    Sales Training Workshop

    Reading People Better to Make More Sales 

    presented by:
    Kirk Armstrong, Sales Coach, Armstrong Sales Coaching

    “Just be yourself” - it's great life advice, but it's a terrible sales strategy. 

    People want to do business with others like them.  The more you can be like "them," the more effective communicator you become. This high-energy and highly interactive session will concentrate on using advanced communication tools in order to increase your success at closing more business.  We will cover body language skills training, advanced DISC personality profiling and other communication techniques used by the top 5% of salespeople today.

    As leaders, if you would like to keep good employees longer, eliminate some of the "people" issues in your business, or simply want to communicate more successfully with others, this is the session for you and your team.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn how to communicate better with all personalities
    • Understand how to use "mirror & match" techniques with others
    • Become a better communicator by learning the four different personality styles
    • Be a better "boss" by knowing what your people are looking for from you
    • How to read people better, to better predict their responses
    Agenda:
    8:00am-8:30am: Continental Breakfast/Networking
    8:30am-11:30am: Workshop

    Team Sponsors:
