What is holding them back from achieving better results? Is it their skill-sets, their mind-set, the systems and processes they are required to use, their manager/mentor/coach, the market or a combination of all of the above (or something else)?
There are hidden sales weaknesses that are preventing even the best sales teams from hitting their targets and going on to realise their full potential. There are a variety of reasons/excuses that are offered up to explain away underperforming sales teams around the world. The truth is, the only thing that matters is the fact they are not hitting their targets and you need to know why and what you can do about it?
Some key questions to consider
- Do they have a well-constructed sales methodology that they understand deeply and actually follow consistently which allows them to stay on track and proactively manage objections?
- Sales management always have their own strengths and weaknesses and are their individual weaknesses being magnified through the rest of the sales team?
- Is there a misalignment between the CEO, the business leaders in charge of championing that message and those at the front line that have to make it turn into some meaningful daily actions at the coal face?
- Is there a clear differentiated value that can be leveraged over your competition?
- Are the sales team engaged with the correct people inside their prospective client’s organisation to take advantage of that differentiated value?
There are these and so many more questions to consider.
