Through The Eyes of the Sales Rep Assessment
Through The Eyes of the Sales Rep is a diagnostic tool that provides a unique look at sales management’s performance through the eyes of revenue-producing sales representatives. The assessment also examines some of the basic tools and resources sales representatives should have at their disposal within their respective organizations to increase sales productivity. The goal is to present a clear representation of where a Sales Manager needs improvement. The report is compiled by individual Sales Manager and also aggregated by department. We analyze the data and provide recommendations to the Senior Sales Executive. The data from this assessment serves as a foundation for formulating an educational curriculum for the year. NOTE: It is recommended this sales rep feedback be applied, reviewed, and surveyed annually so as to determine declination, stagnation, or growth.
Adaptive Leadership Assessment
An adaptive leadership style allows a sales leader to effectively use influence to create change across all levels of an organization. The adaptive leader is able to listen, coach and engage all associates to drive results. Our assessment helps an executive sales leader uncover the type of leadership culture within their team. Armed with this knowledge, the executive will be able to take advantage of EcSell Institute's vast resources to foster and improve a leadership culture.
COMPASS: Tools and Process Assessment
COMPASS provides a way for Sales Managers to measure the use and implementation of the proper sales programs, management processes, and tools that can lead to greater productivity. It provides an indepth look into a sales department’s strengths, opportunity areas, and gaps in the 6 Pillars of Sales Productivity Management Model. NOTE: This assessment will evolve as new technology tools and programs are brought to market and proven to drive greater sales performance.
