Sales by 5 recommends the following training segments provided over a two-day period:

Day 1
Session 1: 10:00 – 11:30 AM

  • White board hurdles and get to know each other (15 minutes)
  • Sales and Relationships: The Same Rules Apply – The focus of both sales and building relationships is the transfer of trust. Employees learn the language that sells and produces trust faster and more effectively and behaviors that un-sell in sales, dating and at home.
  • Feel – This segment focuses on how we make people feel during transactions. Examples of poor, average and excellent customer service are demonstrated live and via video.
  • Presentation skills – We teach the 5-7 min communication dance, the 10-second pitch and Just Listen.
