Sales Course Overview
Modern sales is no longer about traditional selling. Today it is much more about helping people to buy, by making them feel comfortable with you, your organisation and your products or services. This requires good people skills and strong analytical skills. You need to be able to understand and to empathise with their fears and objections. You would also need to be able to identify and understand their motivating factors, their hot buttons.
A thorough understanding of customer concerns and motivation will help you to ease their fears and fan their ambitions to make the benefits of buying more tangible to them. Good selling is about inspiring and motivating other people to overcome their own objections and concerns, whilst enabling them to focus on the benefits that your products will bring to their organisation. Mastering this will enable you to perform at your sales peak.
Great sales performance creates a sense of purpose and optimism amongst your customers and clients. Team work between you and your customers is to be promoted and respected. Together you will promote the success of you, your company and the customer organisation, along with that of your customer contacts. This harnesses the energy of everybody to focus on the future collective success of the team.
Good sales people are invaluable to all companies. They increase sales, sustainable profits and customer satisfaction and retention. Everybody wins and the workplace becomes a much happier and more successful business environment.
To ensure that the delegates attending this training course will get the maximum possible benefit from their time and that the discussions will be at their most effective; the delegate numbers would normally be limited to a maximum of 12. However, for internal single company courses, if requested to do so, we would be prepared to accommodate up to 15-18 attendees.

Even with groups as small as 6 delegates, the course fees per person for internal training workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.
Running training workshops internally is very convenient many of our clients and allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organisation. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon development action plans and assign priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.
