It's becoming more and more expensive to hire new talent, and you can't expect that to change any time soon. So instead of looking outside your company for high performers, you'll need to start building them from within.

Sales coaching is an integral part of this process, but often managers don't know where to start. Learning to mentor someone isn't something you learn overnight, and being good at what you do doesn't necessarily mean that coaching someone will come easy to you. To learn how to provide guidance, you might need a little assistance yourself.

ASTD has recently announced a new certificate program to help you learn how to successfully coach for sales. The Sales Coaching for Business Impact Certificate Program is a two-day workshop that leverages the research from ASTD's World-Class Sales Competency Model. Based on the research and the Coaching for Sales Results Area of Expertise, you'll participate in highly interactive exercises and sales team analysis while learning the foundation of effective Sales Coaching, proven coaching strategy and tactics, and will take home tools they can use immediately in their organizations.
