What’s the number one challenge of sales management?  Recruiting and hiring top talent. Where organizations have focused on quality hiring sales and revenue problems don’t exist, customer satisfaction levels are high and morale/culture is terrific.   While most sales organizations focus on creating a sales process to increase sales performance, they yet fail to develop a recruiting and interviewing process that attracts ensures they Hire the Best, Not the Best Available.  And then they wonder why their sales training and sales process didn’t work?   This book has been designed to assist you in improving your skills and in building the systems and mentality required to increase the performance of your sales team.  It is all about improving your odds.
