Topic: ‘Building a Successful Sales Culture”

If you're in the business to business sales world, you depend a lot on your team to collaborate, close sales and to make you money. I am betting that you have invested heavily in making sure your sales people understand the sales process, they understand the product they are selling, and the value that it adds. They can probably nail their sales pitch better than Jerry McGuire.

All this means little though, if you have a toxic, dysfunctional sales culture. The collective sum of the attitudes, values, beliefs and habits that characterize your team will determine your success in the end.

The Harvard Businees Review found that companies with a positive culture increase operating income by as much as nineteen percent and earnings by more than 28 percent.
