Involve every single employee impacting sales to be part of the sales planning process annually.

Well in a way every employee impacts every part of the business, ergo impacting sales. I know of orgs around 100 employees that do this - every decision is taken up company wide. Guess it becomes tough when the company grows

Every prospect has to give me AN answer. Doesn't have to be yes...they just can't stop returning calls/emails.
