Conventional Sales Training – Not An Investment Worth Your BudgetSales form the backbone of any business, no matter how big or small the company is.Not just profit making entities, sales is equally important for non-profit organizations,government bodies and educational institutes.

A lot of organizations arrange workshops andseminars to arrange for a formal training for its sales force. These workshops can lastfrom one day to anywhere between two to twenty days. Usually, these workshops areorganized outside the premises of the organization which can be in a hotel, in aconference hall in some kind of a community centre or even outside in the open in aplanned excursion. The idea behind such planned off-sites is to keep employees mindsaway from their daily concerns and issues, so that they can focus whole-heartedly in thetraining program and derive maximum benefits from it.But it has been noticed that while such off-site training programs do help to someextent, but the knowledge imparted is not fully taken in or applied when it comes todaily routine work such as client meetings, cold calls, conversions etc. The main reasonbehind this is, by the time the employees return to the daily grind, they either forgetsome of the knowledge acquired or they tend to lose out on the tips and techniqueslearnt while training. After clearing their backlog work that got accumulated while they
