Supervisor, coach, trainer and mentor—you do it all—but are you effective?
Upper management sets the goals for your department and expects you to deliver. You may have little or no voice in determining those goals, or little choice in accepting them. However challenging, or even unrealistic, those goals may be, they now belong to you and you must channel your salespeople’s efforts into productive activities that will ensure the achievement of those goals.
Management programs often revolve around “ivory tower” concepts and theoretical contextual frameworks. Participants learn the “what,” “when,” and “why” behind management theories. They are left, however, with the burden of discovering how to put theory into practice in real-world situations.
The Sandler Management Solutions program brings both the “how” and the real world into the training room. The program emphasizes active skills training exercises and skills application specific to your actual goals and challenges and to your specific work environment.
So, what can you do to improve your performance and be a better manager, mentor, and motivator?
You must supervise, coach, and mentor them while holding them accountable for uncovering new business, sustaining existing business, managing their territories, and completing paperwork on time.
You must be able to recruit, hire, and train new salespeople who have the required experience, skills, and abilities to not just do the job, but to excel in the position.
