Sales / Commercial Management

Sales / Commercial Management


Whether in a period of crisis or not, commercial functions’ performances directly impact the company’s results.


Inside or field sales representative, Key Account Manager, junior or senior, pre-sales or closing… the commercial function encompasses a wide variety of positions.


However, regardless of training or experience, added value is often measured by business talent. What makes a good businessperson? What are the expected qualities? To boost motivation: a taste for challenge and perseverance; to meet, listen to and retain clients: empathy and curiosity; to counsel, explain and sell: pedagogy and self-confidence.


How can such subjective criteria be assessed? Is it better to advance an in-house technical profile to a commercial function, or to hire a successful businessperson from your competition? Once the position is filled, how do you stimulate the businessperson’s motivation? Through compensation, benefits, management?


Many questions arise, and the answers necessarily depend on the employee’s environment.
