Richardson Launches Consultative Selling Diagnostic Assessment Tool

PHILADELPHIA, PA — February 16, 2006 — Richardson, a leading sales training and consulting firm, today announced the launch of a new Web-based Consultative Selling Diagnostic Assessment Tool as a part of their comprehensive sales, service, and sales management performance improvement solutions.

Richardson’s new Consultative Selling Diagnostic Assessment Tool provides salespeople with insights into their sales approach and effectiveness. It consists of 24 targeted sales performance-based questions drawn from Richardson’s 27 years of experience and research in working with world-class organizations. As salespeople respond to the 24 questions and make sales strategy and skill decisions, each participant receives specific and confidential feedback on his/her strengths and areas for growth. The data provides salespeople with an awareness they can use to maximize their strengths and develop plans to close skill gaps.

“We are delighted to now offer this simple to administer, and use, Consultative Selling Assessment Tool,” says Linda Richardson, CEO and Founder of Richardson. “There is often a dearth of feedback and without assessment, there cannot be correction. This tool increases salespeople’s self awareness and gives them a way to get an objective view of their sales strategies, skills, and level of client-focused dialogue. They can use the data to build on their strengths and makes changes to be more successful. Everyone needs an outside view and this tool gives just that to salespeople in a private, efficient, and highly useful way.”

The Consultative Selling Diagnostic Assessment Tool can be used stand-alone or integrated with Richardson’s Consultative Selling classroom and/or interactive Richardson QuickSkills™ eLearning training programs. Developed with SkillMeasure, a leading developer of assessment and diagnostic tools, the Consultative Selling Assessment Tool compliments the Developmental Sales Coaching Diagnostic Assessment Tool for Managers.
