In a competitive marketplace, your sales team will stand out
For more than 25 years, Ariel has developed, tested, and refined powerful and authentic communication skills to drive better business performance. In Agile Storytelling, our experienced facilitators combine best practices from actor training with specific, actionable business behaviors to teach your sales team to:
- Build rapport with prospects
Engaging and relevant stories help prospects connect with your sales team.
- Convey the value of your product or service
Good stories stick and lead to meaningful conversations. Prospects pay attention and retain information about your products or services when it is presented in the form of a story, particularly when it’s made relevant to their situation.
- Move prospects to take action
Painting a compelling picture of how a service or product can meet prospects’ objectives helps them get behind it.
