Product Description

Intelligent Selling is about a new way for sales professionals to think and act as they engage prospects, clients, and customers in the value creation process. Selling today is about collaboration, not just consultation, and that takes a different attitude and skill set. There have been rapid changes in the buying process and selling strategy has, in many industries, not kept pace with the clients’ expectations. Sales people need to think like leadersclearly communicate how they create value, initiate more engaging conversations with prospects and customers, and learn how to manage conflict. Intelligent Selling offers a new approach to the selling process. Sales leaders learn how to qualify more than once, establish the Six Conditions for Success, and uncover and resolve conflict in the form of hidden barriers that can stop a sale. As one Intelligent Selling training participant said, “You manage the traditional sale—you create the intelligent sale.” When you integrate leadership and interest-based negotiation skills into the consultative sales process you get a new and different buying experience that will drive customer loyalty and sales results.
