Happy New Year, Jigsaw community! As you saw in our blog last week, 2012 will bring lots of exciting changes for our members, and of course that includes on The Corner.
We’re planning some changes to the look and feel of The Corner, but to kick off the year right, I’d like to introduce the Member Question of the Month program. Each month, we’ll choose one person who has really stood out as an insightful professional and a leader in the community, and that person will be our member of the month. Along with their title, the member of the month will win an Ogio backpack.
The Member of the Month will get to kick off our contest by asking a business question to the community. This is where you all come in. We’re really excited to learn from your experience and your insight, so be sure to share your thoughts on whatever question they have chosen. Our esteemed panel of judges (the MVPs) will choose the 3 best responses, and then you the community will get to vote on which of those was the very best response. What resonated with you? What post did you most agree with? You know how Jigsaw loves to give away prizes, so the person whose post is chosen as the very best response will win a Jigsaw hooded sweatshirt.
So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce this month’s Member of the Month:
Stingray was an obvious choice for our first member of the month. Many of you probably know him from his Sales Joke of the Day, but what you might not realize is that Stingray also polices the Jigsaw database as an Active Data Defender. What really stood out though was his leadership on The Corner. We were so impressed when he rallied the troops to help Data.com move toward winning the Top Sales Productivity Award and when he facilitated some very thought provoking ethics conversations.
We can’t wait to see what you think about the question he has come up with for our first Member Question of the Month.
So get to the All Things Sales board and tell us, what are your thoughts on the importance of planning? How detailed is your business plan? Your life plan? Or are you just content with “winging” it?
