    The Psychology of Selling Workshop
    In this unique workshop we explore the psychology of selling from three different perspectives.

    The Persona of Top Salespeople
    Steve W. Martin has conducted extensive research on the attributes of top salespeople and he has interviewed thousands of top sales professionals. His findings show that the personality, verbal acuity, and the concept of situational dominance play critical roles in determining a salesperson’s success. In this workshop you will be able to test and compare yourself to sales overachievers.  
    Buyer Sales Psychology
    For a moment, put yourself in the position of your customer who is going to meet with multiple salespeople and listen to their company presentations. This session reveals how to influence the true decision maker… human nature, and the people, personalities, and politics of evaluator decision making. Understand how buyers perceive the sales salespeople they meet with and what selling style they prefer. Learn how different company departments and vertical industries make buying decisions.

    The Psychology of Selling to C-Suite Executives
    Today, it takes a comprehensive linguistic strategy to winover C-level executives. A strategy that enables a salesperson to differentiate him or herself from the competitors through Strategic value, Operational value, Political value, and Psychological value. The salesperson's most important competitive weapon is his or her mouth, and the winner is the salesperson who uses words that reduce the customer's doubt, eases his fear, and fosters fantasies. That's why it is critical that salespeople master sales linguistics, the study of how the customer's mind uses and interprets language.
