Beyond your wildest predictions, the sales numbers are in the stratosphere! You achieved a record-breaking quarter. How did you stimulate this performance within your sales team? Knowing the secret to increasing sales productivity gets you noticed and rewarded. Yes!
It seemed so simple at first. You’ve studied personality typing before. Nothing new here. Yet, the results speak for themselves. What made the difference?
Many companies roll out training programs to teach their employees the concept of personality differences. There are acronyms, colors, shapes, animals, dimensions – you name it. Most participants enjoy the discovery of their own type. They are amused to contemplate how much or little they resemble the prototype. The problem: they stay stuck at this level of information, which seldom leads to change.
The key to success this time was applying the platinum rule – do unto others as they want done unto themselves. Unlike other training programs, the one you selected demonstrated how to identify the other person’s type and what to do to match it. Seeing the world from the prospect’s perspective and shifting into the prospect’s world enabled some of the struggling members of your sales team to change their approach. Along with the training was the follow-up. After all, information without application is useless.
It worked! Clearly the results speak for themselves.
Congratulations Super Star. What do you plan for an encore?
