Insight Selling: Advanced Consultative Selling

Inspire buyers with insights and new ideas—advanced consultative selling skills.

The landscape of buying and selling has changed more in recent years than it has in preceding decades. Buyers are more sophisticated and awash with information. At the same time, executives are searching—often in vain—for new ways to innovate, compete, and improve their success.

Insight Selling, our advanced consultative selling program, teaches your team how to harness the power of ideas to inspire buyers, become change agents, and differentiate based on the value they bring to the table.

Today’s buyers value sellers who bring them new ideas and insights, yet most sellers don't have the skills to do this consistently.

Insight Selling teaches your team how to develop insights and inspire buyers to think differently, influence agendas, and make the best decisions.
