SMASH THE BOX

If you said yes to any one or all of these questions, you're ready to SMASH THE BOX!

Improv 4 Sales
1 Day Workshop
Use the art of improvisation to improve your company's top and bottom line by developing meaningful relationships with your clients. Any successful improviser must quickly develop relationships with his partner while on stage and this in part is accomplished by using the “Yes And” technique. In addition, most salespeople are conditioned to ask question, after question, after question. The problem with this model is that a relationship doesn't form one must learn to make statements.
* Learn the “Yes And” Technique which keeps deals alive and creates a positive work environment
* The Power of “Making Statements” develops personnel and moves the story forward
* Be in the moment by reacting off your client, rather than, anticipating what you are going to say next
* Read and react off your client's body language which is the key to communication- 93% of communication is non-verbal
