What qualities make sales leaders successful? There are several different ways to successfully lead a sales team. Some sales managers are like drill sergeants, the ultimate task masters set on transforming each sales rep into a singular, elite force. Other sales managers lead from the trenches, taking calls right along with SDRs, and taking the […]
Not long ago, when we were putting together our eBook The Complete Guide to Inside Sales Analytics, I reached out to several sales experts and asked them what they thought the most underrated sales metric was. One of the sales leaders I spoke with was Doug Landis, VP of Sales Productivity over at Box. He mentioned that not nearly enough sales […]
The days of long ramp periods for sales reps are coming to an end. In this highly competitive sales landscape, there’s little time to wait. That’s why it’s absolutely vital for sales managers to help reps drive pipeline and win revenue as fast as humanly possible. So how can inside sales managers help reps hit the ground running? In […]
During a leadership program I was facilitating in Milan, Italy, we were talking about how managers try to motivate people through the use of bonuses or incentives. The frustration quickly rose to a head in the room, as the managers shared how much they struggle with finding a way to continually motivate each person on […]
Today’s competitive sales environment requires an advantage to win.

I recently read that the average tenure of an inside sales manager is just 18 months. It’s a staggeringly low timeframe considering that by Forrester’s estimate, we CMOs – who once had the least job stability in SaaS – stay in their jobs for five years. That began a quest to find out what challenges sales leaders are facing. We […]
Are you a sales coach or a babysitter? Coaches identify areas for improvement and give reps the tools (both figurative and literal) to reach new goals. Coaches earn their team’s respect. They play the dual roles of team member and leader. And the best coaches make hard work seem fun. Babysitters, on the other hand, […]
Self-improvement guru Tony Robbins once said “successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.” If you’ve just taken over an inside sales team, consider making this quote your mantra. We recently published an eBook entitled The 90-Day Inside Sales Success Plan. Inside, we interviewed some of the world’s top sales trainers, authors and executives. […]
Far too often, inside sales reps see their manager as the equivalent of a traffic cop hanging around waiting to hand out tickets. But this should virtually never be the case. As an inside sales manager, it shouldn’t be your job to inspire fear. Quotas exist so that salespeople know what is expected of them. And believe me, […]
