Setting Up Your Sales Team

Course Overview

NOTE: This Fast Track course on Setting Up Your Sales Team includes the content from our two Bite-Sized courses:

  • Creating an Effective Sales Team
  • Enabling Your Sales Team to Win

It also includes additional Introduction and Wrap Up units, and an Assessment Test.

In our Setting Up Your Sales Team course, you'll get a fundamental understanding of what makes a sales manager, and a sales team, effective. And how to set up the structure you need for success.

We start with an overview of what sales management is - and what its requirements are.Then we explain what makes a sales team effective - in other words, what you should be looking for. Next, you'll learn how to structure a star sales team, using one of the models we outline, tailored to your own situation. We then give you a five step process for making sure the structure you adopt is the right one, before finishing with a lesson on managing Hunters and Farmers - those two very different, but essential, personalities in your team.

This course will enable you to create a structure for your sales team that maximizes its effectiveness - and the sales you all achieve.
