Beliefs and Objectives

Common traits of a healthy sales culture...

 

After 20 years working in field sales under many managers and schemes, here’s a short list of our core beliefs.  We think it’s important to determine if we are on the same page, or not, and while we approach each client as unique, we believe it is important to:  1.  Improve sales force skills and support, 2. Maximizing selling time (minimize distractions, road blocks), and 3. Give freedom to Play by Big Boy/Girl Rules with clear accountability for results - in other words sharpen skills, give them support, get out of the way and keep them accountable.  Also see our Sales Blogs for more insights:
