We’ll examine beliefs about salespeople and money, with a focus on the latter. In this highly interactive program, one very popular consultative sales methodology will be reviewed in depth, and every attendee will physically practice the steps in achieving a desired outcome.
The sales methodology will emphasize not only the value of questions in the sales process, but also what kind of questions get the best results, and why.
