You have arrived at a point in your career where you have determined that leading a sales team requires a special balance. A balance between managing your team to achieve short-term results and investing in changes that are necessary to be appealing for the customer in the future and to achieve good results.

You have concluded that a short-term focus can easily lead to fleeting and short-term sales results and your team runs the risk of lacking behind. You also know that the risk of long-term focus is that you and your team build a pie in the sky and you never get the 'treasure chest'.

How could the combination of the best of both terms look like for you? In addition, just like us, you know that the biggest challenge for a sales manager is to develop a team that is happy to achieve the desired qualitative and quantitative results.

How do you develop sales representatives in such a way that you stimulate their entrepreneurship and at the same time they contribute in a structured way to the ambitions of the team?
