Answer just 22 questions (it will take less than 5 minutes) and receive an instant score on the relative effectiveness of your sales force. You'll also see how your sales force compares with others, receive an explanation of what your score means, and we'll recommend what you can do to improve your score.
The Cost of Your Sales Ghosts
It costs a lot money to hire and train salespeople, only to have them leave. We continue to be affected by the salespeople of years past; those who once walked our halls, have left, and whose actions continue to haunt us and cost us dearly. How much have your ghosts cost your company? Take the Ghosts Test!

The real issue is identifying the reason for the lack of an effective sales process. It could be any of the following:
We will help you understand whether your existing process is effective or not, and why not, as well as tell you what must be done to correct the problem.
Recruiting Process Grader
Your ability to select salespeople is only as good as your ability to fill the funnel with a high volume of high quality candidates.
Most executives don't have the time or expertise to effectively overcome that challenge. How good is your recruiting process? Most Business Owners and Managers would like to turn their sales
recruiting process upside down, and impact both the quantity and quality of candidates that enter the sales candidate pool. Do you have a proven and consistent process to identify those worth
perusing, and guide you to select those that will succeed in their roles at your company? Click the button below to find out.
Our Assessments can be used to enhance recruiting or to identify areas for improvement in an existing Sales Team. These assessments were built for sales, not adapted. As a result the findings are sales specific, accurate and predictive. Download our Free Sample Assessments and see for yourself how powerful the insight and analysis provided by OMG could be for you.
