New Research: What Motivates Salespeople

True or false: Salespeople are motivated differently than non-salespeople?

The answer is “true,” according to new research I recently completed in partnership with Modern Survey.

For sales leaders to effectively motivate their teams, they need to know what drives salespeople to perform. On August 3, Modern Survey President and Co-Founder Don MacPherson and I will be presenting our latest research in a webinar.

Join us to learn from the results of the 2015 U.S. Sales Engagement Study. We’ll discuss:

  • What motivates salespeople.
  • Why creativity is such an important skill in sales.
  • Why salespeople are nearly twice as likely to be looking for a job at another organization than non-salespeople.
