We’re nearly three months into 2015. Have your New Year’s resolutions begun to fade? Are your best intentions falling by the wayside? If so, you’re not alone. It doesn’t take too long for the gyms to empty out and healthy eating “cheat” days to become more and more frequent.  However, while personal goals may be slipping a bit, it is important to stay true to your professional resolutions. It may seem like a chore now and be so easy to fall back into your old routines, but staying committed to your resolution of finding innovative solutions to support your sales team will help you meet end of year financial goals and eliminate some of that the end of year quota rush agita.

In the corporate community, the primary focus for the majority of companies is on identifying, recruiting, training and retaining top and “key-to-retain” talent. Many companies are excellent in the front-end activity, but are very short-sighted in the back-end foundational initiatives such as coaching, mentoring and engagement of that talent, which are the true retainer solutions.
