If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that the world has changed rapidly over the past couple of years. The environment that sales consultants and trainers are operating in today is not the same as even a year ago, let alone five years ago.
Sales organizations spend anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars per salesperson on sales training every year.
Some time ago, when the entrepreneur Csaba Csetenyi met with his friend, who was at that time the new head of Corvinus University of Budapest, Csaba said a few fateful words that changed the future for himself and for the university:
I recently took these pictures of mushrooms on our property that I had not seen prior to this year. Bright reds, bright oranges, whites and more. After living on this property for the past twenty years, it really surprised me that these bright colored mushrooms appeared out of nowhere.
It shouldn’t be surprising that we spend a lot of time training sales teams and coaching the sales team leaders. Our experience doing it for clients provides much insight into how to get maximum benefit from this kind of help.
Many of the greatest ideas and advances in history occur when someone takes an idea from one area of expertise, and applies it in another. For this reason, I spend a lot of time listening to, reading about, and speaking with experts in a wide variety of disciplines outside of sales.
