Coaching Techniques That Accelerate Sales
At launchpad we believe the approach to motivate and reward sales professionals based on a single, one-dimensional outcome (closed revenue rewarded with financial payment) is no longer effective enough. In tough economic times, the lost time and high cost associated with the traditional hire and fire mentality has revealed to sales managers the need to rethink their approach, with many of them turning to behavioural motivation, the latest innovation in coaching techniques for sales professionals.
By redefining the parameters that govern sales team performance, we look at specific sales disciplines that yield systematic results with the influence of flair.
Launchpad has developed a system thinking training that has infused coaching techniques and sales channels methodologies.

What do you focus on to drive growth within your organisation? If one employee has the potential to spark a chain of positivity that revolutionises the organisation, imagine the cumulative effect of an effective team firing on all cylinders. Having a conducive atmosphere for learning encourages growth. To attain such utopic conditions your organisation must be intentional with an emphasis in:
Leadership style is the manner and approach of providing direction, implementing plans, and motivating people. As seen by the employees, it includes the total pattern of explicit and implicit actions performed by their leader (Newstrom, Davis, 1993).
When searching for leadership styles one can be overwhelmed with the variation, which are necessary and functional. Operationally, leaders utilise a mixture of the leadership styles to generate fantastic results. Launchpad has developed these Leadership Duo to juxtapose coaching and mentoring disciplines to enhance staff independence whilst embracing inter-dependence.
Goals and objectives are set, the team is buzzing with ideas, the energy level of enthusiasm is contagious, but how do you and your team navigate through the myriad of ideas into workable strategies?
