How To Deliver Sales Coaching Results
Forrester's Three-Step Approach To Engineering Successful Sales Coaching Initiatives
November 11, 2010
Why Read This Report
Sales coaching initiatives are rarely planned or executed with rigor. The result? Sales team members don't realize the benefit from quality coaching conversations, and sales coaches lose interest. In our research interviews, salespeople told us they don't credit sales coaching initiatives with helping them sell, and sales coaches said they don't view sales coaching initiatives as strategic. To ensure that your sales coaching initiatives deliver results, Forrester recommends following a three-step approach to engineering sales coaching initiatives that produce tailored — and effective — sales coaching conversations at your organization.
