How many of your sales managers really manage and develop their subordinates in an organized and structured manner? Unfortunately, most sales managers share the following common characteristics:
- Superb selling ability, but are lacking fundamental management and training skills, because they have never been taught how to manage
- Promoted because they were the best sales rep or because “it was about time for them to become managers”
- They received little or no management training pre or post promotion
