Sales Manager Academy is Fuel x McKinsey’s online sales manager training, focusing on two areas with the most impact on a startup’s sales team performance.

There is a major misalignment in the startup sales world. Fuel’s Sales DNA research on 42 growth companies uncovered the following insights:

  • Sales reps are not only open to good coaching and pipeline management but think it is critical to their development and success
  • They also don’t get coaching and training on the skills that matter for driving successful sales
  • Systematic coaching, using ride-alongs, tailored sessions and the like, is not routinely deployed in startups, leaving a significant missed opportunity

Think about this. In the highly-competitive startup world, where sales is often the lifeblood – sales managers are often not trained in the two most important skills that determine whether a startup grows fast or dies slow. Getting the right training accelerates good sales managers into great sales leaders. Beyond increased sales, becoming an effective leader increases job satisfaction, helps attract/retain high-performing sales reps, and can have a strong impact on a manager’s career trajectory.

  • Time: “There is no time to spend on training and run a sales team.”
  • Options: “There are too many options; which is the right one for me?”
  • Applicability: “Will this be applicable to my team/needs?”

Fuel has designed a solution specifically to bridge this divide. We created Sales Manager Academy, training for startup sales managers in coaching and pipeline management. For a limited time, startup sales managers can now take advantage of frameworks and methods used by the many of the top sales organizations in the world.
