Corporate Visions Releases Q4 2010 Sales and Marketing Messaging Report on Coaching

Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — Each quarter, Corporate Visions, Inc., the leader in sales and marketing messaging, surveys marketing and sales professionals who work in complex, business-to-business selling environments. The findings highlight trends and challenges facing industry-leading companies across the globe that are working to achieve alignment between their marketing and sales efforts, and de-commoditize their solution in a market overwhelmed with similar, competitive offerings.

Key findings include: 89% of reps confirm that more coaching from their first-line managers would have a moderate to significant impact on their performance. Yet, only 27% of companies methodically support and train managers on coaching techniques. Not surprisingly then, coaching from sales managers tends to occur sporadically; only 11% of reps have managers that frequently shadow their calls and coach to their conversations.
