Most sales manager training is simply re-purposed sales person training, and sales management programs are often focused on generalized leadership skills. But sales managers need more than better selling skills and an executive presence – They need targeted knowledge on how to guide their salespeople to higher performance. They need to be more than just a sales manager, they need to be a sales leader.

Sales people follow sales leaders. They work harder, they get more done, and they are more inclined to love what they do, if they are following someone they see as a leader. Unfortunately, in today’s workplace, most sales people see their sales manager as nothing more than a boss. Bosses get no respect; an unflattering reputation precedes them and what follows is; lower production, contentious personnel, and a workforce that has a haphazard attitude about reaching their sales quotas.

The problem that 90% of sales management confront in today’s workplace, is that of perception. Sales people do not perceive them as leaders. If you are going to succeed in today’s corporate environment, you must be able to change people’s view of you to that of a leader.

Overcoming the obstacles to prospecting that are within the sales professional. (Read More)

For thousands of salespeople, picking up the phone and calling a prospect is the most stressful part of their life. Many of these reluctant salespeople stare at the phone, secretly hoping that it will disappear. They procrastinate, get ducks in a row, and work to ensure that everything is perfect before they dial. Any excuse—and I mean any excuse—to do something else takes priority.

Too many think, that if we create a routine or a devise a formula, that prospecting would get easier.
