Each year sales managers spend a substantive amount of time and effort helping their sales team use their time with the customer more effectively. What they often fail to do is make a commitment to help them have more time to spend with their customers.
One way to tackle this second challenge is for front-line sales managers to filter requests coming from regional or corporate offices and only funnel to their sales team the requests the salesperson needs to succeed.
