A lot of small businesses struggle with employee development. If you train people and they leave, it hurts. If you don’t train them and they stay, it hurts even more! When thinking about employee development, ask yourself this one question: Does my organization consistently contribute to the growth of its people in a manner that leads to positive results for them and the company?

When it comes to recruiting, hiring, and retaining great sales talent -- few things are more persuasive and important than maintaining a competitive sales compensation plan.

It’s a fact -- salespeople prefer making “warm calls” to “cold calls,” and they always will. Fortunately, if you’ve got a LinkedIn account and a few active connections, you’re in a good position to use the networking site to elicit powerful referrals that make a “warm” call a whole lot easier to execute. Here are two strategies to consider.

What is social selling? It’s one of those terms you probably hear a lot but may not be able to define. At Sandler Training, we define social selling as: “Using online networks and resources to add more prospects, opportunities, and information to your sales pipeline.”

“Despite some opinions, salespeople do have a ‘Bill of Rights.’ “ Many years ago, David Sandler -- a sales training and personal development pioneer -- summarized the inalienable rights all salespeople hold.

Why it’s better to raise (and address) potential problems before a prospective buyer notices them. Have you ever lost a sale because of a problem you could have and probably should have dealt with earlier in the sales process? Have you ever lost a customer because you waited too long to tell them about a delay or defect? If you know a problem is going to blow up in your face, defuse it now.

Stress is a critical part of the human experience. It’s your body’s reaction to extreme environmental changes, a heightened sense of danger, or emotional anxiety. Your body has three ways of dealing with stress: fight, flight or freeze. All of these can be good, if you’re in the path of an oncoming car, need a boost of adrenaline for a sporting competition, or you are suddenly face-to-face with a grizzly bear.
