Five Ways to Show Sellers the Benefits of Enterprise Sales Training
Sellers would rather spend their time selling than doing anything else – and that includes advanced sales training courses. As you build your plan for advanced sales training, it's important to show even experienced sellers how investing and understanding a complex sales methodology helps them exceed their quotas and grow their win rates. To do so, we recommend that you take the following steps:
- Walk the talk. Ensure that all sales leaders and managers highlight the importance of training, and make sure the sales force recognizes that developing advanced sales skills is an urgent initiative with the backing of executives.
- Set expectations. Explain to the sales force why you're offering advanced sales training by linking it to company, department and individual goals.
- Tie the training to seller motivations. Explain what's in it for them. How can the advanced sales training improve their selling skills and lead to tangible improvements in their sales results, including quota attainment? Use specific examples to show sellers that it's worth their time to invest in the sales training.
- Help sellers understand that advanced sales training is a process. Many salespeople think that training stops with onboarding. Embed sales training courses into your organization's culture as a part of your ongoing learning and development initiatives and include it in your development plans so it becomes part of your sales team's goals.
- Explain how buyer expectations have changed. Buyers are more informed than ever, and they're engaging sellers later in the sales process. Even the most seasoned salespeople can benefit from learning advanced sales techniques to break the buyer apathy loop.

Mapping Your Advanced Sales Training to a Sales Capability Model
What gets measured gets managed, and sales training should be treated the same as any other business discipline. A sales capability model turns the guesswork behind ad hoc, informal sales training and coaching into a formal process that ties development needs to sales performance.
There are four steps to take to align sales training with sales capabilities:
- Establish goals for your sales training program. Sales leaders should set expectations for the impact of sales training on business strategies and sales results.
- Evaluate the current state of the organization's advanced sales training. Look for the gaps in training for your sales force. Then create a roadmap to fill those gaps with appropriate development tools and resources.
- Ensure that your advanced sales training aligns with the customer experience. Tailor your development offerings to the challenges that your sales force encounters at each stage of the buyer's journey.
- Inventory your existing training plans. Assess your current training offerings to ensure they are consistent with the buyer journey, the skill profile of your sales force and your goals. Discard anything that is no longer relevant to your organization's priorities and objectives.
