Joining me on this episode of Accelerate! is Norman Behar, CEO and Managing Director of the Sales Readiness Group, and co-author of the new book, The High-Impact Sales Manager: A No-Nonsense Practical Guide to Improve Your Team’s Sales Performance. Among the many topics that Norman and I discuss are some of the new ways millennials prefer to access sales training, what to look for when selecting a training vendor, creating a culture of accountability, and the skills a sales manager needs besides those of a top sales rep.

[17:01] Andy puts it on the manager’s plate to verify that the training vendor has relevant offerings for their staff, so the sales reps don’t ‘tune-out.’
