Course description

Straightforward steps for developing and refining strategic communication skills, enabling sales professionals to maintain more productive customer relationships, shorten selling cycles, and increase profit margins. This course covers a wide range of simple - but not necessarily easy-to-implement - best practices identified and tested by sales professionals of all tenure levels over nearly three decades:

  • Communication Awareness - "People more often need to be reminded rather than informed..."
  • Planning - Prepare the best sales calls in less time; you'll notice the difference, and so will your customers
  • Probing - includes "5 Keys to a Good Question" and an exercise you can apply immediately in the field
  • Listening - includes "10 Skill Builders" to help you listen to build value
  • Proactive Style - effectively impact and influence others, learn to honestly "assume the sale" and to close more sales in less time
