Learn the Personality Traits to Succeed in Sales and Business Development

July 11, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Are your sales where you want them to be? Would you like to increase your sales? Are you aware of your blind spots when it comes to sales?


Then you don’t want to miss this workshop!


Learning more about personalities and how to connect with them, allows for more effective communication and rapport.

Connection increases buy-in. People buy from those they like. People like people they can connect with. Discover the blind spots that may be keeping you from connecting with your clients.

Learn how others are wired using DISC theory, the International language of personalities. The DISC theory brings awareness of the 4 Primary styles known as Dominant, Influencer, Steady and Compliant and how each one thinks and communicates differently.

Through fun interactive exercises, gain awareness of people’s primary communication style. Learn how you can make every communication an opportunity for connection and understanding of what the client needs.

What’s in it for You:

· Learn how to connect with those who think and communicate differently allowing for your communication (sales pitch) to be heard

· Discover your own unique behaviour style, recognizing your strengths, limitations, expectations, fears and more importantly blind spots ( what do you do that may disconnect you from others)
