Sample Motivational Memo to Disgruntled Sales Representative

sample memo

Even if the sales manager does not intend to readjust assignments, this shows the salesperson that the sales manager cares about sales representative feelings and understands their reluctance. Encourages the salesperson to accept the new assignment as a challenge and instills confidence by complimenting salespeople on their past performance. Opens the way for feedback by inviting the salesperson to come to the sales manager if the salesperson feels the same way in a few days.

To: All Sales Executive
From:__________, Sales Manager
Date:___________


After our staff meeting the other day, it was fairly obvious to us that some of our sales representatives were not too pleased with the new sales territory. I, as the Sales Manager, know how you feel and I can remember when I was in a similar position not too many years ago.

There's a strong temptation just to be angry and bitter about this development and after all, being assigned a new territory means a lot of hard work and development. But on the bright side, the rewards are certainly there.

Please keep in mind that we would never even think of assigning the territory if we didn't have every confidence in all of you as a sales representative. You all definitely our tops sellers and there's every indication that all of you will come out as a winner in this new assignment as all of you done in the past.

If everybody still has some problems, then come see me directly and we'll talk again.
