Sales Bond Training & Performance Management
Most sellers play the hand they are dealt. If they get a good hand, they win more. Such as, a market leading product, a well known company, a solid team, resources, a friendly territory, etc. When their hand weakens, as in a new job or unknown territory or unproven product in a new category, they’re exposed. Their previous techniques misfire leading to a downward spiral
On the other hand, Rainmakers play the person sitting across from them, the Buyer. 80% focus on the Buyer and 20% on the hand they’re dealt. They see through a different lens and therefore see different things, which allows them to plot a winning path most of the time. Like ‘water + gravity’, they find the quickest path to money.
For those of you in Enterprise Sales, this is just another way to look at the familiar. And you’ll find that if you can find different ways and different windows into the same topic, it often gives you a better clarity…like a superpower.
One person's Magic is another person's Engineering
Selling is a life skill. Whether you are seeking a job, a budget approval, a promotion or rallying your team, etc, you are really applying your selling skills.
When 2 people achieve the same skill level and experience in any field (accounting, carpentry, etc), who do you think gets promoted? Probably the one with better selling skills.
Magical Selling is available as 2 options:
a) Self Service, fully modular content, and
b) Fully bespoke
Magical Selling ethic, 'My win is a byproduct of your win'
