New Survey Highlights Sales Management Skills and Development Priorities

October 14, 2014 – Star Solutions That Achieve Results Inc. (STAR Results) has launched its global 2015 STAR Sales Manager Survey.

The Sales Manager Survey seeks opinions and perceptions from sales executives and leaders around the world on key skills and development priorities for sales managers.

The goal of the study is to help organizations better meet the developmental gaps of their frontline sales managers. The survey is seeking feedback from more than 2000 sales leaders in varying industries around the world.

“For companies to achieve better sales results they need to invest their resources into the proper training, support and coaching of their sales managers,” said Steven Rosen, founder of STAR Results. “Frontline sales managers are the key to unlocking the performance of the sales organization.”

The targeted audience for completing this survey is:

  • VP of Sales
  • Business Unit Managers/Directors
  • National Sales Managers/Directors
  • Regional Sales Directors
  • Front Line Sales Managers
  • Trainers

Rosen observed that sales organizations invest millions of dollars on sales training, yet very little investment on their sales managers who develop top salespeople. It isn’t surprising to see that so many sales managers are failing to deliver the results their companies expect.

“Most sales managers are selected for management because they are excellent salespeople but few are adequately prepared to help their sales team truly realize their potential,” said Rosen. “It’s assumed that because they can do it themselves, they can easily make the switch to getting the best out of others. But that’s just not true.”
