National Automatic Merchandising Association OneShow, April 25 To 27 In Las Vegas, To Offer Sales And Leadership Seminars

Attendees to the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) OneShowSM interested in learning proven techniques for improving sales performance should be sure to attend a special new session, “Coaching for Improved Sales Performance.TM The session is designed to help sales leaders develop a comprehensive approach to improving sales performance and cultivating and retaining sales talent.

The session equips the sales leader with tools to capitalize on coaching and cultivating sales people at all performance levels. Sales leaders will be trained to diagnose underlying reasons for poor sales performance, implement a system for observing and coaching specific selling situations, help sales people close business consistently to avoid the “roller coaster” sales pattern, and learn how to quickly turn around poor performing sales people. The session also includes a Personalized Leadership Style Traits analysis and recommendations report. 

The new session will be offered on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 24 and 25 at the NAMA OneShow, the event that showcases everything new in the vending, coffee service and foodservice management industry. This year’s OneShow will be held April 25 to 27 at the Venetian/Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas.
