Ignite Your Sales Team
...to build relationships that position them as Trusted Advisors - not Sales People.
No one wants to listen to another sales pitch.
Clients have changed the way they buy. Have you or your team changed the way you sell? If not, you risk losing business.
Stakeholder pressure demands results this quarter...
yet buyers are very concerned with price. You sense your team needs more support and new skills to sell in a socially-distant world. But you are not a trainer and don't have time to do this all by yourself.
Let's start getting the results you need by positioning your sales team as partners, not suppliers, and showing them how to move the conversation away from price and towards profitability.
Sales is about making an immediate connection
That's what your client needs in order to help them to want to have a conversation with your team. Time with clients needs to be earned. It involves a fundamental move away from transactional selling towards a more consultative approach.
Building relationships is a key ingredient for success in today's market place. I will show your team how to personalize the sales experience for each client and where to use automation.

Meet Angela Guillemet,
Executive Director, INCON
"Ciara ran an inspiring sales skills workshop. She provided really interesting new models to approach sales. The gathering of international sales professionals were really inspired by her innovative and personal approach."
What to Expect from working with me.
I have studied how the brain learns. I inspire and nurture rather than overloading your team with too much information.
I create experiences that involve being outside, connecting with team members and I show teams how to tap into the power of nature.
I will design a program and experience for your team no matter what their level of experience is or their location.
Steps to WIN and How to Make Sales Calls Online consist of a number of two-hour virtual training room experiences that are interactive - no more Zoom fatigue. PLUS:
+ individual access to a training website to reinforce learning
+ online assignments (and I can share reports with you on how each team member is doing)
+ accountability and implementation strategies
+ nurturing and follow-up by me to ensure each member is taking action.
I also invite each member to a private Facebook group to network with other like-minded individuals; to share, progress and learn from each other.
