“Will You Be Able to Attract The Best Millennials to Your Sales Team?”
Where are you finding the best people to add to your team? How competitive will you and your company look so they also want to choose you? The Millennial generation (Age 20 to 39) is replacing your retiring “Baby Boomers.” Learn the different motivations, interests and opportunities you and your company have as you replace “Boomer’s” with “Millennials.” Learn how a different leadership philosophy and approach can maximize the performance of your next generation sales team.
(And not for publication…) This presentation focuses on three key points:
1) Understanding the different values of the different generations so attendees see the differences in the motivations of Millennials (under 40 years old) vs Boomers. If you understand how they got the way they are you can better understand how to best guide and motivate them.
2) The challenge for your attendees is they now have a sales coaching and management structure set up to maximize their independent “Baby Boomer” sales team (“My door is always open – call me if you need me”). But Millennials demand active coaching and guidance. They also want more frequent help and direction from their manager. Your attendees will learn how they can change their basic approach to sales coaching and management to better attract, and then motivate the new Millennials (under 40 years old) joining your team.
3) Understanding the four specific actionable steps they can take home to use with their sales team.
