You Can Help Salespeople Burdened with Sales Weaknesses

Posted by Dave Kurlan on Sun, Jan 22, 2012 @ 23:01 PM

If you have been reading my Blog for a while you know that there is more to selling than just utilizing skills to execute the sales process, sales model, and sales methodology.  The big, hidden, 600 pound gorilla in all this is the combination of hidden weaknesses that prevent salespeople from executing.

Objective Management Group identifies five big ones and a dozen or so additional weaknesses that cause problems for salespeople.  Most salespeople have at least 3 of the big ones and average a total of 9 weaknesses all together.Sales Weaknesses are a heavy burdern

Sadly, most sales training and sales trainers are unable to help salespeople overcome these weaknesses because their focus is primarly the sales skills and methodology that they teach.  That puts tremendous pressure on sales managers who are simply not equipped to help salespeople overcome things like:

  • Need for Approval (prevents them from asking lots of good, tough, timely questions)
  • Non Supportive Buy Cycle (causes them to empathize with stalls, put-offs and objections)
  • Self-Limting Record Collection (negative self-talk that sobotages sales outcomes)
  • Uncomfortable Talking about Money (not able to have an in-depth financial discussion)
  • Tendency to Become Emotional (temporary panic when things don't go as planned)
  • Difficulty Recovering from Rejection (takes too long to get back on the horse)
  • Being Too Trusting of What Prospects Say (they believe the stalls and put-offs)
  • Not Being Goal Orientated (they lack purpose and incentive)
  • many more
Is there anything you can do?
Yes, there is.  Have you heard of SalesMind?
You can have your salespeople work with the SalesMind CD. It helps them overcome these weaknesses - and more - through subliminal programming.  Even better?  It works!  I've been using SalesMind with salespeople for years and it always does the trick.
It works like magic, it works quickly (usually within 3 weeks) and effortlessly.  Your salespeople simply put the CD in the computer, watch the screen, and listen to the audio (only one program at a time) twice daily for 21 days.  And poof.  The weakness is gone.  Salesmind sells for just $99.
If you are interested in getting SalesMind for your and/or your salespeople you can email me.
