Results  Driven Sales Management®

Managing a sales force isn’t like managing any other department. Lack of sales management effectiveness is a huge issue in many organizations.

 

Without effective sales management, goals are too often missed, and gross profit is less than it should be. Having an effective manager can be the most significant factor in a seller’s success.

 

Without it, sales results wane, and goals are missed.

 

This program involves 10 skill sets that sales managers need to bring about maximum results from their team

 

 

The program provides 10 months of blended learning with online training for a different topic each month, followed by a face-to-face training session, which may be virtual or in person.

 

The training is not sales training. Instead, it provides the tools, framework, knowledge, and skills to recruit, hire and manage your salespeople, so they get significantly greater results for your organization.

  • If you hire the wrong salespeople, your organization will pay a steep price in lost sales opportunities

  • There are well-defined traits and competencies of great salespeople that you must know in order to choose the best candidate
