Breaking the performance code
The definitive playbook for effective sales coaching, based on the proven principles of the Sandler Selling System.
There is no one-size-fits-all sales coaching model. There are only approaches that have been shown to be successful in particular situations. Acting as coach, the manager must identify each individual salesperson's personal "success code" and use that code to unlock the salesperson's potential for success. It is always up to the coach to choose the right approach for the salesperson and the situation. In this sense, effective sales coaching is a series of adjustments to particular people and circumstances.
The Sales Coach’s Playbook offers an overview of the sales coaching practices the best Sandler-trained sales coaches have found to be most effective over the past four decades, and an in-depth discussion of the situations where they are most likely to be useful. This revised second edition features powerful true stories of remarkable personal and professional turnarounds made possible by Bartlett’s playbook.
“There is a difference between coaching and managing sales professionals. If you don’t understand the distinction, you are not getting the most out of your sales team. This book is a great guide to learning to coach and be coached. It speaks of the commitment required to be a good coach. The book is filled with great stories and anecdotes. It is a great read that is easy to understand and implement. But you need commitment to succeed.”
