Intentional Pursuit Strategy Training Programme

Employ an Intentional Strategy for More Successful Opportunity Pursuits

As the buying journey becomes more complex, dynamic, and iterative, sales professionals often find themselves reacting to customer changes and competitor moves.

To compete today, sales professionals must shift from a mindset of selling to a customer, to helping the customer buy. This involves strategic thinking and doing.

Richardson’s Intentional Pursuit Strategy Programme

Richardson’s Intentional Pursuit Strategy training programme (learn more here) teaches your sales team to think and act strategically when pursuing complex sales opportunities to increase their chance of winning and shorten the sales cycle.

Participants learn a buyer-centric methodology that embraces the dynamic nature of buying today. This methodology provides a set of strategic thinking prompts, practices, and interactive planning tools to help sales professionals make decisions, avoid traps, and take the right actions at the right time to move the sale forward.

Using insights from behavioural science, the methodology helps sales professionals create momentum and guide the customer through the logical and emotional buying decision.

The Intentional Pursuit Strategy programme trains your team to:

    • Understand how the buying process has changed and the imperative this change has created for them to think and act differently
    • Recognise and influence the factors buyers consider in every buying decision:
        • The Case for Change
        • Stakeholder Dynamics
        • Decision Process
    • Use our Momentum Methodology to assess their position, create the right strategy to differentiate, and execute with precision to drive the sale to close
