In case you missed it, we’ve been chatting with one of the Atlantic Solutions team leaders who got to attend the exclusive three-day Top Gun retreat. Read more of our interview with Hassan Wehbeh below:
What kind of jobs did the other attendees have?
All of them work in some kind of leadership position. There were about 500 to 600 people that were considered, but only a few got selected. Those people have proven that they’re top notch at their jobs, above all of the other people. The people selected had all kinds of responsibilities. It’s pretty fascinating what they’ve achieved. Being picked isn’t easy. Every person there had a purpose for wanting to be at Top Gun, they wanted that one step forward. Nothing happens in our business by accident, when we set a goal, we act on it and we reach it. You don’t just lay back and wish for the goal to move a step closer.
What were some common qualities that you noticed among the people selected?
They were all friendly and willing to connect. We were all mostly trained in sales, which has a bad reputation. People don’t want to do sales. But our job is to make the sales process simple and easy to implement. This is something that unites us as leaders.
Who did you receive the one-on-one coaching from?
I scheduled a one-on-one with every single one of the coaches! There was one CEO of a big company that I didn’t get to meet with, but that’s the only one I didn’t have a one-on-one with. We had a group meeting with him, but I basically took control of the conversation and asked all of the questions, it was like me and him back and forth.
What were the workshops like?
They coach you as if you are about to manage a new office. They make sure that you’re well equipped to do that, even though you’re not there yet. You’ve already achieved the first step by reaching your position. They teach you to achieve even more.
