Just started at my current company 4 months ago as an Enterprise AE. My manager oversees all new business sales (7 enterprise reps, 2 MM).
During my time, my manager told me 3 times, unprompted, that he sees me moving into management. After the third time (realistically after I had been here for a full quarter), I asked him for a more in-depth meeting to discuss how I've been doing, where I can improve, and my personal and professional goals, which included that I'd like to move into management.
He told me earlier today some changes are coming to the sales organization later this year: 2 BDRs moving up to become MM AEs, and they're going to split the team into enterprise and MM, so they'll be hiring a new MM sales manager.
What steps do you recommend so I can position myself as the best candidate for the new MM manager role?
