What makes a great sales leader? In many organisations, the process of finding a suitable person for this role, goes something like this; A sales person gains a reputation for being a high achiever, consistently hitting their targets and outperforms their peers. The leadership team takes notice of this, and thinks, “Let’s recreate their magic by promoting them to a sales leader”.
Logically this would seem like a sensible approach, right? Put the high performer in charge of the others. However, in our experience this is a flawed assumption, because great sales people do not automatically make great sales leaders and vice versa. Effective leadership requires a totally different set of skills and behaviours.
So whether you are an experienced, new or aspiring leader in the world of sales, this highly interactive and thought provoking 2 day course is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to lead and inspire a high performing sales team.

The Sales Leader Academy has been created for sales professionals by a sales professional, it focuses on growing confidence and capabilities, as well as providing participants with a wide range of pragmatic tools that can be immediately implemented within any sales environment.
Within the workshop we cover 3 main modules of sales leadership;
Here we examine the attributes of a high performing sales leader, and through the use of a self awareness assessment and 360 degree feedback gathered ahead of the workshop, participants gain a realistic view of their existing leadership skills and shortcomings, this enables a personal action plan to be created that supports their ongoing development.
Managing others and their performance is a core responsibility of a sales leader, in module 2 we explore how this can be achieved.
Through a series of interactive exercises and discussions we share a variety of techniques for effectively leading others, such as; a collaborative structure for effective goal setting, a powerful tool for identifying the motivational needs of others, coaching and feedback frameworks and a method for confidently addressing under performance.
Leading High Performing Teams
The final module of the Sales Leader Academy focuses on how to create and sustain a culture of high performance within a team. We share credible research which identifies the common characteristics that can found within a team who performance at an optimum level consistently. Participants reflect on how their team(s) measure up against this, establishing successes and any opportunities for development.
