🫣#1 #mistake #companies are making #avoiding #training #sales reps and the #cost

After years of dealing with sales teams and sales reps #training, one common denominator is that companies are not investing in #coaching them or giving them the tools to win. When we talk about winning🎉, we mean the company wins and the reps, too.


🚨Let’s go to the numbers:

🏴☠️Only 43% of B2B Sellers are hitting their quotas

🏴☠️55% report lacking the basic skills necessary to perform their jobs effectively

🏴☠️82% of decision-makers feel that the sales reps they interact with are unprepared for sales calls

💰Implications for organizations:

📈The inability to achieve goals

📈High turnover rates

📈Difficulty adapting to changing market conditions

The average tenure for a sales rep is currently just 18 months, leading to a significant loss of intellectual capital, and changes that don’t look good to clients.

Client view:

“If you can’t keep your #1 client, your people, how will you care for mine?”
