Make Your Message Stick
Influence More Effectively
So much comes at people in any given day. If you want your salespeople to really hear you, using a story to illustrate a key coaching message will help you cut through the noise and be heard. In 1-3 minutes, you can share information in a compelling way to increase performance.
Ever wonder why some coaching sticks and some doesn’t? For a salesperson to change a behavior it’s critical that the message be clear. Stories will add credibility to your message. By making it real, you will be able to inspire the right actions.
Stronger Relationships with your Team
Engaging in the use of stories creates a stronger, more compelling message. When you humanize a message through a story, you build trust, and trust leads to stronger relationships. Sometimes a tough message is better received through a story.
Your salespeople should use stories with their customers and when using them in coaching, you set the bar for differentiated communication. Not only are you getting through in a way that’s differentiated, but you are also modeling an effective approach for your salespeople to use with customers.
