Staying Productive In Silicon Valley: Elay Cohen

We’ve shared plenty of client horror stories with you all. Clients that don’t respect you or your craft, clients that are cheap, micromanage, or never really have anything positive to say about you. Ouch. We’ve all been there.

Our guest on The Futur podcast today is the complete opposite of those horror story clients. We like to call him the unicorn client. Elay Cohen is the founder of SalesHood, and is on the podcast today to talk about how he’s managed to stay productive in the tech-ring of Silicon Valley.

When Elay Cohen moved to Silicon Valley from his hometown of Toronto, he had dreams of starting his own successful company. Elay worked with various tech companies including Oracle and Salesforce, and learned the ropes of the industry.

It would be fifteen years until that dream came true, but it’s safe to say that it was worth the wait. SalesHood is changing the face of sales culture. During those first fifteen years, Elay became an expert in his field and became known in the tech world as one of the main players who helped grow Salesforce into the multi-billion-dollar enterprise it is today.

Elay’s main vision for SalesHood was to help elevate the sales profession and help companies, organizations, and cultures really improve the productivity of their teams and be the best they can be.

How do you connect people to exchange ideas, stories, and knowledge? How does this impact the workplace? And what does this do for people’s productivity?

Chris got a chance to sit down and chat with his client and friend to find out how Elay stays productive while he’s busy running a fast-growing company and writing his second book. Listen in to this episode to learn how Elay’s making teams more productive and making strides in the tech industry.
