Consultative Sales Training Dramatically Improves the Quality of Your Sales Calls
Today’s buyers are savvy, but they need sales professionals to help them diagnose their needs and identify solutions that drive desired business results.
Your sales team needs consultative sales training to empower them to create value in the buying experience and differentiate themselves from the competition.
Consultative Selling Training Program
Richardson’s Consultative Selling training program (learn more here) focuses on the critical structure of a sales conversation. It provides a powerful roadmap for a successful, buyer-focused dialogue.
The Consultative Selling Framework explored in the consultative sales training program gives sales professionals a consistent, repeatable process to more effectively execute their sales conversations.
The Six Critical Skills fuel and support the Framework, helping sales professionals leverage their technical excellence and use every consultative sales skill available to open more doors, better understand customer needs, more persuasively articulate value, and close more deals.
Richardson’s AccelerateTM Platform uses video-based scenarios to bring sales professionals from good to great. The video below is used in our Consultative Selling training program to demonstrate how to overcome sales objections with a consultative approach.
