SalesAbility
A Simple Foundational Methodology to Stimulate Franchise Business Development
Gerry Wienholt

Creating a foundational methodology, complete with standard terms and concepts, ensures a scalable sales approach for all personnel in your franchise operation.  This framework is simple to understand and easy to implement and defines a structure for sales development that is easy to unify a workforce with varying levels of sales and business development experience.

This consultative, relationship-based approach to selling skills is based on the “best practices” demonstrated by top salespeople in a variety of Fortune 1000 organizations. Through customized case studies, role plays, team exercises, and video models, participants in this interactive workshop learn sales process and practical selling skills to guide their customers through a defined “customer decision process.” Pre-workshop materials and post-workshop reinforcement tools ensure a systematized approach to learning that is easily transferable to the field sales environment.
