Richardson Sales Performance’s Sprint ProspectingTM Training Program
Pipeline is the lifeblood of any sales organization. In today’s environment, it is critical to have an approach that helps your sellers effectively reach the right audience in a manner that captures their attention and makes them want to engage in a conversation. Our new Sprint ProspectingTM program equips your sellers with an agile sprint methodology to create powerful messaging, engage prospects, and advance conversations.
Selling Sprints are how your sales professionals move through the phases of an opportunity pursuit and engage with the customer. A sprint is a burst of activity that revolves around key moments of conversation with the customer, and consists of 3 components: Prepare-Engage-Advance. Each sprint should result in a mini close.
In our Sprint ProspectingTM program, we teach your sales professionals how to apply selling sprints to embrace the dynamic nature of engaging and selling, and integrate specific techniques, skills, and tools to progress each interaction.
By applying selling sprints in their prospecting efforts, sales professionals will learn that each customer interaction — from an informal, social engagement to a more formal, initial meeting– arms them with knowledge needed to assess the next best move against their original objectives. This helps sales professionals to stay agile and adapt as they ultimately attempt to move prospecting efforts to more, involved selling efforts.
Applying Selling Sprints in prospecting also teaches your sales professionals how to think more objectively and strategically as they plan and execute a single sprint at a time, and adapt future sprints based on the outcome of sprints completed.

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.
