Learn essential sales skills to sell your ideas and suggestions successfully to your team, sponsor/customer and other project stakeholders.
The essence of selling is to initiate a relationship, identify others' needs, suggest a course of action, obtain agreement and then "close" the sale. This process needs to also be applied to the management of projects. Unfortunately this skill is often overlooked in project training. Attend this workshop to learn how to apply sales skills to project management.
This workshop will examine three different “salesman hats” you need to wear, when “selling” to the project team, your management and customers/sponsors.
Based on best practice sales techniques, this workshop uses personality profiles (Myers Briggs) to identify your preferred approach to sales. It will help you recognise techniques that work best in different situations, and with a variety of project stakeholders. You will also learn good presentation skills and techniques.
The workshop uses an interactive approach with short drills and project environment based role plays to practice new skills and identify your personal style. The facilitators will use accelerated adult learning methods that are fast paced and fun. This approach focuses on the premise that “what I do I understand”.
