Sales and marketing directors, managers and sales people.
Useful for anyone who has become customer-facing due to a
role, or who would find negotiation skills useful.
Sales directors and managers are generally great sales people,
who would make more money by doing less selling and instead
creating a climate where they get the most out of the differing
requirements of their team. Sales

cannot seem to shift.
Negotiation takes place all the time. It is the art of persuasion
and follow-through to deliver outcomes and it is also

deal. He ran out of the session for a few minutes to send the
which resulted in a completed sale and thus paid for the coaching
many times over.
In other cases, sales people find the continuing rejection either eats into their confidence or makes
them angry. Here, using the same visualisation
techniques used by top sports people, sales people can learn
to optimise their personal “state” and create the
relationships which are essential for business success.
Sales coaching creates fast results. Focusing on presentation
and organisational skills results in increased performance and
sales managers how to coach leads to well motivated sales
people who get the support or space they require as
individuals to excel in their job.
When sales people
use coaching skills themselves, it
enables them to deal more effectively
with customers and bring in new business.
