The Missing Link in Sales Performance

For twenty years I have performed sales seminars and training around the world. The emphasis from most companies and sales reps in those companies tends to be on sales techniques. It's hard to be effective teaching sales techniques to the wrong person. Although I believe that salespeople are made not born, it's a lot easier to make a superstar salesperson if they have the right make up to begin with. It's hard to make hero's out of zero's. The information in Tograding for sales allows managers, executives and companies to recruit, interview, hire and coach the right salespeople in the right way. The information in this book will dramatically reduce your failure rate in hiring the wrong salesperson and will greatly enhance the success ratio when you do make a correct hiring decision. [...]

A solid short guide to building a better sales team by hiring better salespeople

This book teaches the simple truth that if you hire better salespeople you will get more high quality sales. The authors teach you how to do that and how to coach them to be even better. You will learn how to analyze your sales team and what to do with what you learn. The authors show you how to recruit and hire the best salespeople and provide you with forms, checklists, and key techniques on how to accomplish your purposes. Coaching your salespeople is also very important and this book gives you a chapter on how to do that. The last chapter provides you with the way to get started with the topgrading process and four appendices that provide the means to scorecard your current sales reps, a career history form so you can understand what your salespeople and prospective salespeople have done, and forms for an interview checklist and reference checks. The last appendix lays out the numbers of how topgrading your sales team will make you more money. Very good. Reviewed by Craig Matteson, Ann Arbor, MI
