with Jason Jordan
Jason Jordan is my guest in the LockerRoom this week. Jason is the co-author of “Cracking the Sales Management Code,” the first operating manual for sales managers. We’ll talk about sales, managing salespeople, and why some sale managers are far more effective than others.
Cracking the Sales Management Code is based on “groundbreaking research into how world-class companies measure and manage their sales forces.” It is described as a book that “reveals the gears and levers that actually control sales results.” Join me and Jordan as we discuss what makes a great salesperson, and why a great sales manager is a critical part of the equation.
Each and every week, Miles introduces us to yet another great online tool. Make sure you check in this week to see what’s on tap — and make sure you find Miles, the Web Tools Guy at www.fillthefunnel.com.
