    C. Lee Smith, The Sales Discovery Process Expert
    In sales, as in medicine, prescription before diagnosis is malpractice. Whether the objective is to grow an account -or to grow and develop a salesperson - the discovery stage is critical to your success.

    Enabling a sales team for high performance requires an understanding of the wants, needs, skill gaps and behavioral tendencies for each individual salesperson. Many managers limit their effectiveness by falling back on the activities found in the CRM, but the things that lead to higher performance – attitude, motivation, sales aptitude and (the typically overlooked) soft skills – can also be measured. These analytics often reveal WHY sales representatives aren’t selling more and reaching the next level of sales performance.

    Mastering these metrics, and how to use them, makes it easier for managers to adapt sales coaching, development and reinforcement of sales training for maximum and sustainable impact.


    You will learn:

    1.The 10 things sales managers must know about every sales rep that you won’t find in Salesforce.
    2.How sales team discovery improves the effectiveness of sales training, coaching, motivation and employee engagement.
    3.Which people skills (soft skills) are most important for peak sales performance.
    4.How the discovery process stacks the deck in your favor when hiring and retaining your best performers.

    An Ideal Client Profile (ICP) is a detailed description of the clients who would benefit most from your product/service. These clients are more likely to buy in to your vision, advocate for you, and ultimately stay a long term profitable client.

    -It’s harder to retain clients long-term
    -You’re more likely to bring on poor-fit clients who drain your resources
    -It’s confusing as to which marketing channels to use
    -It’s more challenging to improve the product/service to be in line with your clientele

    1.How to analyze your existing client base to understand which clients fit your ICP
    2.How to also uncover who are the clients who are BAD fits, so you can avoid them
