I've mentioned this many times. The job of a sales manager is one of the toughest jobs in the world. As with any job, it is a part of the success skills and knowledge, and part of it is the interior of the individual.
Effective sales managers do well for many different reasons; Likewise failed Sales Manager fail for many different reasons. If you are a sales manager or VP, ask yourself if any of these problems have always problems for you or others you know, are caused.
Error # 1: The sales manager is not wired for the job. How to find out there is a formula to meet to determine the ability of a seller.
There is no difference with the sales managers. Many ineffective sales managers come from the ranks of the sales team. Often, excellent seller, on the assumption that if they sell well, they are in the management of the sales will be good has been moved. Not so here.
The opportunities and internal wiring is completely different for the two professions. As a sales manager will not be able to perform in a position in this role, he will fail (and move the organization often with him.)
Error # 2: A good candidate for a position of sales management rarely get the chance. Poor performance in a sales role is a stumbling block to progress.

A sales manager who has very little special training is significantly impairs the ability of sellers to do their job and reduce competitiveness. organization
Error # 4: lack of an effective distribution system.
Football teams are not developed in the field, without a clear game to go running. Without a distribution, feels every seller and follows, it will do, when they try to salespeople through the sales process. There is no repeatable formula for success. Sometimes they will not get. Sell??, sometimes unfortunately there is no way to determine why they are not, or if the sale and then Coaching is a difficult task.
If the manager does not have a sales team with a clearly defined distribution system, players will get to waste the skills of your competitors.
Error # 5: Lack of an effective recruitment process. Gut instinct and speculation in the election will be your ability to restrict the right choice. And to comply with a system for your sales team breakdown is important, so is the use of an effective recruitment system.

Remember, it is the sales manager for making responsibility. Accurate judgments about hiring new salespeople and without a defined process with objective measurements, hiring decisions ultimately a toss-up.
Error # 6 - Lack of understanding of the concept of coaching. Management, spreadsheets, operational problems, etc. :. As a sales manager sees himself as strictly a manager, it can easily be controlled by the administrative functions of the job
