This post contains cartoons, short videos, and a commercial that illustrate the worst in sales management. They're funny... and yet they are also true, in the sense that these behaviors exist in the real world.
NOTE: The first video gets a bit vulgar around the edges. However, since the voices are robotic and thus devoid of actual human intent, I'm posting it anyway.
VIDEO #1: The Joy of a Salesman
This video isn't the most lavish production, but it does encapsulate a certain type of sales management style. The link was sent to me by sales guru Barry Rhein, who said he "sent it to a few sales execs and they all said they didn't know if they should laugh or cry as it hits to close to home."
