFA students take fourth at Big E

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Four students from the Zane Trace FFA were very excited to hear news that they were invited to compete in the 2015 Food Science CDE at the Eastern States Exposition. The Eastern States Exposition is “New England’s Great State Fair.” It is the largest agricultural event on the east coast, held in West Springfield, Mass. The fair includes something from every New England state.Students attending were Ann Shelby, Mariah Cox, Nathaneal Freeman, and Olivia Pflaumer. Their day started early Friday morning, with a plane ride out to Boston, Mass. The students were able to explore Boston by going to Old North Church, walking the freedom trail, visiting the Boston Science Museum, and eating at an incredible Italian restaurant. It was a long day exploring Boston with their competition the next day, so everyone headed back to their hotel in Springfield to be ready in the morning.On Saturday morning the Food Science competition started at 8:30 and was set to end at noon. Students were expected to complete a written test, triangle test, aroma identification, customer inquiry, product development, and a few more. After the contest, the Zane Trace FFA members were able to see what the Big E had to offer. They spent most of their time exploring the replica state houses that had every the state was about inside. Later that day, a banquet was held to announce the results of the CDE competitions. The results for our team were as follows: Nathaneal Freeman, 9th individually; Olivia Pflaumer, 8th individually; and the Zane Trace Team earned 4th place overall in their area.Sunday was spent packing up and seeing anything that they missed on Friday in Boston. The last stops were visiting the Harvard University campus, and seeing the USS Constitution, and then flying back home.All four students were very grateful to have earned the opportunity to attend this event and are hopeful to be able to return next year.last_img read more

How Long Does It Take To Win?

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now It takes time to nurture and develop your prospects. It isn’t easy to be known for the value you create or to prove you have ideas. The longer it takes you to prove you have the ideas and the ability to help, the longer it takes to create and win an opportunity.It takes time to work through the discovery process with your dream client once they agree to meet with you. Trying to spend less time working to understand your client’s needs–and helping them to understand them–only increases the time it will take you to win that opportunity. If you win it at all.Rushing to present your solution in hopes of speeding things along actually slows the process of creating and winning an opportunity. It doesn’t mean that all the work that you should have completed up to that point doesn’t still need to be done. But it does mean that what you present isn’t going to be dialed in tight enough and that you aren’t likely to have the consensus you need.You can sometimes find an opportunity at just the right time and acquire orders without following your sales process at all. That seems really fast. Until you actually start doing the work and realize that you and your new client didn’t do any of the work together that might have given you a reasonable opportunity to succeed together. Now what you won is at risk of being lost forever. The time you gained is now lost dealing with challenges you hadn’t anticipated.You gain speed by having all the conversations and gaining all the commitments you need to create and win an opportunity. The sooner you have those conversations and the sooner you gain those commitments, the sooner you win your opportunity. Skipping stages to speed things along actually slows things down.In all things with human beings, fast is slow and slow is fast. If you want faster results, do the work.last_img read more
