By far, the biggest issue with corporate sales training is that most of what you or your sales team learns at the event is gone within days of attending. Statistics show that when stepping back into the pressure and demands of the sales arena, most sellers revert to their old, established sales practices. What can be done to ensure that the time and money invested in sales training isn’t wasted? On this episode of The Modern Selling podcast, I had the honor of speaking with Dave Mattson, the President of Sandler Training. His organization conducts sales training for organizations large and small and he has years of insight into what makes a good training event—and more importantly, how to make what is learned at a corporate sales training event stick with your team so you can achieve the results you hope for.

Dave has a few other tips for getting the most out of your next corporate sales training event, so listen to this episode to ensure you can make the most of it! When You Attend A Sales Training, Are You Only Looking For Tactics? Dave points out that most sales professionals who attend a training event arrive with hopes of unearthing tactics that will help them with a specific issue or problem. That’s fine, but tactics alone won’t increase sales effectiveness. Dave has learned over 30 years in the sales world that three things are required to ensure growth. He calls it the Success Triangle and the three points on the triangle represent:  Attitude  Behavior  Technique Dave does a masterful job of explaining exactly what he means by each of these components and he gives practical illustrations of how they look in the sales context. You’ll want to listen to hear them described. But he also talks about the...
