“A Sustained Competitive Advantage is Being World Class in Sales”
A recent KESA study revealed that 44% of sales people receive little to no coaching. Of the 56 percent who are coached 96% attribute their success to sales coaching they receive from their managers.
The Sales Executive Council’s research with 2000 sales professionals showed that salespeople who are coached for three hours a month, on average, achieve 107% of their quota.
If you want your salespeople to become and sustain a world-class status you need to be a good role model for them. As you evolve so does your team. Consider this truth: Your team is a reflection of you.
The majority of sales managers are not coached by their managers and, therefore, have few role models. Rather than developing their salespeople, many sales managers are filling the role of super salesperson on their teams. While it is great that they lead by example, it is more important that they share the secrets of their success.
The goal of sales coaching is to improve performance.
Sales training vs. coaching: Trainers teach you how to play the game; a sales coach teaches you how to perfect your game, while building in the added accountability to ensure you actually play and achieve your high score every game.
