This is the book every new and experienced sales manager wishes they had—before they accepted the job. The advice within acts as a 24/7 coach for beleaguered sales leaders dealing with perplexing dilemmas.

Drawn from the author’s experiences as a sales manager, sales management consultant, and coach, The Sales Leader’s Problem Solver offers guidance on solving common but difficult issues with the salesperson who:

• Sells inconsistently.

• Cheats on sales contests.

• Doesn’t enter data in the CRM.

• Calls only on the largest or easiest clients.

• Won’t prospect for new business.

By providing a consistent format to follow, Suzanne Paling will help any sales leader levelheadedly deal with any challenge by:

• Clarifying the issue.

• Creating a plan.

• Presenting a solution to executives.

• Discussing the issue with the rep(s) in question.
