Guest: Patrick Leddin, Ph.D.
Since the beginning of 2020, we’ve seen the shift that sales teams have experienced as more companies implement a work-from-home environment. Sales teams have had to adjust and learn to function on a virtual sales floor. Sales leaders have had to find better ways to communicate, coach and receive coaching, and continually discover better ways to build trust and camaraderie between employees. Join us as we discuss the things you can do as a sales leader to create a successful virtual team environment.
