No one questions that making friends is a good thing. In this workshop, participants will discover that the business of business is making friends, and the business of all sales professionals is making friends and building relationships. Strategic friendships will make or break any business, no matter how big and no matter what kind of market.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Focusing on Your Customer
To begin, participants will learn what consultative selling (or customer-focused sales) is all about. Participants will also explore the efforts vs. results matrix, and what activities can generate the biggest results for them.
What Influences People in Forming Relationships?
There are seven main things that influence people in forming relationships. During this session, we will cover what those influences are and how participants can ensure they are a positive factor in your relationships.
Joe Luft and Harry Ingraham developed the Johari Window, a way of looking at our self-awareness and our ability to ask feedback of others. We will look at the Johari Window in detail during this session, and how disclosure can help build good relationships.
How to Win Friends and Influence People
One of the most popular books ever written was Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People. We will spend this session looking at some of its tips.

The two most basic elements of good communication are asking questions and listening to others. We will cover both skills in depth during this session.
Did you know that your words convey only 7% of your message? We’ll discuss what the other 93% is made up of, and how participants can ensure that your body is sending the same message as your words.
Managing the Mingling
During this session, we will discuss some tips on mingling, including ways to remember peoples’ names.
During the important first few minutes of a new relationship, a handshake is usually the only body contact between two people. We will discuss and demonstrate the five key elements of a good handshake.

Once you have started a network of business associates, how do you organise your contacts? We will answer this question to wrap up the day.
At the end of the day, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
For details on the differences between “in-house” and “all-inclusive” please see below
We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
