We have created a fully-customizable six-to-ten-week virtual "on-boarding" program for your new or recently-hired sales people, which facilitates immediate engagement, eliminates travel and lodging costs, and enables participants to absorb material at a more comfortable pace that is consistent with adult learning styles.
Customized to meet your specific objectives and to suit your team, the program even allows various department managers from your organization to become strategically involved, each presenting an overview of how their department interacts with and supports the sales effort. The program concentrates on four key areas:
- Sales process & selling skills
- Corporate structure & resources
- Business development & networking skills
- CRM system use
