“I am a strong believer in a consultative approach to selling. Our programs promote a customer-focused approach to planning and executing sales calls. Individuals and teams learn to engage customers via a needs-based dialogue that builds credibility, trust and solves problems, while also inspiring customers to identify and share critical information and beliefs. This information helps produce a compelling proposition and solution that differentiates sellers from their competitors. After all, people do not buy similarity. They buy difference!
