Sales Leadership and the Super Bowl
It’s a brand new year, and it coincides with the end of the National Football League regular season. There are a host of leadership personnel changes taking place behind the scenes. Click Here for full details on the list of coaches and the reasons for re-evaluation for future employment.
What can we learn and apply to sales from all the changes taking place with NFL leadership personnel changes?
Your sales manager position is parallel to a head coach in the NFL. It is their job to ensure high performance on the team. They are responsible for the results, period. How they get or don’t get results is a based on their ability to grow the team up or grow them out! Sales Coaching is a competency all it own and from our data we know that most Sales Managers don’t know how to coach effectively and they don’t coach often enough.
Sales Leadership Results
Results are also impacted by talent. As my dad used to say: “You can polish a turd but it’s still a turd.” Many companies are held hostage by their current sales team and the sales manger protects them, coddles tem and justifies their continued existence based on false conclusions, friendship, loyalty, and knowing replacement will be more difficult than continued mediocrity.
