Ever wondered the amount of business opportunities lost in your organization because your sales person lacked “chemistry” with your clients?

We live in the time of Homogeneity. One salesperson is just like the other. They know their products and their companies. They recite their product benefits by heart. They typically ask one open question after another. Their clients don’t remember them after a few hours. The reason for being easily forgettable is simple: they were trained in old sales techniques that focus on Feature-Advantage-Benefit (FAB) or asking questions.

To today’s sophisticated customer, one salesperson is just like the other. Customers have developed a wide range of defence-mechanisms against typical sales methods. Customers expect their representatives to already know their business and how their products/services can benefit them. However, we are also living in an entertainment culture. We remember the story a charismatic speaker told us in their speech at a conference, but we don’t remember the slides of previous presentations.

Customers are drawn by the energy and personality of a salesperson who goes beyond selling. Partnering with them is simply a positive experience. This is why we developed Quota Charisma. This program is for the sales person that wants to stand out in a crowd and have a stronger ‘connection’ with their clients.

Quota Charisma trained salespeople simply means more business for you! Charisma can be taught!

What you will learn:

  • How to stand out from the competition
  • How to get more recommendations and higher closing percentages
  • How to achieve greater customer satisfaction
  • How to get more up selling and cross selling


Most sales people will tell you about different sales training courses they have taken over the years. In most cases they will tell you they learned some new skills and forgot much of what they were taught. This is why the Quota System Reinforcement Program was designed and is so important.

Within a year of the Quota experience, QSRP is the perfect follow up and compliment to ensure that your sales team maximizes their retention of the competencies and skills learned during the core Quota System programs.
