Amazing that this is probably one of the most frequent reasons sales people give for not investing in training. Got customers to see and deals to close is the cry, yet isn’t it the case that World Class athletes, sportsmen and women all participate in training and coaching regularly. I would suggest that taking time for regular, planned training is a fundamental component of success- wouldn’t you agree?
Training- I haven’t got time!
Published by Graham Bunting
I have been around a while and seen some stuff for sure. I have experienced some good bad, indifferent and some downright fabulous. I am still hugely motivated to get up every day and be curious. I love tech and business and most of all dogs oh and people are ok too ;-) Having been in sales most of my working life I have a real interest in the art and science and am a committed lifelong learner - constantly frustrating my kids with my stock phrase "every day is a school day" Personally, I’m a husband to one, and father to five amazing children (three of them are no longer children, but independent adults) and my golden lab – Archie, who is always pleased to see me. I was blessed with becoming a Granddad in February 2021 (a very proud and somewhat besotted one) and another grandson arrived in October 2022 to keep their parents busy and for me to spoil. I am also a mad keen lover of the oval ball game and a lifelong supporter of Leicester Tigers. As an Englishman, that's therefore England at a national level and the British and Irish Lions. If I can be of service in any way including any area of developing a channel sales and support business or ecosystem partnerships, and or sales coaching or development, you can find me at the link below, and contact me via the form also. One of my favourite "quotes" is Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a beer in one hand, shouting "Whoo, what a ride!!"

One thought on “Training- I haven’t got time!”
Training for anyone is important, no matter what their business function. Yet it is often the first casualty when the money is short, or a crisis arises. Seems to me to be the wrong approach to cut the training. I’ve yet to attend a training course where I haven’t learned something that I could use to earn more money. The course quickly pays for itself.
