Sales Management Program

A successful sales manager’s job is to provide clear direction and support to his/her team enabling them to excel and develop to reach their full potential.  Sales managers often rise to this position from a successful career in sales. But the skills required of a successful sales manager are quite different than the skills of a sales person which is one of the key points that this program will be focusing on.
