- Why do Salespeople Fail?
Sales managers have a
tough job. They are responsible and accountable for sales.
Customers are demanding higher levels of quality and
responsiveness than ever before, yet typically sales
managers have little control over what's delivered.
The popular notion is
that sales managers must get their people to "sell
differently". For example, many sales managers are
trying to get their people to "Call higher in the
customer organization" and to "Be more
strategic." Meanwhile, many sales managers suspect
that now, more than ever before, their salespeople need to
"Execute the basics."
To help participating
sales managers correctly assess their people, their
organization, their market-and themselves-for the purpose
of focusing their efforts on two things:
- where their effort
will make the greatest difference, and
- in ways that will have
the most impact.
Participants in this
Eagle Learning Center course will receive confidential
feedback from their salespeople, their own manager, and
themselves as to their current performance. That feedback
will provide a backdrop for large and small group
discussion, brief lectures, video, experiential exercises,
and personal action planning.
