Sales Training Programme Details
We use a “learning by doing” training methodology actively engaging participants in role-playing, problem-solving, brainstorming, and individual and team exercises. Throughout the training, participants receive intensive coaching and feedback. The combination of application, facilitator and peer feedback and self-assessment ensures participants experience the full benefits of a sales training programme.
A key part of our philosophy is participants are not blank slates. They are respected for what they bring to the training. We utilize a Socratic approach of questioning to earn commitment before we build models and teach learning points.
