A unique way to celebrate and motivate your sales team… here’s an example of the sales team at the Hotel del Coronado outside San Diego which took the art of team bonding to a whole new level when the group jumped out of an airplane to celebrate its June bookings success.
The team exceeded its monthly booking goal by 200% that month, a production level that had not been accomplished since 2005. To celebrate, they all went skydiving.
“I set the goal so high that I never thought that I would actually have to jump out of a perfectly good airplane,” said Cheryl Ferguson, director of sales, who is afraid of heights. “But they are an amazing team and knocked their goals out of the park … so I had to live up to my end of the deal.”
The entire sales team, along with the new Vice President, General Manager Andre Zotoff, and the director of conference services jumped from 13,000 ft (3,962 m) to celebrate the triumph.
