Sales Training Delivery Options
Critical Selling Skills can be delivered in a variety of ways:
Onsite Instructor-Led Sales Training
This classroom delivery option allows for a comprehensive learning environment equipped with role plays, case studies, group discussions, and other interactive activities enabling participants to easily transfer new skills from the classroom to the real world.
Virtual Instructor-Led Sales Training
Different from typical, self-paced e-learning environments, our online option is delivered by a live Janek facilitator, enabling participants to experience the same level of interaction they would in a physical classroom, utilizing technology.
This delivery method combines the ease of e-learning modules with traditional face-to-face teaching and allows participants to learn at their own pace while providing the benefits of group interaction and individual instruction.
Our Train-the-Trainer option will certify your internal training staff on the skills, processes, support tools, and methods necessary for the highest quality ongoing, internal delivery.
Janek’s training implementation approach
Our training implementation is guided by a proven world-class approach.
Analyze & Plan
Before we deploy training, we take time to understand the current state of your organization. This situational fluency enables us to plan for successful training implementation.
Tailor & Prepare
With a foundational understanding of your organization, we can customize our services and materials to ensure our training delivers the greatest possible results. While we prepare the training, we’ll also help make sure everyone on your team is ready to receive it.
Learn & Practice
Janek training gives your managers and salespeople the opportunity to learn new skills and practice them in group workshops and role-playing sessions. We offer flexible training delivery — choose between instructor-led classroom, instructor-led online, train-the-trainer, eLearning, or a blended approach.
Assess & Report
Post-training, we take the time to understand the outcomes of our work together, then report on performance improvements and ROI. We’ll use this opportunity to identify any new roadblocks that have arisen and create a plan to overcome them.
Sustain & Reinforce
Research shows that without reinforcement, 87% of new knowledge and skills are lost within 90 days. Janek offers several options for training sustainment that transform short-term improvements into long-term solutions, including Xpert (our desktop and mobile app), TOPS (a sustainment playbook for managers), and ongoing sales coaching.
