SORT BY Relevancy
This will probably be one of the craziest shows I've done in a long time. I was presented with a question the other day, but in reality, it was a hypothesis, that minorities need a different type of sales training to be successful.
As some of you already know, I'm always listening to what people say. My first response to the question was "why would say this?" So I left the conversation shaking my head.
I want to hear what you have to say about this subject.
First, the sales industry is not for everyone to begin with. So why would someone say that minorities are a subset of an industry where the majority of people do not like sales?
Second, a sales concept is not black, white, Latin, or Asian. Why does sales training need to be conceptualized uniquely for minorities?
What would this alternate, conceptualize sales training include?
Let's talk about this subject.

Sales Rep Kryptonite? CLOSING!
It’s true there are salespeople out there who actually “Sell” products/services for a living…..that HATE to CLOSE customers. Literally I’ve been on ride-alongs with sales reps making calls on customers where I see them physically shake with nervousness when it came time to ask the customer to buy. I’ve never met a salesperson who doesn’t like to talk including myself so to witness this irony where you have someone present their product with such confidence actually wilt when it comes time to ask a customer for the sell is quite baffling.
During this show we'll have the #1 Best-Seller Author of ":60 seconds to YES" Don Spini help us to decipher the "WHY", and "HOW" to break this apprehension sales reps have with "Closing". During this time of year as many companies are close to closing their year-end sales forecasting book, sales reps are scrambling to make sure they execute on their year-end sales quota......"Closing" is CRITICAL.
I hope you join me for what I think will be a highly charged and inspirational show!
