Love that. A sales manager willing to take the heat for his reps is a good sales manager

Team mentality. A sales manager should look out for his team. Iโ€™ve been on teams where the sales manager only looks out for himself and those situations always suck.ย

Genuine interest in a person and freedom

example: I have had a sales manager that would encourage me to go on interviews with competitors and other companies. if there is a better fit, do it.ย 

we're all in sales, and if we can see each other grow. that is what is important. not the product you sell, or the company you work for.ย
