Professional Selling Skills

This is another popular program that hits at the epidemic of poorly trained salespeople dragging down the prospects of businesses everywhere. Recent studies concluded something every consumer already knows: many sales people have no idea what they are doing.

Be part of the solution, not the problem. Professional Selling Skills is a hands-on, learning-by-doing program. At the end, participants will possess immediately implementable skills instead of just a handful of notes and no idea how to utilize the techniques they studied. 

Your sales people will develop increased confidence, and your sales will increase because your customers will benefit from:

  • Lasting relationships with salespeople who understand their business reality
  • Products that address their specific organizational and personal needs
  • Buying decisions that are based on fact, not high-pressure sales tactics

Growth Venture

“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower. That the greatest fighting forces, the greatest business organizations and the most successful individuals all prioritize extensive planning should tell you something.

Even though nothing ever goes exactly according to plan, no organization can be successful without one. Utilize the power of this seeming paradox through the Kaufman Foundation’s premier strategic planning training. 

Without a strategic plan, your company will be susceptible to steering off course and untold distractions from what renowned business author Jim Collins calls the “20 Mile March.” The 20 Mile March is one of the factors he found separates companies that thrive in volatile economic climates from those that stagnate or fail. The 20 Mile March is the steady implementation of and adherence to a strategic plan despite economic swings and attractive but wayward distractions.

Looking to the future, do you see stability and steady growth or continued uncertainty and volatility? Put your business in the best position possible to thrive during uncertain and volatile times. Sign up for Growth Venture today.
