Step 2: Do you really want to change behavior?
Sales training is more than just fancy tricks. The true benefits come from changing your attitudes and behaviors. If you are looking for some moves or tricks but are unwilling to change the way you sell, stop here.
Step 3: Do you have enough patience?
Sales training takes time. People need a coach because changing behavior takes reinforcement. Error and trial is the modus operandi.
Step 4: Are you willing to view coaching as an investment that pays a return rather than an expense?
If sales coaching is viewed as a necessary expense, stop right here. You are not a good candidate for our sales coaching. Over time, sales coaching should pay for itself many times over. However, it is far too stressful for all the parties if coaching is viewed as a necessary evil. We prefer to devote our time and talents to those who see coaching as an investment.
