How to Interact Strategically
In this video, Edward sets out an excellent model for preparing to persuade. Use it to prepare for meetings and conversations.
How to Resolve Conflict
Salespeople focus on maintaining harmony however, some level of conflict is bound to arise if the salesperson makes any attempt to influence an outcome that is not going his or her way. Add to this the necessity to deal with post sales issues and it becomes clear that conflict management is an important aspect of success. Then if we bend the technique presented in this video to persuasion in any setting, we can increase our persuasiveness.
Saying No Without Saying No
Use this team building and and collaboration technique to increase customer understanding, messaging alignment, and influence.
Six Hidden Factors of Motivation
From a sales perspective, consider how these factors would impact customer dialogue. Think about the question you might ask to discover the motivation perspective of another person. Use this model to improve sales team communication.
Ladder of Inference and how it Affects Judgement
Selling demands good judgement. Use this model to avoid mistaken assumptions that lead to bad judgement. Eliminate or minimise miss understandings, increase cooperation, and improve interpersonal communication by using this knowledge.
Stop the Drama, Do the Work
As a sales manager in two companies where their were both direct sales teams who visited the end customer to make a sale, and indirect channel account managers who sold through resellers and partnerships, I am very familiar with the conflict that Edward describes in this video. I know from painful experience how much time can be wasted by people stuck in scripted roles, as Edward describes it. Sales people and sales managers can lear a lot from this video.
Managing Resources for Output
Salespeople often need to behave as project managers. In any complex campaign that lasts more than a couple of months, the salesperson must marshal resources and ensure things get done internally as well as within the prospective customer. Use this model to eliminate or minimize constricting factors.
