Grover says: "We say that distributors cannot have a serious conversation about strategic pricing without including how their sales reps are compensated and managed in the same discussion.
"In many companies, incentive sales compensation has little effect on behavior, or even encourages the wrong behavior - more sales at lower margins.

High-performance sales pros, like great athletes, need training and coaching to reach and maintain stretch goals."
