Until last year, in-person, face-to-face training was by far the primary learning modality used to improve leadership and sales performance. The reason for that is not hard to understand—it has simply been the tried and tested way to deliver learning that leads to behavior change and performance improvement. When the ability to deliver face-to-face training was instantly cut off, the need for performance improvement to execute business strategy continued and, in some ways, became even more acute.

This results in misunderstandings, miscommunication, and missed opportunities for a relationship to take root.

Today, more than ever, there is a need to ensure that virtual training works to improve organizational outcomes. Because of the surge in work-at-home arrangements and travel restrictions caused by the global pandemic, most learning shifted to virtual learning without the benefit of careful planning or preparation. This shift requires program owners to design virtual training with desired outcomes in mind and demonstrate that the virtual format works.

Webinars do generate leads. People lost faith in webinars as a lead generation source in 2020. They didn’t get leads. Prospects didn’t attend. The problem isn’t the webinar. It’s what you’re doing before, during, and after that’s failing to drive attendance and convert leads.

While organizations around the world are spending billions of dollars on training, most of that investment is being wasted. Here’s what you can do to make sure your sales training initiatives add up to long-term results. Have you ever observed a sales representative during a call and thought, "How can this be the same person who did so well during training? Why aren’t they doing what they were taught?"

The fact is, this situation is more often the rule than the exception. Data collected by the consulting firm ES Research has shown that 85 to 90 percent of sales training fails to translate into a lasting improvement in productivity. So what’s keeping the training from moving sales professionals from knowing to doing? Here are 4 of the most common reasons most sales training fails.
