Are you frustrated by your sales team’s performance?
Do a few top performers deliver most of your company’s sales, while the rest - the majority of your salespeople - barely earn their own keep… or even LOSE you money?
We refer to this sales performance gap as “The 80/20 Rule in sales team performance,” where just 20% of salespeople (the top performers) produce 80% of sales. The remaining 80% of salespeople produce just 20% of sales!
Why do so many organizations struggle with 80/20 sales team performance?
Our experience has been that 80/20 sales team performance results from weaknesses in specific sales management processes such as:
- Sales Recruiting: Does your sales recruiting process consistently produce top performers and strong middle performers, or is the quality of your hiring more "hit and miss?"
- Sales Compensation: Does your sales compensation plan motivate your salespeople to do what you want them to do, such as prospecting, achieving new business goals and maximizing penetration in each of their assigned accounts?
- Sales and Sales Management Training: Does your company have a well-defined new sales hire training process that enables new salespeople to become productive quickly? Also, do your training investments produce permanent changes in your people's behaviors, or do things go back to the way they were shortly after training has been completed?
- Sales Activity Inspection: Do you inspect the quantity and quality of your salespeople's activities to help them "get off on the right foot" when they are new and correct performance problems quickly and effectively?
Developing and implementing effective processes in each of these areas creates the foundation for a predictable, repeatable sales process that will enable your organization to grow sales and profits quickly!

What kind of assistance are you looking for?
Our business model is built to leverage technology (internet, web conferencing, teleconferencing) to deliver our services in the most cost-effective manner possible.
For some projects (such as strategic sales planning and in-depth sales or sales management training) you may prefer to have us to travel to your location for concentrated, in-person effort. However, in many cases we can accomplish your goals by working together remotely. This saves both time and money. Of course, the choice of how we work together is entirely up to you!
