I first met Carol Griffiths at a previous company, I was part of the telesales team and she'd been bought in by the higher ups to pretty much restructure and turnaround the sales function. I can remember finding her incredibly direct, efficient, and if I'm honest I was shit scared of her. The sales team were not delivering and wasn't as profitable as it should have been - Carol was brought in to troubleshoot and solve this problem. It wasn't pretty, it was frustrating at times, but she wasn't there to make friends and was completely focused on fixing the business problem, and it wasn't personal.
