Professional Sales Management
Understanding the roles and responsibilities of a professional and productive sales manager
Who is this workshop for?
This two-day workshop is for anyone in sales management, ranging from those in (or about to enter into) their first sales management role to those more experienced sales managers who want to refresh themselves with productive sales management best practice.
What does the workshop focus on?
This workshop utilises Wiley’s Everything DiSC management profile.
Its core focus is on helping manager's better understand their own behavioural style and those of the people they lead.
Sales managers often rise to a management role from a successful career in sales, but the skills required of a successful sales manager are quite different than the skills of a successful salesperson, which is the key focus of this 2-day workshop.
This workshop will enable delegates to have a clear understanding of the successful sales manager's responsibilities and how to become more effective in their roles.

Lead a successful sales team

Do they need to do anything before they attend?
Prior to the workshop attendees will be asked to complete an online Everything DiSC Management profile assessment.
On completing the assessment, they will receive their Everything DiSC Management Profile, designed to enable them to better understand their natural leadership style and how to adapt and stretch to their team member's natural behavioural style. Their profile will be used as their personal reference point during the workshop.
How many people can attend?
The Professional Sales Management workshop is designed to accommodate between 6 to 12 people.
