Your team will learn actionable techniques for handling objections, negotiating, closing deals and winning opportunities away from the competition.



This course is particularly beneficial if you close – or want to.
If you’re in sales development but want to move to an account executive role, or you’re an account executive who still prospects, then this course is for you.
If you’re in client success or account management, we also recommend the Driving to Close program.

Topics include:


In this session we discuss the main goal of negotiations, when to negotiate and the importance of objectivity and equality throughout the entire process.


In this session we explore why objections are so challenging for sales reps to deal with and how to put ourselves in the best position to handle them effectively.


In this session we talk about the challenge of closing and why it’s important to not only think of closing at the end of the sale process, we need to practice at every stage.
