Financial services organizations need to transform their business models, performance objectives, and incentives to add long term value for customers. Richardson Sales Performance's sales training for financial services and banking sales professionals builds skills that build trust with customers and increase market share.
Research shows that more than two-thirds of financial services leaders think they are at risk of losing business to FinTech companies. To overcome this challenge retail banks must access the full potential of their service professionals. This group is uniquely positioned to render a dimensional picture of the customer’s needs to outpace "context-blind" fintech data. Richardson Sales Performance's retail banking training programs help participants deliver unexpected value for customers by building a new mindset in which exceptional customer service involves positioning additional solutions.
The insurance industry is in flux.

Richardson Sales Performance helps insurance sales teams develop a customer-focused strategy that differentiates providers from the competition.
Nowhere is change more visible and more rapid than in the technology industry. The diversity of players encompasses established firms and newly emerging startups, niche players and comprehensive solution providers, as well as both software developers and hardware manufacturers. Richardson Sales Performance helps technology firms take proactive steps to adapt to industry shifts, building sales teams that thrive over the long term and increase revenue.
The Media and Advertising industry represents some of the biggest challenges in selling today. The scale and complexity of most sales require a dialogue covering nuanced ROI measurements, varied channels, and changing target demographics. Richardson Sales Performance's sales training programs teach sellers to overcome these challenges by employing a consultative approach. Consultative Selling works within this industry because it offers sellers a way to navigate complexities unseen in other businesses. Every sale is different, but the way to get there is the same. A dialogue-driven process offers the customization that the customer needs.
Sales channels today operate at breakneck speed. Rushed shoppers want instant gratification and value. To meet these demands, retailers have entered an analytics arms race in which competitors seek to distill insights from constantly flowing data. This environment has left many consumer packaged goods (CPG) businesses wondering how their roles will develop in response to these trends. Our CPG sales training programs identify the unique challenges facing CPG sales clients’ businesses and customize solutions for overcoming them.
Investing in a retail sales training program will build a competitive advantage for your retail operation over online vendors. Retail companies investing more in sales training programs achieve greater profits than competitors. Unfortunately, many are cutting costs in retail selling skills training. Some retail stores have gone even further. They have chosen to fire experienced sales professionals who command higher pay. Retail sales training programs show professionals how to deliver a better customer service experience. Often, customers are in a store because they seek solutions from a professional. Therefore, the professional must be prepared to serve customers by first understanding their needs.
Manufacturing and industrial companies have done a good job improving efficiencies and cutting costs to better the bottom line. But, it’s top line growth that raises the bar. The simple solution is to sell more to more customers. Yet, few manufacturing companies have invested in the kind of consultative sales training that changes the conversation and reframes opportunities. This is where Richardson Sales Performance can help by training manufacturing industry sales professionals in effective ways to connect, collaborate, and
Investing in your sales team has never been more important to the professional services sales process.

Let Richardson Sales Performance help you improve your sales team results. Our comprehensive and customized sales training and business development solutions for professional services organizations help build sales skills, change behaviors, and drive business outcomes.
Improve Your Team’s Performance With Corporate Sales Training
Effective selling strategies have become a competitive advantage in today’s business landscape. Sales professionals need more than just a range of skills. They need to know how and when to use each of those skills. They need to be able to shift from one capability to another, sometimes in the span of a single conversation.
Agility is critical as the buying process becomes complex. The customer’s needs and perceptions change throughout the buying process, and the sales professional must adjust accordingly in real time.
As more stakeholders enter the picture, sales professionals require a more robust and sophisticated set of skills. They need ways to understand underlying needs, coalesce decision makers, and position value that resonates.
Developing these skills is increasingly difficult as business challenges and the corresponding solutions become more complex. Selling organizations are learning that better outcomes start with better selling behaviors.
These behaviors emerge during client-facing interactions — the “moment of truth.” In these moments, sales professionals must avoid seller-centric behaviors and instead commit to a mindset of authenticity. This mindset drives bottom-line results by creating opportunities for cross-selling, relationship growth, and expanding the scope of the sale.
We use blended learning that combines the effectiveness of classroom learning with the convenience of digital products. The result is a comprehensive skill set that equips sales professionals to surface the customer’s core needs faster.
Discover the Real Definition of Customization
Your corporate sales professionals need customized training to ensure they build skills that will drive long-term results for your organization.
For us, customization occurs for every level and every role of your sales team. We offer sales coaching and leadership programs for senior sales managers. We also offer specific sales training content for inside and outside sales reps.
Often, a combination of sales skills is required to truly transform your sales organization into a global leader in your industry. Partnering with Richardson Sales Performance provides the unique advantage of building a fully connected sales curriculum rather than isolated training events.
