Consultative Selling Skills Workshops

All sales people need a series of fundamental consultative selling skills in order to be effective. Consultative selling, or needs-based selling, is a foundational skills set, but it's changed greatly in the last 20 years. In addition, sales people need skills of reading people, building relationships, negotiating, provocative selling, and presentations. One training class is no longer enough.

Winning Early, Winning High

consultative selling

This module focuses on helping salespeople build preference by changing the way they engage and drive business dialogue with buyers, especially executive decision makers, early in the sales process. Today's buyers are smarter and farther along in the process before they ever interact with salespeople. The old model of asking 20 questions to understand their "pain" just doesn't work that effectively any more.

Delivering Strategic Presentations

Once salespeople understand the process of selling up the food chain of value, they need to strategically apply those skills to craft an effective presentation. An effective presentation is one that links your solution to the pains of the audience, regardless of their level in the organization.
