3. Gulu's Snack Company is a family owned company located in Himalaya Mountains. Gulu started the business in 1956, by selling homemade chips. Nowadays, Gulu's is Rs.58 million snack Food Company that is struggling to regain market share lost to fierce competitors. In the early 1980, Gulu passed the business on to his son, Gulu Jr., who is currently grooming his son, Gulshan to succeed himself as head of the company. Six month ago, Gulshan joined Gulu's Snacks as a salesperson and after four months, he was quickly promoted to sales manager. Gulshan recently graduated from a local university with an M.B.A. in marketing, and Gulu Jr. was hoping that Gulshan would be able to implement strategies that could help turn the company around. One of Gulshan's initial strategies was to introduce a new sales performance management system. As part of this approach, any sales person who receives a below average performance rating would be required to attend a mandatory coaching session with his/her supervisor. Gulshan is hoping that these coaching sessions will motivate his employees in increase their sales. Here is the description of the reaction of three salespeople who have been required to attend a coaching session because of their low performance over the previous quarter.
Nishant is a hard worker. He takes pride in his work. He has learned selling techniques. He has accompanied top salesman. He has no problem asking for advice and doing whatever needs to be done to learn the business. He has cheery attitude and is a real "team player and giving the company 150 percent at all times. It has been a tough quarter for Nishant, but he is doing his best to achieve his sales targets. He feels that failure to make quota during this past quarter results not from lack of effort but just bad luck in the economy. But he is now hopeful in the next quarter. Nishant is upset with Gulshan for having him attend the coaching session because this is the first time in three years that his sales quota has not been met. He exceeded the sales quota this year yet had not received a "thank you" or "good job" for those efforts. The entire experience has left Nishant demotivated and questioning his future with the company.
Navin is happy to have his job at Gulu's Snack Company although he really doesn't like sales work that much. Navin accepted this position because he felt that he wouldn't have to work hard and would have a lot of free time during the day. Navin was sent to coaching mainly because his customer satisfaction reports were low; in fact, they were the lowest in the company. Navin tends to give scanned presentations and does not listen closely to customers’ needs. Consequently, Navin makes numerous errors is new sales orders, which delays shipments and loses business and goodwill for Gulu's Snack Company. He thinks that the coaching session is a waste of time. He doesn't socialize with others in the office. He attributes other's success and promotions to "who they know" in the company rather than their hard work. He feels that no matter how much effort is put into the job, he will never be adequately rewarded.
For three of the last five years Nikhil was the number one salesperson in the division and had hopes of being promoted to sales manager. When Gulshan joined the company, Nikhil worked closely with Gulu Jr. to help Gulshan learn all facets of the business. Nikhil thought this close relationship with Gulu Jr. would ensure his upcoming promotion to the coveted position of sales manager. He goes late for appointment or misses them entirely. His sales performance declined dramatically, which resulted in a drastic loss of income. Although Nikhil had been dedicated and fiercely loyal to Gulu Jr. and the company for many years, he is now looking for other employment. Nikhil is bitter and resentful of his current situation and now faces a mandatory coaching session that will be conducted by Gulshan.
