How to get the most out of your sales team

Sales Effectiveness

Making your team more effective will lead to more sales.

When you want to get greater performance from your Sales team, it is wise to take a step back and really look at what you have.

All too often, Sales Leaders and even Business Leaders tend to look at the people as the most obvious starting point.

Whilst this can give some level of insight, it doesn’t show the full picture. Successful selling isn’t just about being able to convince the customer to buy (although that is important).

Our approach

To gain a true understanding, you need to start at the top and work down into the detail.

  1. What does your market look like?
  2. Who are the key customers?
  3. What do they want?
  4. Who are the competitors?
  5. What is your best route to market?
  6. What is the best way to align yourself to the market?
  7. How are you going to stand out from the crowd?
  8. What type of people do you need to be successful?
  9. What is your vision for the future?
  10. What are the key risks and how do you mitigate these?

These are just a few of the topics we help you to understand and address, when you work with Shoodan.

Over the years, we have built a proven Sales Effectiveness model that allows us to answers these questions (and more). We will work very closely with your team to leverage their expertise and gain their all-important buy-in to any proposed changes.

At Shoodan, we pride ourselves in focusing on the people, as well as the processes. We don’t “do it to you” – we “do it with you”. In our experience, this is the only way to deliver true change.

The diagram below shows our standard Sales Effectiveness methodology.

The Discovery phase is where we analyse your current situation. What is working well, what isn’t and where the opportunities for improvement are. We use the output of this phase as the content for the first of four workshops, the Strategy Review.  

Each workshop feeds of off the previous one, ultimately resulting in a detailed implementation plan to deliver the changes that have been agreed by the relevant stakeholders, during the various workshops. At this point, we can continue to work with you to bring the plan to life or we can leave you to make the changes on your own – the choice is yours.
