Managing a sales team can be intimidating and challenging.

As a sales manager, your success depends on your team’s ability to meet performance goals. But sometimes, it’s hard to control and motivate reps.

Why is my team not making their targets?
Why aren’t they filling the pipeline?
Why does it take a lot of time and effort to close a sale?

We browsed around at looked at a few reasons that might be holding you back.


Do you have a  sales pipeline?

By creating clear procedures at every stage of the pipeline, your team has a better chance of performing consistently and meeting their sales targets.

An effective sales pipeline will equip sales reps and teams to manage the often complex processes required to close deals. 


Do you qualify your leads?

One of the most common reasons why sales teams under perform is the lack of a formal prospect qualification process—or the lack of a sales process altogether.

Helping your team put their efforts where they count can make all the difference. 


Is your team motivated?

Different people need to be managed differently – figure out what motivates each of them and push those buttons to develop better sales people overall.

Sometimes the issue is the employees themselves, but many times something outside their control is to blame
