Some companies don’t have realistic expectations as to how long it should take for new salespeople to ramp up and develop consistency. Some companies are far too patient with their new salespeople while others aren’t patient enough.

There are several potential reasons for this:

  • Selection
  • Lack of formal orientation and on boarding
  • Ineffective training and coaching
  • Lack of a baseline on performance
  • Lack of a formal sales process
  • Lack of reliable start up formulas
