The Paradox of Sales Coaching
An Integrity Solutions Research Brief
Coaching is one of the hottest topics in business today, and for good reason. Many organizations have come to learn that it’s critical for building skills and capacity. In fact, coaching is often cited as one of the top levers at hand for improving performance and driving growth. What’s more, coaching is an important tool for developing excellence with sales teams.
So, why is coaching so often ignored, practiced unevenly, misunderstood or poorly executed?
There’s a critical paradox around sales coaching: It clearly boosts sales performance, and many sales leaders know that it’s important—and yet, despite this awareness, many still don’t place a priority on consistent coaching.
