Developing Your Salespeople - A Proven Process to Take Them To The Next Level
Sales Workshop on September 17th

We all have detailed plans on how to grow our customers but how many of us have detailed plans on how to grow our salespeople?  A sales manager's job is not to grow sales but rather, to grow salespeople.  This workshop applies a proven model to people development and will allow you to create a customized and effective plan for each of your people.

 

Please join Michael Caron as he teaches sales leaders the 4 different categories of salesperson development, the unique leadership styles each requires and how to develop a plan to grow their own team members.
