Training Program for Sales Manager
Winning by Design CEO Dominique Levin says that sales managers are critical for the success of recurring revenue companies. They are the ones charged with onboarding new members of the team and getting them up to speed as quickly as possible. They serve as coaches, helping account executives of all levels hone their skills. And they help the entire team understand the most effective ways of reaching customers. “The only way these behaviors are going to stick is if these concepts come back at every one-on-one or team meeting a manager has,” Levin says. “At the end of the day, it’s all about the frontline managers.”
On top of that, Levin says, sales managers are a CEO’s most effective channel for communicating the company’s goals for the future. “Team leaders and frontline managers have the biggest impact when it comes to translating your strategy into practice,” she said in a recent interview with ValientCEO. “Your crew will take their lead from their direct team lead, not from you.”
But according to Levin, many sales managers have never been trained on how to pass along the skills that their sales reps need. In the past, companies rarely put time, money, and effort into training programs for sales managers. But that seems to be changing. “That’s a missing link that we see companies small and large starting to invest in,” she says.
Why is training for sales managers so crucial for a recurring revenue company’s long-term success? The truth is that many of the sales managers who are promoted internally struggle with their new roles. The Harvard Business Review reports that close to a third of those who move up to leadership positions within their companies don’t have all of the skills to do the job. That shows why strategic sales management courses are so important. It provides those who have recently been promoted to leadership positions, as well as those who have shown an interest in moving up within their organizations, with the skills they need to lead their teams.
Winning by Design offers online sales management courses that give sales managers — both those that are new to the job and those who want to move up in the ranks — the tools they need in today’s marketplace. Britta Liesbrock, Head of Customer Relations at d.velop, says that she appreciated the “well-structured and interactive training” offered for sales managers through Winning by Design. “We needed to develop and expand the coaching of our salespeople,” she said. “Winning by Design helped us get familiar with their frameworks and integrate them successfully in our company.”
Best Sales Manager Training
When you’re seeking out the best sales manager training, consider Winning by Design. Our Revenue Academy has a sales management training program designed with today’s sales professionals in mind. Managing for Impact, a newly updated and expanded course, develops foundational coaching skills for managers of sales and customer success teams. Managing for Impact gives leaders the techniques they need to be effective coaches and help their teams improve their own skills and implement new process initiatives.
Heba Dandsh, a Learning and Development Consultant, said earning her certification in the Managing for Impact course left her feeling energized. “My biggest takeaway that I’m planning on applying going forward is to be an involved leader,” she said. “That means supporting my team with the necessary knowledge and skills so they can flourish in their roles and be set up for success.”
After taking Managing for Impact, many sales managers move on to Managing for Leadership. The second course in this learning track is designed to build on the skills that sales managers already have. The eight-hour course starts with revenue metrics, focusing on which ones are most important and how to use them to set clear goals for a sales team. It also helps managers create a weekly, monthly, and quarterly coaching cadence to make sure their team continues to hone their own skills and explains how scorecards can help their team make more effective sales calls.
Rich Fetter, Director of Customer Success at Talkwalker, said that Winning by Design offers one of the best online sales management courses he’s come across. “The content that was covered was perfect for anyone who is a manager,” said Fetter. “Winning by Design offers a consistent approach to managing clients and managing a team effectively, especially in a remote environment.”
These sales manager training topics are an ideal introduction to Revenue Architecture, which explains the principles of recurring revenue and how to apply them to your business. Geared toward top-level executives, it’s also a good choice for those who are moving into revenue leadership positions. More than 1,000 people have already taken the Revenue Architecture course, which dives deep into how your business can apply the right go-to-market model.
Joyce Corbin, Director of RevOps at Screencastify, said she was impressed by how much material the course was able to cover in a short amount of time. “We learned all about the fundamental models for sustainable growth that make up the Recurring Revenue Operating Model,” she said. “I now have so many resources, blueprints, and frameworks at my disposal. I cannot wait to be able to start applying everything I’ve learned.”
