Top Producers Take the Stairs- Service Minded Selling and the habit of Self-Discipline

[Breakout Session Workshop 45 minutes up to 2 full days]

The number one cause of failure in sales is “creative avoidance”. Salespeople are constantly torn between the support work required to fulfill their service to their customers and with going out and prospecting for new business. Most salespeople don’t like to do things like cold call even though cold calling is an important part of any lead generation machine. Success in sales definitely means doing things you don’t want to do and overall it’s just plain difficult to survive in sales without first establishing the habit of discipline. This program focuses on sharing a unique combination of motivation and sales techniques to help your producers reach the next level.

After hearing Rory’s practical and empowering speech your salespeople will:
– Overcome their call reluctance and take immediate prospecting action.
– Become more focused on their critical success factors.
– Feel comfortable and confident asking for the sale.
– Have tools for dealing with gatekeepers, qualifying correctly, and selling on value over price.
– Be disciplined about controlling their activity and their attitudes
– Take The Stairs more often in the mall, the airport, and in life situations.
