Sales goals are rising year after year, yet the financial resources that you’re allocated to try and meet these goals may be dropping. Revenue streams are under pressure, and you’re naturally concerned that your team won’t meet their targets this year. Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Many leaders are beginning to think more closely about how to create a truly sales efficient organisation.

Sales people naturally have a tendency to prioritise the tasks that they like, procrastinating over other tasks which may limit productivity. To overcome and combat these new challenges and improve results, it’s important to assess, align, and train your sales team to achieve maximum performance at every level.

One of the best methods for achieving this is through an in-company Sales Academy, which brings multiple people from the organisation together. This can enable different members of the business to collaborate to identify key drivers, to better understand the bigger picture and match behaviors and processes with the ultimate goals of the organisation, and build a solid foundation that ensures everyone’s on the same page.

  • Clearly define associated development goals
  • Specify training goals per target group

Co-design the various programs of the Academy
