Ideal Candidate Backgrounds

Most successful candidates come from one of two backgrounds:

  • Corporate sales leadership role – Looking to break out on your own? Always wanted to advise and teach while still selling? Interested in working with sales leaders to drive their performance? RAIN Group may be for you.
  • Self-employed independent - Have an existing consulting or training practice? Want to focus more on building a practice and working with clients vs. all the distractions of running a company? Ready to play a bigger game with bigger clients? RAIN Group may be for you.

Challenge of Independent Consulting

Just a short while ago you could hang a shingle, write a brochure, and go sell and deliver sales training and consulting. Now you need white papers, an always-updated blog, research, a robust product suite, education and reinforcement technologies, blended learning, a rich professional website, and more just to compete.

And getting leads was much easier. Not anymore. Small firm practitioners can spend more than full time doing activities other than selling and delivering client work, and it’s still not enough.

Partnering with RAIN Group relieves these burdens, allowing our Consulting Partners the ability to focus on doing what they want to do: sell and (if they are so inclined) deliver client work.

Two Successful Models - Seller and Seller/Consultant

There are two common paths to Consulting Partner success:

  • Primarily Selling: Find, win, and lead accounts with other delivery resources primarily doing the work.
  • Seller/Consultants: Find, win and lead accounts while also delivering the work you want and our suited to deliver.

  • Passion, commitment, intensity, and focus in finding and winning new clients, and retaining them for the long term
  • Responsibility for their own sales and success
