Oct. 31, 2012 - PRLog -- SAN DIEGO, CA -- Blanchard Certified, a web-based leadership development solution, announces the selection by Ascom (US) Inc., a leading supplier of mission critical on-site wireless communications, to enhance the leadership skills of their U.S. based sales force.

Ascom is a dynamic and growing organization. Partnering with Blanchard Certified allows Ascom sales executives to achieve increased self-awareness while establishing a common language of leadership and growth opportunities within the organization.

“Leadership training is vital in helping sales executives align to a corporate vision as well as connect with both internal and external clients, but businesses often forgo it because of the cost. With Blanchard Certified, sales executives gain greater awareness and control of how they interact with customers. 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.

Upon completion of the program, professionals become Blanchard Certified™, meaning they have proven that they understand the essential elements of leadership and are successfully applying them in the workplace. This solution and standard of certification were built on two principles. First, people want to excel in their positions. In order to do that, professionals need to have ease and accessibility to engage in effective and relevant content. The second principle is sustainability. Blanchard Certified method immediately allows professionals to put their learning into practice and enabling them to sustain their knowledge, as well as evolve into new beliefs and behaviors. Blanchard Certified is the hub where tools, learning and a community of users can support each other.

This is what I believe is the strength of Blanchard Certified. It allows us to adjust more successfully to each individual.”
