Sales Training Case Study: Coaching to Develop Rainmakers

The Challenge

Chubb serves the insurance needs of property and casualty customers from some 120 offices in 27 countries around the globe. Chubb succeeds by establishing strong relationships with these independent agents and brokers, who place their clients’ business with Chubb underwriters. For much of the last decade or so, Chubb has been operating in soft market conditions. The issues Chubb faced are not unlike those facing other competitive businesses, such as new entrants to the market and undercutting of prices. Historically, the role of underwriter was a more passive one, receiving submissions from agents and then doing risk analyses and pricing. With soft market conditions, Chubb needed its underwriters to become more assertive business partners with independent producers to actively pursue business opportunities. To meet this need, Chubb partnered with Richardson Sales Performance to roll out the ‘Rainmaker’ programme, a one-on-one coaching programme tailored to the specific development needs of high-performing individuals.

The Results

For each of the three years the programme was rolled out, the combined new and retained business estimate tops $1M as a result of the program.
93% of Chubb participants reported being able to apply what was learned with positive results.
Over 14% of participants attributed more than $150,000 in retained business to the Rainmaker programme

“In order to better position myself and Chubb, I was able to retain and write new business. This is a direct result of the Rainmaker Programme.”
