Why Acclivus sales negotiation works

This powerful training programme is based on the principle that by aligning needs, a salesperson can elevate relationships and ensure mutually beneficial outcomes. 

The interactive role-plays are based ONLY on current client opportunities which the sellers bring with them to the class.

Instructors with extensive sales backgrounds across a number of industries guide powerful discussions and activities. This experiential learning process ultimately leads to sales professionals truly ‘wanting’ to take this fresh approach to closing deals without discounting price.

Participants leave this workshop feeling confident to negotiate as never before.

The mindset shift comes from:

   >      Discovering how to build the power necessary to strengthen their negotiating positions

   >      Learning concrete ways to elevate relationships even with the toughest of customers

   >      Committing to prepare for negotiations early and having the tools and process to do so

   >      Working with colleagues in role plays based on challenging, real-world customer situations

   >      Learning to recognise negotiating tactics and knowing how to confidently deal with them
