"I have been successful by teaching a simple and focused approach to sales fundamentals and Return based selling. A clear understanding of your sales cycle for the specific product or service is key. As is the application of a management method that creates success through the team as a whole. Consistent success requires leadership, a solid sales methodology and creative problem solving. All clearly focused on a company’s goals.
Perhaps most important is to never equate Excuses with Results, only Results = Results. To keep a positive attitude in every moment of your day, every day. Lastly, You must have a definitive technical and financial understanding of why the customer buys your product. The salesman that makes the best ROI case always prevails!”
