It can be difficult to find time to build the content for effective sales meetings. We have eliminated that as a barrier to team meetings by providing 52 full weeks of sales meetings, all of which reinforce the content in the courses, ensuring accountability—and giving managers back their time.
Let us save you some time. Honestly, there's only one reason to read anything on this page, and it's this: You want to invest in the professional and personal development of your team and you are willing to invest the resources to achieve that goal.
If that’s not you, you can bounce off the page now. No hard feelings.
Training is often mistaken for a one-time event. Training becomes an item on a checklist that someone checks off as completed. The problem with this approach is that it is transactional, and it doesn’t lead to the transformational change that precedes better sales results. In the long run, very little will change, and because people are creatures of habit, they go back to what they are comfortable with, even when it doesn’t produce the result they need.
We look at transformation through the two concepts of training and development. When we train, we are providing new beliefs, new skills, and new tools, all of which are necessary. Development is the application of these new beliefs, skills, and tools to create new outcomes.
Development requires consistent expectations, coaching, and discussion. It requires a cultural change where all participants are required to work on their growth and development, led by their sales managers and leaders.
Sales Accelerator delivers the results in micro-learning modules that foster learning across your entire team, providing a common set of concepts and language that provide methodologies that all participants can follow.
This kind of development creates a sales team-wide foundation to which sales leaders and salespeople all play from the same playbook.
More importantly, teams are able to create more new opportunities, close deals faster, and create pipeline projections with improved accuracy.
Training by itself is important, but if you want sustainable results, both training and development are required.
In a few hours each week, you can train, coach, and develop your entire sales team. You can gain access to the content, methodologies, and processes to make transformational change. The investment is something any company can easily afford.
Below is our comprehensive curriculum outline with over
30 hours of courses — and new content added regularly!
There is nothing more important than the right mindset when it comes to selling and sustainable results. Salespeople perform better when they develop the necessary attributes that make it easy for people to want to buy from them. In these courses, the sales force will learn:
How to keep the commitments they make to themselves and to their prospective clients. They’ll also build the habits that will provide a foundation for lifelong success.
The Optimism course is designed to make your salespeople immune from rejection, optimistic about winning, and steeled to persist until they win.
Self-oriented salespeople repel prospects. Caring provides an actionable set of mindset shifts to ensure salespeople are other-oriented.
No one talks about being competitive anymore, even though our environment is now more competitive. The work the sales force does here will ignite their competitive spirit.
Much of what we do in sales requires creativity. We are either solving sales problems or helping clients with their seemingly intractable problems. Resourcefulness is the linchpin attribute.
The difference between salespeople and sales organizations often comes down to initiative. Being proactive always creates a competitive advantage, and it pulls results forward in time—for you and your clients.
Winning in B2B sales requires the ability to persist long enough to create or win an opportunity. The coursework here will prevent giving up and teach a willingness to persist.
Communication is more than good skills standing up in a board room. It’s about listening, connecting, and creating a preference to work with you and your company.
Your dream clients expect the salespeople to deliver the outcomes they sold them. This course helps the salesperson understand why accountability is important and how to be accountable for results.
Being a person of influence starts with the development of these attributes. The influence course pulls all the attributes together as a capstone for this section.
What separates the masters from the amateurs is their proficiency and command of the fundamentals. The ability to apply the fundamentals is what allows you to create and win deals. The time spent mastering the fundamentals is the foundation of your success in sales, and it will prevent you from losing deals you might have won.
In The Model Sales Week, you’ll create a weekly plan to win major accounts by blocking time for your most important tasks each week – including your own personal development.
Most salespeople don’t have a plan to reach their quota. After this course, you will know your numbers and have a plan to reach your goals.
It very much matters what salespeople believe about sales. This course provides a set of dictates necessary for a consultative approach to sales.
The sales process provides structure to deal pursuit by ensuring certain outcomes are obtained. The general process provided here supports an understanding of the value of the sales process and can be used to support adherence to yours.
Describes each stage of the buyer’s process and how to best create value for the client great enough to move them forward towards buying from the salesperson.
One of the largest challenges for every sales organization is creating new opportunities. The work you do above the funnel is too important to leave to chance—or marketing alone. These courses will help you develop a list of dream clients and capture mindshare by nurturing relationships over time. After that, it's only a matter of time and persistence before you create new opportunities with major accounts.
A strategic target is a prospect for whom you can create massive value. In B2B sales, you need to do more than just call on leads if you want to win big deals. This course maps out how to identify and nurture your most important prospects.
The pursuit of major accounts requires a professional pursuit plan built on nurturing the relationships and preparing the ground for a conversation about why they should change.
No deal is ever closed that wasn’t first opened. The critical first step in winning opportunities is creating them. The prospecting tracks are designed to help you build a prospecting approach that works—i.e., a hunter culture.
Because the commitment for time is one of the most difficult, this course on gaining commitments starts the prospecting block.
There is still nothing faster or more effective in obtaining new appointments than a phone call. Your sales force can’t afford not to be able to use cold outreach as an approach to prospecting.
Follow these rules to always be opportunity rich and never opportunity starved. Here you’ll learn about targeting, research, methods & cadence, and why you need to use a script.
Discovery once meant learning about all the ways your dream client was already dissatisfied. While that approach is still useful, modern discovery means helping compel your prospective client to change before they suffer the negative consequences of waiting too long to change.
The gift of the client’s time is too important to waste. When you know how to plan for a sales call, you are better prepared to create enough value to have earned the right to ask for the next meeting.
Deals are won and lost in the discovery and diagnosis stage of the sales conversation. It’s critical the sales force know how to do good, modern discovery.
How do you approach a client that doesn’t know they’re dissatisfied? When should you compel your prospect to take action? This course provides sample language that you can use to generate greater value for your dream clients wherever they are in their buying cycle.
The courses in the presentation tracks provide a foundation for differentiating the salesperson and your offering. It also provides a proven methodology for presenting and providing a proposal that helps convert prospects into clients.
Your prospective client needs to know how you are different, why you do things differently, and how it benefits them. The course work enables this outcome and creates a competitive advantage.
A good presentation is a dialogue and not a monologue. In this course, you’ll learn why you need to be other-oriented and how to tailor each sales call to the conversation that your client needs to have now.
Learn how to become a trusted advisor by understanding your prospective client’s current state and providing valuable insights that will help them reach their ideal future state.
How does your client know you’re a value creator and not a time waster? This course will teach you how and when to provide concrete proof that you can deliver on your promises.
Most salespeople don’t negotiate. Instead, they provide their prospective clients with price concessions, without getting anything in trade. This practical, tactical course will provide a framework for protecting the margins you need to deliver the better results your clients need.
This is a critical skill to preventing the prospective client from underinvesting and levels the playing field for salespeople when they are asked to discount their solution.
Trust is the currency we trade. In this course, you’ll learn how to control the sales process with commitment gaining, and to close deals using natural language – without any tricks or tie downs. This course is based on the book The Lost Art of Closing.
