No one is born a manager. We must first be well trained at “being managed” before we can ever fully understand managing others. Your best managers are able to think like a sales person. What are the qualities of your best associates? They are self-motivated and creative. They think long-term, are strong producers, establish strong relationships, and challenge us! Your best sales people have the ability to think like managers.
