Sales Management Training Course
Great sales management is at the heart of every successful sales unit, however, this role requires a very different set of skills and knowledge on top of the sales experience, that most people have. The modern sales manager has to be both an expert in data, people and of course sales and marketing. This course provides a perfect foundation for anyone new to sales management, in addition to a refresher for existing managers looking to re-energise their sales.
The modern sales manager is the backbone of every sales team with multiple responsibilities. This course covers the most common areas of responsibilities of Sales Management with practical, hands on strategies for managing a modern sales team.
In addition to all the systems and processes Sales Managers set the performance and expectation levels of the sales team.
Without good sales management a culture of “satisfactory under-performance” will pervade which means good sales people will leave and under-performing sales people will stay.
The Sales Manager is arguably the most important part of the sales team.
This course is perfect for salespeople who are about to make the step up into a more senior role and existing sales managers looking to upgrade their skills. In addition this course is perfect for Entrepreneurs and Business Owners who are managing their own teams of salespeople, or those about to hire their first sales reps.

Unlike traditional training companies, we believe people learn by doing rather than following theory in text books in a classroom.
We use a workshop methodology in our sales training programmes where we have a blended mix of theory where appropriate , whilst focussing the majority of the time on real life sales challenges.
Attendees are guided through each session and individually undertake real life sales scenarios.
This ensures each attendee remains engaged and learning in a positive and supportive environment.
All our training is delivered via the “work based learning” model. This means that we work with teams to set up live sales management objectives bespoke to their organisation, in order that participants are given opportunities to use their new skills and knowledge.
This model ensures that attendees retain as much of the information as possible. We run this in parallel with live management coaching which helps participants with existing challenges and implementing the new skills they learn.
This course can be delivered:
- On site as a two day bootcamp (dependant on Covid restrictions). Minimum 5 people and additional travel charges may apply.
- Remotely via 4 x half day workshops. Dates and times confirmed on booking.
- Remotely via 6 x 90 minute virtual training sessions delivered live, on the first three calendar weeks of every month. After booking you are automatically added to the next course which starts on the first Thursday of every calendar month.
During the training period each participant has a access to a dedicated coach via telephone, email and live chat.
Option 3 – the open classes run every month and are restricted to 12 participants to ensure classes are not overcrowded.
In addition, we do not allow more than 3 participants from any one company so the session time is never dominated by one organisation.
Should you require more than 3 places we are happy to schedule a separate online class at no extra charge.
