Agenda:“Tell Me, Show Me, Coach Me”

Day 2 (8:00am - 5:00pm) – Customers with Concerns
 

 

 
 
Sales representatives often have specific product training but lack the overall sales foundation required to help them successfully engage customers. PathShare® HR Services offers training based on consultative selling as a way to build core competencies.

 

 
 
Discover how you can set yourself apart from your competition with a consultative sales approach. The PSS workshop and ongoing training with PathShare provides an effective and flexible approach to learning, applying, evaluating and continuously improving the skills you need to develop strong customer relationships. This training will help sales reps sell solutions verses a one-time transactional sale. Through real world examples and active participation, learn the benefits of having needs based conversations with an unwavering focus on the value of the customer.
 

 

Attendees will:
 
  •  Acquire skills to develop solid, long-lasting business relationships while improving sales performance
  • Increase long-term effectiveness by becoming knowledgeable business consultants
  • Acquire critical skills efficiently through learner-focused activities
  •  Gain a reliable method for continually evaluating and improving skill development
 
 
PSS is more than a workshop. After completing the 2-day PSS workshop, PathShare will provide 10 customized weekly follow-up action items to translate the classroom learning to the day-to-day activities of your team. In addition, PathShare will provide materials for 3 quarterly workshops following the session. This allows focus on areas of the sales training program that will ensure better results. Ongoing engagement with PathShare will help reinforce learning for success.

Our organization has just wrapped up our most recent hiring project with the PathShare Team and we could not be more pleased with the job they have done for our company. We have already changed our behaviors and revamped our onboarding which is proving to be invaluable for our new hires, managers and fellow employees. This is a great program and I would encourage other dealers to engage with the PathShare HR team!

Infomax has seen tremendous growth in our sales representatives after going through the GreatAmerica PathShare program and PSS sales training. We have taken people from what we feel are transactional sellers to true consultative sales representatives, thus finding customer needs and helping our customers.

Steve Jacobs
President, Infomax Office Systems, Inc. (Des Moines, IA)

The PathShare hiring program has helped us look at people differently. We've had such great hires in the last six months and we couldn't have asked for better people. It was really due to the GreatAmerica training on what to look for in people and where they would fit in with our company.

John Jones
VP, Human Resources Cannon IV (Indianapolis, IN)

We recently worked with Sally at GreatAmerica to develop phone training specific to our company needs. Sally took the time upfront to get a clear understanding of our challenges and goals. She then spent several hours developing the training for our company. The training itself was a hit! Sally brings a great deal of energy to any training she gives and gets everyone involved. We would recommend Sally and GreatAmerica to any company looking to improve on the phones and set more appointments.
