How Sales Coaching Can Create a Sales-Focused Organization

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- What is the view or mindset of your organization toward its sales team? The sales team should be viewed as a high-performance team, no different than a professional sports team. The entire organization (employees / leadership) must get behind the sales team and be supportive, helpful, and passionate about winning, succeeding, and driving results.

Too often sales teams are expected to function just like an owner or leader would, often relying on passion and inside knowledge the sales team doesn't have access to.

It requires a commitment and the investment of time, energy, and effort with a clear vision of what success looks like. Why not take stock now and find a few areas that will make a difference?
