Course Detail


Achieve Better Results through Effective Business Team Alignment

Why You Should Attend This Course:

"Missed opportunities. Missed targets. Missed results. Misunderstanding. Miscommunication. Misfiring" ; all these buzz words are altogether too familiar.

When a company doesn t deliver desired results, finger-pointing , the blame game and other well-worn scapegoats often surface and line the litany of excuses to justify when and why sales teams miss their targets.

Ironically, most of what we hear, which management might dismiss as mere excuses are in reality intrinsic symptoms of a much deeper and common malaise, a corporate illness , if effectively understood and addressed, can be as effectively addressed & potentially remedied like the common cold or flu .

This workshop will focus on building understanding, appreciation of what it takes to build sales & marketing team alignment in a given organization.
