I went to a course today here at HubSpot on how to deliver effective feedback. At HubSpot we offer trainings to our employees. I have started taking the management training courses because I want to make sure I have the skills to help my new BDR when she gets on the floor next month.  I want to make sure that I can use these trainings as a starting point for my relationship with her when she gets on the sales floor with me.

There are plenty of ways for companies to easily track what features, tools, etc need updating or creating by using support tickets but there is no good way for product and sales to work well together that I know of.
