Can Pharma’s Woes be Tied to Poor Business Acumen?

Steven Rosen

The Pharmaceutical Industry has undergone enormous cha nge. The number of sales reps has declined significantly over the last 4 years. Declining sales has not only forced the industry to reduce the number of sales reps calling on physicians but has also created the need to better focus on customer needs. The days of adding sales forces are dead and companies are struggling to find ways to deliver value to their customers.

Get on the Podium in 2012

Steven Rosen

Once upon a time, all sales managers were sales people. Most sales reps are type “A” personalities; they are driven and competitive. So it’s not surprising that when I sit down with sales managers to discuss their goals for the next year, one of the most common themes is to be the #1 region/area in the country. Sales managers still crave the opportunity to shine and be recognised in front of their peers.

Overcoming “Failure to Impact” Syndrome

Steven Rosen

This year was tough; next year’s sales prospects look even tougher. Your boss comes to you and says how can you sustain the sales force? Hire only top sales reps. Here are a couple of questions I would ask: Are your sales reps making a difference? Do your sales reps make impact on each call? Do they actually make a difference in the sales in their territory? How often do your sales managers go out in the field?

Sales middle managers – what motivates them the most?

Sales Training Connection

Sales Middle Managers. Middle managers are the key to implementing C-Suite strategic initiatives. In 2011, Wharton’s Ethan Mollick shared that mid-level managers could have greater impact on company performance than almost anyone else in an organization, yet they are “often overlooked and sometimes maligned.”. It is in these knowledge-intensive industries where variation in the abilities of middle managers has a particularly large impact on firm performance.

Why Good Salespeople Do Bad Things. And How to Avoid the Trap

Pipeliner

Too often, CXO’s sow stakeholder harm from headquarters, while the sales force does the dirty work out in the field. Were early car sales reps “sleazy” and “aggressive”? No one wags a shaming finger at former industry executives whose sales strategies created that ugly archetype. In fact, the putative pushy sales rep is more an artifact of his environment and less a reflection on his personal character. Importantly, not every revenue scandal involves the sales force.

Is Your Seller Maniacally Methodical?

Pipeliner

Someone who is maniacally methodical finds it painful to skip over the next sales task on the list, difficult to hit send on the proposal without a final review for typos/grammar and incomprehensible not to keep detailed notes because information a prospect shares today may be the exact nugget needed to close a sale 6 months later. One time a decision maker at a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company was on my client’s “please get me a meeting” wish list.

Think Robots Will Replace B2B Sales Reps?

No More Cold Calling

Eliot Burdett, CEO of Peak Sales Recruiting, explains why in this month’s guest post. Have B2B sales reps gone the way of CD players, the Rolodex, and analog radio—replaced by technology that gets the job done faster and better? Some take this to mean that our prospects and clients don’t really need us anymore—that the automation of selling has made B2B sales reps irrelevant. Here are five reasons you will not be replacing your sales reps with robots anytime soon: 1.
