Worst thing a sales leader ever said to you?

We have all probably had a terrible CRO, VP or manager or at least heard of one.


I have heard of bosses berating, making unwanted advances, threatening and shaming reps.


I had a CRO that was always on some sort of stimulant tell a room of green reps that they needed to start finding a drug of choice if they planned on staying in sales.


I've witnessed sexual harassment of female coworkers, racist remarks, and highly toxic behaviors of screaming for missing numbers, losing deals etc


I don't think I have met a rep without a story like this. What's yours?



Ever had a nightmare for a leader?

I've had a great experience with my sales managers so far, nothing to report there.

However, I did spend years working in restaurants. If you think sales managers are unhinged, abusive, and ridiculous allow me to introduce you to restaurant general managers and owners...
