Why? WHY?!

Someone please tell me why Sales Enablement decided to schedule LITERALLY 15 hours of "Culture Orientation" and "Sales Training" Zoom calls IN THE LAST WEEK OF THE MONTH. 

This question is clearly rhetorical. 
I'm just hoping some of you fellow travelers will say funny things in the comments and we can bond over our mutual hatred of sales trainings led by people who have never sold things. 

Pray for me

Because they gotta hit their quota of “time wasted”.  I think of them similar to parking cops.

Haha was thinking the exact same 😅 I always ask myself how they defend themselves taking so much time to management. 1h of calls wasted vs their impact.

You can say that again. If our Sales Enablement team doesn't add 4-8 hours of bullshit on our calendar a month, they miss out on crazy bonuses lol

As Meech highlighted, everyone has a quota. Some make money, others prevent your ability to do so

Seems like someone wants to make sure they keep their job reminding everyone else they exist and “bring value to the table”

Is it active participation? Or can you pull that meeting up on your phone and listen while you keep slamming quotes/proposals/calls/demos
