Theres hardly a business that doesn't have Sales at its heart.... the trouble is how well-prepared is the heart and how strongly is it beating!

You may have the most fantastic Product, its success will depend upon how well its sold. That includes, Customer Experience while interacting with you on any of your Customer facing activities, your People, Processes and Customer Empathy. All of these work beyond the impact of the Product or the Solution. So, in the increasingly VUCA world, what are the Competencies that are critical for success as a Sales Professional?

Critical Sales Competencies

What makes a great Sales leader? What are the competencies, Skills and Attitudes that high-performing Sales Teams need to hone which will take them a long way towards success?

The Problem
Sales people come to lead Teams essentially through the following two reasons-
a. they have been a great Individual performer
b. they were leading a Team in another Organisation and were hired by yours

Precious little is done to help them understand, absorb and display the key Competencies required to be a successful Sales Manager.
Worse still, more often than not, more and more Product Training is done in the name of Sales Manager development programme.
Even fundamentals like the dynamic between the Team, the Task and the Individual is not brought out. Competencies like Working with and Through People, Active Listening, Challenging and Educating, Creating a Vision and Customer Oriented Behaviour are a far cry.
Our Sales Management development programmes are specifically designed to address this gap. They are execution-oriented and help Sales team leaders to understand, implement and Measure.    
Equally important is the issue of
Client Retention. Business grows only by retaining valued Clients. But Client Retention is a complex business involving People- both in your side as well as in theirs and Processes and Process orientation in both sides.
With our world-class "Clients in Perpetuity" programme, we help you understand the issues involved and appreciate the challenges. We also help you with a detailed set of Tools and a Framework which you could apply to retain hi-value Clients over long periods of time.

All our Interventions are designed for practical application. We don't just dwell in theory.
