The Developmental Sales Coaching Training Program

Richardson’s Developmental Sales Coaching training program transforms the role of a Sales Manager from being the expert who directs to a coach who inspires. In the Developmental Sales Coaching training program, sales managers gain insight into their personal biases, perceptions, communication approaches, and skill gaps that interfere with their abilities to increase accountability and strengthen performance.

Using the Developmental Sales Coaching Framework and Skills, managers learn to help team members self-discover ways to leverage strengths. They learn to coach their teams to continually grow and improve through problem solving. The result is a team of more self-aware, self-reliant, and skilled salespeople who more independently meet business goals and the creation of a culture that values feedback and inspires self-motivation. This program arms sales managers with the process, skills, and tools needed to reinforce learning, effect lasting behavior change, and improve results.

The Developmental Sales Coaching Training Program is available on our online learning platform.

Content Grounded in Behavioral Science

Our content is grounded in behavioral science. The focus on behavioral science across our program matters because we know that buyers make decisions based on both logic and emotion, an important and often overlooked component in both buying and selling. In fact, the emotional component of buying overrides the logical one. Sales professionals familiar with behavioral science concepts improve their ability to connect with customers because they have a greater understanding of their customer’s biases and their own. This helps them to more objectively evaluate opportunities and challenges, avoid aggressive behaviors, and reach their goals.
