Did you hear about the star gymnast who was chosen for the Olympic swimming team? Of course not, because it never happened. Gymnasts, even though they are excellent athletes, will be picked for the gymnastics team.  Swimmers will be picked for the swimming team. “Well, that’s just how it’s supposed to be,” I hear you say. Yet, isn’t this what often happens in the world of sales?

Are your Millennial salespeople having a hard time getting the next appointment? Are they struggling to reach decision makers? Do they hesitate to ask information from stakeholders, leveling up higher in the organization, or closing the deal? Simply put, why are they passively beating around the bush?

It’s not because they lack prospecting skills, closing skills, the right words to say, or tactics for getting past the inevitable objections. You'll be surprised to learn what's holding them back.

60% of Millennials are actively floating their resumes right now (Gallup). This is a problem for all business and sales leaders, since engaged employees guarantee:
  • better customer ratings;
  • increased productivity levels;
  • higher profits; and
  • lower absentee rates.
