Who does The Manager Solution Work For?

The Manager Solution is designed for managers to become more effective coaches to their sales teams. We work directly with sales managers to improve communication within teams, set measurable goals for presenters, and, most importantly, ensure their teams have the right tools to become better presenters and demoers. Looking to outsource the management of your demo team completely? Demo Solutions offers outsourced functional management as part of this package as well – we manage performance so you only have to worry about HR. Some contributors learn best when they are led by example, so we manage for you with a dedicated resource who is an expert presenter and manager.

How Does The Manager Solution Work?

Onboarding The Manager Solution begins with a Demo Audit that can take from 3-4 weeks and includes a bias-free analysis of your live demo sessions, as well as your resources (assets, collateral and team members). After we objectively assesses your execution, processing, talent, and messaging, based on findings we deliver a strategy and tactical plan for individual team members and managers spanning a 6 month (or longer) cycle. We present these findings within 1 week of completion of the audit and coordinate the strategy and application of the plan with your leadership.

Following the audit presentation, we coordinate a half day kick-off session of our Demo Rules to engage contributors and managers and present the foundations of effective demoing and demo management. At the completion of each phase of coaching, we celebrate each milestone and transition into the next phase with a team workshop/coaching session. Monthly deliverables include workshops, 1:1 coaching sessions, group exercises, suggested advanced education or certifications and performance reports as requested. Our proposals are 6-month commitments from discovery, to foundations, to acceleration, and are 100% customized. Sample tactics, deliverables, and workshop titles are below.
