Hiring High-Potential Salespeople

And Starting Them Off Right

One and One-half Day Training Program

   To Be Successful in Sales Management, 
   You Must Start With Salespeople Who Will
   Make Sales Calls Instead of Making Excuses.

    Our DNA greatly impacts what we will ultimately become and, likewise . . .

    A salesperson's
DNA of Sales Success
predicts with statistically
    significant accuracy that person's likelihood of sales success.

   Managers and HR Professionals who participate in this cutting-edge
   workshop will learn:
    » What are the four common strains of sales-producing DNA shared by
        top sales performers,
    » How to measure this DNA in sales candidates, and
    » How to select those candidates who are most likely to be successful.

   Participants will also learn:

    » Why early sales production is critical to long-term sales success, and
    » How to onboard new hires and start them off right selling new business.

How to Minimize The Staggering Costs of Hiring Mistakes

The hard dollar costs
of a bad hire can easily reach two to three times the
annual remuneration of the position.

This means that hiring the wrong person for a position that pays $90,000 
can cost more than $270,000

The intangible costs can be even more devastating to the sales manager,
the sales organization, and the company as a whole. These costs include
such things as lack of respect, lost confidence, less self-esteem, impaired
reputation, and lowered career potential. In addition, morale and work-ethic
of the rest of the sales force can be virtually decimated when some
salespeople are obviously not producing, but are not held to the
standards of performance expected by everyone else.
