How do you measure the impact of sales coaching?

Posted by Carole Mahoney  6/2/17 9:58 AM

This was a question that a VP of Sales asked me recently.  But this wasn’t the first one he asked. It started with him saying that his biggest challenge was ‘coaching the coaches’. In his opinion, his team is ‘smart, hardworking and coachable’ but having been worked up through the system, don’t have any leadership experience. And since this is his first time leading leaders, it’s ‘unchartered territory’ and he didn’t want to ‘short change the team with the gaps in his skillset’.

How to improve your decision making to sell better

Posted by Carole Mahoney  5/19/17 9:41 AM

I don’t enjoy shopping and it’s all my mom’s fault. It felt like every weekend was another shopping adventure. Saturday mornings while my sister and I did our chores, she surfed the flyers for sales, coupons, etc. The driving to multiple stores, wandering up and down the aisles, comparing prices, features and benefits was mind numbing to me. Only to end up back at one of the first stores to get the thing she had to have.

Sales therapy

Posted by Carole Mahoney  5/17/17 10:42 AM

A few months ago I had beers and wings with Mark Roberge after he spoke at the Boston Enterprise Sales meetup. When I shared with him what Rick and I were doing with clients and the results we were getting he said, “You’re like a sales therapist!”

I cringed a little because I am not a psychologist and from the conversations I was having with VP of Sales and growing start-up founders, that was too fluffy and intrinsic for them. When I shared that with Mark he said something like, “If I were a VP of Sales and could make that kind of investment to get that kind of return, it would be a no-brainer.”

How are sales lost to no decision?

Posted by Carole Mahoney  5/10/17 4:35 PM

This was the topic on this week’s #livesaleslab and it was inspired from several different places. First, from sales people asking us, “Why do my prospects disappear after the proposal?”. Then from current clients wondering, “Where is the best place to look to find some immediate sales?” And then also from coaching conversations where sales people were struggling to talk with decision makers, uncover urgency, and find budget.
