Uplevel. Uplift. Upskill.

It’s Time to Change the Way We Sell

There’s a hole in your sales education, a set of important concepts you’ve never been taught. Gap Selling changes everything you know about sales and what it takes to become a top seller in the 21st century sales game. 

Program Outcomes

  • Closing happens at the beginning of the sale. We call it opening. The sale is contingent on how well you open. Learn to be an opener. HINT: Discovery!
  • Kickass sales demos are game changers. Learn how to ditch the feature dump and start truly demonstrating.
  • Stop losing deals that should close. No more discounting, losing to status quo, buyers going dark.
  • Understand the psychology of change. When we buy, we make a change. But people don’t like change.

Program Themes

Busting Sales Myths, How to Qualify, How to Ask Powerful Discovery Questions, Kickass Sales Demos, and Objections Handling.

Empower Your Entire Team

It’s all about results! Rock star salespeople are great. We LOVE them. We also love it when people take initiave and level-up their personal skills. But sales is simply not a strong link sport. It’s a weak link game which means your best strategy to improve is to get your lowest players up.

 

  • Sales organizations with a common methodology out perform those who don’t by 12-25% typically.
  • Consistency is the name of the game. Consistent qualification criteria, consistent messaging, consistent conversations for deal reviews, consistent!
  • With consistency comes powerful coaching. Manangers, this is for you. Have the common language to give specific feedback to your salespeople.
  • MOST important, have some fun! We know “sales training” has been fairly daft for the last 40 years, but that’s just not how we roll. Be challenged, entertained, collaborate, and buckle-up, because this training is a ride!
