Growing sales can be a challenging undertaking, especially in today’s global market with dangerously self-educated prospects. Whether you are charged with managing a sales team or closing business yourself, there are hundreds of potential pitfalls including self-limiting beliefs, the prospect’s unique challenges, the marketplace, and of course, your competition.
Are you tired of your salespeople:
James has been my Sandler trainer and coach for the past year. Opening a new business is a scary prospect. As a new business owner with no formal sales training, and being the one responsible to bring new clients through the door, this is both daunting and challenging. Through the Foundations training and weekly President's Club, James equips me with the tools to do this aspect of my job more effectively. He brings real world sales experience into every session and holds all of us accountable for improving our techniques. The weekly President's Club classes have been especially helpful in being able to drill in more deeply into each component of the Sandler system. The ability to roleplay with other business owners and sales people has been invaluable for integrating the Sandler techniques into my day-to-day sales opportunities. I would highly recommend James and Top-Tier to anyone who is looking to jump-start their sales career or take their existing performance to the next level.

In nature, millions of years of evolution determine individual destinies. In sales, nothing is etched in stone. Who and what we become can often be traced back to a single moment of a decision.

The Sales Mastery Program is not a one-shot, quick fix seminar designed to fill you with catchy phrases and short lived enthusiasm for a day or two. It's an ongoing development program grounded in proven theories, hard skills, powerful techniques and workable strategies that you can use on every call, with every prospect... for the rest of your life.
To help you make these skills your own, Sandler merges the latest research theories on Adult Learning Methodology, or "how adults learn," with approaches that founder David Sandler used instinctively. These two sources combine to form a unique and cohesive learning model for the Sales Mastery Class. You progress from awareness of selling concepts to deep understanding of them. Then you begin to apply the material to the real world, especially your particular business environment.
When undertaking any new venture where obtaining a new ability is the focus, one grows in stages as it relates to that ability. There is a progression involved that is consistent, no matter what the undertaking regards. Members of the Sales Mastery Class have accepted that these five stages of growth apply, without exception, in their endeavor to achieve the level of sales success the know is possible.
1. Awareness - In order to grow, one must first be aware that growth is both needed and possible.
2. Knowledge - Once aware, one must seek to acquire the knowledge that is most relevant and beneficial in providing the type of growth he/she desires.
3. Application - Obtaining the right knowledge is one thing, but only with application of that knowledge does growth start to "take form" and the true seeds of change begin to take root.
4. Skill - Consistent and correct application of your newly acquired knowledge and abilities is the only way to develop a bona fide skill. A skill can be thought of as an ability that is able to be performed at a high-level with a high rate of success in its completion.
5. Habit - After executing a skill for so long, it becomes second nature. Conscious thought is no longer required to successfully execute, as a habit has developed, and to perform in any other manner yields a certain level of discomfort or at the very least, significant effort.
Although I've been in sales for the last 15 years, my membership in the Sandler President's Club has assisted me in closing more deals. I appreciated your coaching with all the different selling obstacles I faced. I highly recommend you and Sandler Training for companies that want to see immediate sales results.
