Key Areas Of Content:
Asserting a PerspectiveIn this program, we teach your sales professionals how to develop and share a clear and compelling point of view message in a way that creates openness and receptivity on the part of the customer to see a new or different perspective. We focus on enabling sales professionals to have the confidence, courage, and know-how to assert their perspective in a way that reframes thinking to help the customer avoid unnecessary stalls, make the right decisions, and get to the business outcomes that they need quickly and efficiently.
Aligning StakeholdersWe provide sales professionals with a roadmap to uncover and address critical areas of stakeholder misalignment needed to reach agreement on the right course of action. We focus on teaching them to drive momentum. We teach sales professionals how to remove roadblocks and find common ground to help the customer navigate their own internal decision-making process in a careful and effective manner.
UptieringWe teach your sales professionals how to gain a current contact’s agreement to arrange a meeting with a senior-level decision maker. In this program, we increase the sales professional’s chance of getting a meeting with these senior-level decision makers by teaching them how to articulate a compelling reason for the introduction that shows value and minimizes risk to their contact.
Content Grounded in Behavioral ScienceOur 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.
