Sales training: Have you tried coaching ?

Few people think about using a coach to train for sales training. However, if training in sales techniques can be effective in the short term, nothing beats regular coaching to continuously improve or remain a top salesperson!

Many people only seek training before or at the beginning of their professional career. By focusing on either their university education or their early work experience, these people often forget to continue training over the years, and let their knowledge and skills stagnate or become obsolete.

Sales is a constantly evolving sector, driven by daily risk-taking and innovation. While some sales techniques have theoretically not changed for generations, the entire sales environment is constantly evolving.

Body language, sense of contact, relationship building, environment, trust, attitude… all these implicit techniques that distinguish an average salesperson from a leader are changing with the society, and need to be constantly re-invented.

Training in sales techniques and coaching

For a beginner in sales, an initial training is essential, to master the basic techniques. But once this initial training has been completed, no theoretical in-depth study is worth the practical experience in the field, and the daily advice of an experienced sales coach.

Starting doing sales without experience? It’s possible!

Geninc coaches train and coach beginners every week. The key to their success? let them experiment: We think that watching an excellent salesperson in the field, before practicing yourself, is better than several months of theoretical sales training.

At geninc, whatever his or her level of experience, a salesperson can always benefit from the advice of a mentor, to improve his or her results or make important decisions for the rest of his or her career.
