7 leadership Skills That Every Sales Manager Need to Know

  1. 1. By, Mr. Mihir Shah (India's Top Rated Award Winning Sales Trainer) 7 Leadership Skills That Every Sales Manager Need To Know Yatharth Marketing Solutions
  2. 2. YatharthMarketingSolutions Key Points Managers have to take the leader’s role in any field of work. Managers have to make sure that there is unity. Sales managers, on the other hand, have an extended amount of issues. Being the leader of the Sales team is regarded as the toughest job in an organization. The toughness comes from the workload and handling of the salesmen. Boosting Sales Employees. Be a Coach. Be Transparent. Set an Example. Set Achievable Goals. Listen to Your Sales Employees. Appreciate Your Sale Team’s Success.
  3. 3. YatharthMarketingSolutions Boosting Sales employees Your Sales employees are the biggest asset of an organization. If the behavior of the sales team is low the sales results will below.  As the sales manager, you have to frequently boost your sales team to bring out their best. By doing this the sales team will also feel motivated to work harder. A happy sales team gets good results and to make the sales team happy, the Sales Manager has to do his best. As a leader of a pack, you have to make your sales team employees confident and prepare them for any situation.
  4. 4. YatharthMarketingSolutions Salesmen do face trouble at times in their work process. When they face troubles like these, they look around for someone to help them.  If you are the Sales team Manager it is your duty to be the first coach to your salesmen. If the Salesmen do not find the solutions to their problem, after your help, then you look at sales training as an option. When a sales manager becomes a coach to his Sales team, the Salespeople feel safer and secure. When your salespeople feel secure with you that means you are a good leader.  For e.g., There is a problem between two of your salesmen about a certain issue. They are not working as a team. Your duty as the Sales Manager is to sit down with the two and clear out their indifferences. Be a Coach
  5. 5. YatharthMarketingSolutions Be Transparent Being transparent as a sales manager is important as only then your sales team will know what is happening. If you want to be a good leader you need to know how much transparency is required.  Be transparent about all the sales deals or sales leads. You need to keep things closed if there are major setbacks. As a leader, you need such major setbacks at the correct time.
  6. 6. YatharthMarketingSolutions All Salesmen look for inspiration. Now imagine if their inspiration is their sales manager himself. It is a proud moment for the Sales team as well as the sales manager.  As a leader, you have to lead from the front and set a benchmark for your salesmen. Only then will your salesmen understand what is your caliber and what you expect from them.  It is like in a cricket team, when the captain is giving his 100% on the field, then even his teammates start giving their best. The same way when your sales team sees you trying to close every sale lead into a sale lead, they put in the same efforts. This will not only get the best out of your Sales team, but it will also get the best out of yourself. It is a big plus point for the organization if something like this happens. Set an Example
  7. 7. Set Achievable Goals The sales goals you set as a Sales manager have to be achievable. With the goal being achievable, it does not mean it has to be a cakewalk for the Sales team.  Have achievable goals like converting 75% of Sale leads into Sale deals. You cannot have goals like, convert 100% of Sale deals into Sale deals. That can only happen on a bright sunny business day. YatharthMarketingSolutions
  8. 8. Listen to your Sales employees Salesmen like Sales leaders that listen to their ideas, problems, opinions, etc. It makes them realize that their manager is not self-centered and he does care of his staff. This feeling of understanding between The salesmen and the Sales manager.  There are a lot of benefits of listening to your Sales employees. It will get new ideas for selling. Your old ideas of sales will get a new look at it. The more ideas you listen to, the better your sales results will be. For example, you have just had a meeting where you have discussed a few previous selling techniques. As soon as the meeting gets done, a fresher Salesman comes up and gives you the best solution. Be appreciative and consider his idea. This will keep the New Salesman motivated to stay at your organization. He will realize that his talent is being heard too. YatharthMarketingSolutions
  9. 9. Appreciate Your Sale Team’s Success When a batsman has a good day on the cricket pitch, he waits to get appreciated for his performance. The same way Salesmen like to be appreciated for a good day of sales.  Every person likes special attention for something they have achieved. The salesman works very hard all day to get the maximum profits. At the end of that long tiring day, all he expects someone to do is, give him a tap on the back and say “well done”.
