The sales manager manifesto: One of the most important members of a company and a sales organization is the first-line sales manager. This person leads a team of sales professionals carrying quota who only make money when they generate pipeline, bring in new customers in the door, and close business. The first-line sales manager is there to make every rep exceed their quota.
First-line sales managers are at the pulse of what’s going on in the business. They know what’s working and they know what isn’t working. Sales managers are the backbone of every sales organization. They make it happen. They are the unsung heroes of corporations wearing so many hats. I’ve written a whole book for sales managers that you can read and explore.
You can also watch my short, fun tribute video for sales managers. Watch it here.
How are we going to challenge ourselves to be the best sales managers on the planet?
How are we going to be leaders who deliver revenue while making our teams better?
How are we going to inspire our teams to exceed their goals and do great things?
