This is just as an important component to their skills, as their understanding of features or benefits in their offering. If sales people can’t understand how to evoke confidence at the decision-making level, million dollar deals will slide off the table. By taking advantage of The Ken Blanchard Companies proven approach to leadership development with Blanchard Certified, companies with limited training budgets and geographically dispersed sales forces can excel their sales force abilities.” said Scott Blanchard, Co-founder of Blanchard Certified.
