Sour Cream Rises to the Top

In challenging times, average sales managers tend to get exposed -- they can't hide. So why is the average tenure of a sales leader less than 18 months?

The reason for failure is simply that many sales leaders don't fully understand what their real job is, or have never been trained effectively to lead, manage and motivate their organizations.

The Top Sales Experts Roundtable, which takes place this Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 11 a.m. Eastern time, will address the challenges of sales management with a prescriptive approach to defining the duties and responsibilities of the position. I and four of the top sales leadership coaches in the world will discuss what really separates top sales leaders from the sour cream.

I'll be joined by Dave Brock, founder and CEO of Partners in Excellence; Steven Rosen, founder and CEO of Star Results; Danita Bye, founder and CEO of Sales Growth Specialists; and Jonathan Farrington, chairman of The Sales Corporation.

So are you ready for 2010? The sales "holy grail" of sustainable increases in revenue and profits --achieved consistently, reliably and by design -- is achievable. Join us to discover how! Reserve your complimentary spot at the roundtable here.
