Together they supply energy to almost 5 million households across the UK, as well as offering other home services including heating and boiler cover and phone and broadband.


The sales team included a groups of sales managers each with around 12 sales people to manage.


The specfic need was to help the sales amangers with ideas on how to better manage their teams. They wanted ideas on how to refresh their approach in order to achieve higher sales volumes with the teams.


We developed a one day workshop covering a variety of different aspect of sales management:

  • Managing work styles.
  • Managing direction of sales.
  • Pipeline management.
  • Creating a sales culture.
  • Management by targets.
  • Motivation.
  • Challenging situations.
  • Leadership presentations.
  • Personal Actions.


Each one of the sales managers gained insight into their management style, with our Work Styles Model. There was lots of discussion of the challenges they faced and how to overcome these. We also developed action plans for each manager.
