  • Four ways that incompetent salespeople can damage your company, beyond just missing the numbers.
  • Two business dynamics that can make it easy for incompetent salespeople to "hide" for a very long time.
  • The results of a benchmarking study that exposes just how many salespeople are lacking core selling skills.
