Program Overview

Consultative Selling is dead. Solution Selling is in the rear-view mirror. The old playbook no longer plays.

You Learn:
  • The 5Cs of Trust-Based Selling and how to interweave them into every call
  • Unique approaches to early, mid and late cycle calls
  • How to prepare with less paper and greater strategy
  • How to execute on each call – focusing on high impact, insight-based questioning
  • A VIP follow up strategy that adds value and enhances next call in-the-door rates
  • Resources that best of breed banks are using to improve win rates and add value to client, prospect and COI relationships
You Get Tools:
  • GOAL Questioning Guide – to help create a client-centric dialogue
  • Conversation Recap – that replaces dull follow up letters
  • Planning Diagnostics – job aides that guide call preparation
