Course description

Sales Leadership

Smart Sales Management Course

Companies know the value of training their sales force, but many don’t realize the importance of developing their front-line sales managers. A sales representative can seamlessly transition from a position of selling to one of managing, despite the fact that there is a substantially different skill set between the two job functions. Training front-line managers not only produces a compelling return on investment, it’s also a critical element of sales success. One of the most valuable skills a sales manager can learn is how to manage a sales team and create strong relationships through effective sales coaching. When managers know how to coach, salespeople perform better and stay longer.

Sales managers need a set of defined skills that are different than salespeople. They are

  • Recruiting and selecting A players
  • Coaching style leadership skills vs. traditional skills
  • Sales performance management
  • Conflict management
  • Team building skills
  • Effective Observation skills
  • Leadership and Motivation
  • Good character and influence skills
  • Industry knowledge
  • Assessing and developing strengths and weaknesses

In this course titled Smart Sales Management, you will learn how to effectively use proven techniques and a coaching method to effectively improve sales performance.
