  • Advanced Sales Management: How to Engage Your Salespeople for Maximum Performance

    Includes a Live Event on 05/16/2019 at 11:00 AM (EDT)

    The #1 skill of mid-level or advanced sales managers is helping their salespeople perform at their maximum level. It’s called the science of ENGAGEMENT. “Engaged” means that they are passionate about their jobs and give a full effort, week in and week out, without management intervention. Unfortunately, surveys show that 70% of salespeople are “Disengaged,” meaning that they’re just going through the motions. The good news is that “Engagement” can be controlled and influenced by proper management and onboarding techniques, and this program will teach attendees how to begin engaging their salespeople on the first day of employment, and re-engage them as necessary throughout their employment tenure.
