|"Sales" is not a dirty word! Selling Executive Coaching services or
any professional services to corporations can be challenging, particularly
given the abstract, intangible nature of those services. Complicating that is
our sometimes negative perception about sales and selling. For many of us the
concept of sales conjures up images of sleazy used car salesmen, pushy
telemarketing calls during dinner, the onslaught of catalogs that plague our
mailboxes, or hearing a pitch from a door-to-door solicitor or vendor. For
others of us, the activity required to generate sales causes us anxiety or
feels intrusive or uncomfortable. We don't want to force ourselves on others,
we want to help others!
In this interactive, ten-session course you
will take new actions and alter your mindsets about business development in a
way that will open the door for you to grow your coaching/professional services
business in the way YOU want. Once you understand and can use the systematic
process, concrete approach, and focused format for selling professional
services into organizations, you can easily seal the deal using your own
natural style and personality.

enjoyed being on the phone with you!"
" This class was very helpful for
me in expanding my business."
"I very much enjoyed everybody's progress
in the class, and I very much enjoyed so much content and energy from you,
Suzi, your very direct and nurturing style, and the fact that you really work
in a very different style than I do and with a different population, it's been
a wonderful addition to hear from you and have that relationship and learning
going forward. I think this has been invaluable."
"I found it extremely
useful and I do hope that over a period of time I'll have the fluidity that
Suzi has with coming up with questions so rapidly and designing meetings."
"I really liked it very much. I liked talking about implementation and
the process of doing, and getting clients. Thank you."

energized by not only your energy, Suzi, but also your articulation. And it
reminds me of what's called stroke production in tennis, that is as you get
more efficient with your strokes you can produce them better, and play the game
faster and harder."
