  1. out of 5


    Since I took the training, I’ve noticed several areas in which I’ve improved considerably. Cold calling is easier. I know now that I can find a common ground and get the customer’s interest, even if I start with bare bones information. Another area is overcoming objections. Since I took “Sales Excellence,” I don’t seem to hear the word “no,” and I sure won’t offer it! . . . I’m getting more information from my customers with less effort. Finally, I’m doing what I’ve tried to do since I started in sales, which is get rapport with the customer, find out what they want, and show them how what I have can help them. Only now, I’m doing it with specific skills for each step of the process. It’s terrific!
