Sales managers also know that, unlike in other fields, their team members deal with rejection every working day. A salesperson may also have to deal with issues not directly involved in closing the sale: Dealing with credit approval, billing, delivery, installation, and follow-through also provide potential for frustration and difficulty. The salesperson’s personality is unique, and requires a different sort of management. One of the things you may have learned about motivating salespeople is that if you try to motivate the individual salesperson, you will constantly be frustrated.
