Hosting its next event at The Itasca Country Club in Illinois on May 7, EDPA Midwest will talk about “The Trifecta AE: How to Harness the Power in Each Phase,” to be presented by Gail Behun, vice president of sales at MG Design and principal of the Into the Ocean Consulting, a sales leadership firm.
We all know the traditional triangle boasting “good-fast-cheap”; you only ever get two out of three. Well, as selling has evolved to be more complicated, we see Account Executives splitting a similar triangle. Selling now falls into three distinct phases;
- NBD hunting
- Gathering; taking an RFP and managing the many complexities of running the team, bonding with the client and the magic moment of pitching the solution
- Tribal leadership, aka farming
During this session, we’ll discuss how to identify the key skill sets among your account teams.
We will discuss models to train, empower and compensate leaders in each category, enabling you to win and grow business by exploiting your team strength – and strengthening their weaknesses.
