How to Pre-train Your Sales Force

One of my clients, recently came up with a fantastic way of training his sales force in our methodology.

When he hires a new salesperson he issues them a copy of our newest series, The Science of Successful In-Home Selling, but does so without giving them the workbook that normally accompanies it. He then tells them that they have to listen to the entire series prior to their training taking place (this period is approximately one week). He also makes sure to get a copy of their credit card, the reason for this being that if they decide to skip out with the copy of the album he will charge their card for the full retail price of the copy.

Then, he issues them a test which he has devised by removing some of the key concepts and ideas from the workbook. This occurs on day one of their training and ensures that the new trainee has taken the necessary time to listen to the material.

The learning curve of his first training class of the year improved dramatically because the new trainee had a fundamental understanding of the selling process prior to coming into training.
