Richardson Sales Performance’s Sales Management and Coaching Training Programme

The Sales Management and Coaching training programme provides an overview of common sales management challenges and teaches sales managers to overcome them. In the training programme, your sales management team learns how to analyse opportunities and then engage their sellers in an effective opportunity review coaching conversations.

They learn how to perform a pipeline review to identify the potential yield of current opportunities, recognise stuck opportunities, and find ways to close gaps in individual seller’s pipes.

Your sales managers will also develop skills and a plan to support the implementation of new processes and methodologies across the organisation. The result is a repeatable process illustrated in the image below.

To ensure consistent achievement of goals, sales professionals must develop and manage a volume of potential business sufficient to produce desired results within an allotted time. The Sales Management programme includes analysis tools that help managers to evaluate the size, quality and velocity of sales professionals’ pipelines and opportunities efficiently, and determine what specific actions are required to ensure confidence in surpassing sales objectives.
