On this week’s SBI Insider Video Podcast we discuss the topic of adopting agile learning inside of your sales force. B2B sales reps need to learn new skills faster to improve their sales results. Is adding agile learning enough?
My colleague Drew Kiran and I recently reviewed a sales podcast by Jill Konrath titled “Million Dollar Insights, Joining the Agile Sales Revolution”. Jill is an author, speaker and thought leader who focuses on B2B selling.
Watch as we discuss Jill’s advice and analyze which insights should be implemented in your selling strategies. One of the questions addressed are the keys to accelerating growth quickly. Jill recommends finding top performers that don’t quit, and always keep going. They should have a mindset of experimentation. Having this kind of talent is crucial to accelerating sales with agile learning.

We review the following aspects of sales strategy and agile learning in the show today:
- The keys to accelerating revenue growth quickly.
- Why success depends on both your talent and your performance conditions.
- Why a deep knowledge of customers, markets, and accounts will help sales reps improve results.
- Why sales enablement, though critical, is not a complete sales strategy. It should instead be thought of as a sales tactic.
- How sales leaders should change their strategy to become more agile.
While we agree that adopting agile learning is important, sales success ultimately comes down strategy. Being an agile organization is part of a sales strategy. But it’s only one aspect. To be successful, sales leaders must listen to the external market place and align strategically with the rest of the organization. Watch as we describe how to set your team up for success.
