Good reps don’t make
Unless you train them how.
STOP PROMOTING TOP PERFORMING REPS
SMB Sales Reps and SMB Sales Leadership require entirely different sets of skills – that’s why promoting top agents fails so often. Arm the leaders of your small or medium sales teams with more than HR management theory. Give them real tactical job skills like coaching sales calls, running sales meetings, conducting rep 1:1’s and driving sales performance.

WHAT CLASS PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING
Stellar Training! Highly Recommend. John is a sales training stud. From start to finish he managed to engage my sales team. This was the first time I have witnessed a team of reps sad to see a training end. His interactive hands-on approach coupled with some humor and wit led to a fun and highly effective learning environment.
Best Sales Manager Training--EVER! John provided the best training I have ever received. It was so beneficial to see how to develop my team and give the most productive and beneficial feedback. I would recommend this company and training to any organization wanting to grow their sales managers and representatives to the next level or two or five.
Each time we've partnered with Factor 8 over the years, they have modified the training to be extremely applicable to our needs. They are great partners - also taking time to fully understand the business, and identify exactly what needs to be done to ensure the training is meaningful and can be immediately applied on the job. Great job!
Amazing! I've worked with the Factor 8 team for two very different sales teams over the last five years and they always deliver...what you need when you need it! I hope I have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
Incredible partners! We have been partnering with Factor Eight for several years on custom sales training for our inside sales teams and continue to benefit from their expertise and customer focused approach. They are truly some of our best partners!
Terrific Team! Factor 8 has been a tremendous partner for our team! They take the time to understand your business, tailor a complete strategy based on your unique circumstances, and then ensure that the plan is executed! From A-Z, they do it right. I would gladly work with them again!
