Leading Your Sales Team
It's more than just managing the numbers.
You must now rely on your sales team to achieve the goals you once achieved for yourself.
Your job is not to sell; it is to coach, mentor, and motivate, and to hold others accountable.
Learn five strategies you can do today that will positively impact those you manage.
As a supervisor, coach or mentor, there are numerous opportunities each day to give—a helping hand, words of encouragement, advice or counsel. When you contribute to others, others contribute to you.
