The unemployment rate is the lowest it's been since 2001, and the percentage of prime working age adults who are employed is the highest it’s been since 2008.

Culture is what your reps are doing when no one is looking.  Top companies don’t leave their learning and development to chance.  They seek out innovative ways to foster a sales coaching culture that creates consistency and accountability at scale.  In this fast moving session, Steve Richard from ExecVision will take you step by step through the best practices of sales coaching.  You will learn how to:

  • Form a clear ‘why’ that underpins your coaching program including quantitative and qualitative measures of success
  • Use metrics as a diagnostic to inform coaching
  • Gain agreement on what ‘good’ looks like for your different call types which will turn into your call coaching scorecards
  • Create a positive, productive call coaching culture that reps love while eliminating defensiveness
  • Apply lessons from neuroscience for how and when to coach
  • Coach using the observe, describe, prescribe model
  • Foster an environment of self-assessment and peer coaching to ease the burden on managers to do all the coaching
  • Harness the power of the habit loop to change rep behavior
  • Calibrate by having managers independently listen to and score calls for different skills, then compare scores
  • Leverage research on who to coach and how to handle reps who reject coaching to make better use of your time

In fact, recent research shows that 76% of sales leaders believe coaching to be critical to their team’s success. Yet the reality is most still aren’t doing it. And those that are typically don’t coach often enough, will confuse “managing the numbers” with coaching and developing their team or have not been taught how to coach. So the default goes to “I don’t have time...”

 But the benefits and sales performance lift that organizations receive when prioritizing coaching and creating a support system and culture for sales coaching are undeniable. Join us for this interactive discussion, facilitated by Integrity Solutions CEO Mike Esterday.

You Will Gain:

 

-          The 5 drivers of coaching effectiveness

-          Not one, but three conversations of effective coaching

-          A simple and effective framework for coaching that you can begin to use the next day

-          The critical importance of leaders expecting and believing their people can continually achieve              more in effectively coaching teams.

Space is limited to 50 attendees so be sure to register early as this event will fill up quickly.
