Training for Selling to Executives & the C-Suite

We can help your team sell more effectively to CEOs and senior decision makers.

Individuals in C-Level positions have their own unique style of processing information and making buying decisions.  Compared to the V-Suite, this upper echelon of executives has broader visions, sharper focus, are less accessible, and have less time to spend in sales conversations.

Your sales approach and communication style must mirror these attributes to win business through selling to executives and to be seen as a long-term trusted advisor.

Richardson’s Selling to Executives & C-Suite Training module helps sales professionals build relationships with and sell more effectively to senior decision makers.  We train participants to think more analytically about the characteristics of senior executives, then work to align their own communication and sales styles accordingly.  As a key tool, participants learn a six-phase process for orchestrating the executive meeting or presentation and practice applying the process in scenarios geared towards the opportunity of selling to the C-Suite.

Your team will also practice strategic sales skills, such as:

  • Gaining access
  • Securing key meetings
  • Leveraging Centers of Influence
  • Uptiering, cross-selling, and positioning value

All of these skills support the goal of being perceived over time by high-level executives as trusted advisors and preferred providers.
