"Participants easily understood the Personal Style Indicator and style-shifting. More important, because of its practical, straightforward nature, I believe participants will be able to easily use the Personal Style Indicator back on the job."

July's Focus on Training

The Selbst Group Inc. is an international sales training and consulting organization dedicated to helping clients grow their top line. Founded in 1974, Selbst Group serves the financial services industry exclusively. Their mission is to enable their clients to provide their salespeople and sales managers with the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their potential. They do this through training in sales, sales management, and marketing-support programs.

Working with salespeople and managers of a global bank, they have used the Sales Style Indicator to enable participants to understand their own selling styles and how they might be the same or different from their colleagues. This has resulted in more cross-selling and cross-referral opportunities through the use/modification of practices that work for colleagues and the internal team.

Selbst also helps their clients use the information in the SSI to identify their clients’ buying styles. Success rates go up when the salesperson is able to match his or her sales style with the client’s buying style. Selbst teaches style-shifting techniques to enable the salesperson to communicate more effectively with the customer. This training has resulted in Selbst’s clients being able to do business with prospects that were initially perceived as difficult.

When working with sales managers, the Selbst Group uses the SSI as a tool to help them manage, lead, and coach their salespeople. It is applied in very much the same way. First the manager's style is determined. Then each salesperson’s style is determined through the use of the instrument, resulting in an accurate style definition. Selbst then shows managers how to use this information to understand and work more effectively with their sales teams.

SALES STYLE INDICATOR  - Ordering Information

Without sales, there wouldn’t be a business. We often hear from our Associates that “sales” is the one part of their business that they don’t like to think about—along with paying taxes. (If you have no sales, you won’t have to worry about taxes.)

The Sales Style Indicator (SSI) is a learning and communication tool to help individuals identify and utilize their natural preferences for completing the sales process. It assists sales professionals to assess their preferred way of selling and challenges them to increase their sales-style flexibility.

By doing so, salespeople and sales teams establish better rapport, trust, and credibility with current and prospective clients, as well as other team members. Individuals learn the importance of creating long-term relationships to ensure repeat business and increased sales.

The SSI covers 21 different sales-style patterns. It brings to the table an understanding of the different selling and buying styles and provides an action plan for participants to use to increase their strengths and work on their limitations, thereby ensuring a more effective sales career. 

Uses for the SSI:

  • Assessing Natural Sales Styles
  • Understanding the Different “Buying” Styles
  • Increasing Your Power to Influence
  • Learning to Persuade with TRUST
  • Developing Leadership skills
  • Matching the Right Salesperson to Various Situations

Become more effective in the selling process and leave your competition in the dust! Make the Sales Style Indicator a permanent part of your sales team.
