“I think the more that we can put online to do self-paced learning, the better. I think the more that we can provide micro-learning environments, the better. People are wise enough and disciplined enough and have the technology now to train at their own pace. And we should be doing things that ascribe to that belief… And it should be fun and entertaining.”– Bob Milani, Principal Consultant at REM Consulting Pro
What goes into a great training strategy?
Bob explains that a well-trained sales team can lead to very large returns for a company. He identifies the value in a micro-learning environment and reveals that people base their buying decisions on trust and believability. Sales training is a competitive advantage with the caliber of the salesperson being the most important factor that influences any prospect’s decision to buy. Bob discusses the value in a direct feedback, field-based component to sales training.
“you should be really looking deeply at who you are as a company and maybe what your value proposition is. Do you really understand why people would buy from you versus a competitor? Do you have a sales process in mind or one that you’re ascribing to? Is it working for you? What key measures are you using to track your sales effectiveness? Are you increasing your sales funnel or increasing your close ratio? If not, what are you doing about it? And then do you have the right compensation model in mind to drive behavior.”
