Our Solutions

  • Relationship Strategies for Dramatically Increasing Personal Sales

    What if there was a way to immediately connect with sales prospects and know the best ways to build relationships and make presentations to them? Well, that’s what Everything DiSC Sales is all about! This is a practical method for salespeople to identify their own personality type as well as those of their sales prospects, and then build relationship strategies around that information. The sales training focuses on the following key learning outcomes:

    1.) What are the four main personality types and which ones does the salesperson align with?

    2.) Using video examples, the salesperson learns how to quickly identify which of the four types their prospect falls into.

    3.) Armed with the knowledge of their own type and their prospects type, the salesperson can create the specific relationship and presentation strategies that will help them to dramatically increase their selling success!
