What makes a good Sales Manager? And how can you find it? That is the question.
Here, at Donau Consult Group, we can truly say that it takes a good one to know one! And that shows confidence. Confidence is what turns a good Sales Manager into a great one. Confidence means understanding your strengths and your weaknesses. A good Sales Manager shows courage and ambition, is driven to find new ways to motivate the team. They are grate listeners and they actively engage the people they are talking to.
A Sales Manager, or Sales Department Manager, is responsible for overseeing daily operations in the sales department. Their duties include hiring and training sales staff, relaying information from upper management to department staff about sales quotas and generating leads to divide among Sales Representatives.
Good time management habits maximize the manager’s and the team’s ability to reach goals. Great Sales Managers set clear priorities and goals, eliminating demands that don’t help drive revenue and enabling their teams to make the most of their time by focusing on activities that are aligned with important goals.
Sales Managers take responsibility for their team’s success, starting with hiring the best talent they can find. Great Sales Managers look for people who fit well with the organization, and they aren’t afraid to hire people who are actually better than they are. They work to develop themselves, their teams and find ways to motivate and inspire their people to strive for excellence.
