Sales Coaching

Sales Coaching (3DSC™)

Growing your business by growing your people.

Imparta’s research shows a strong, direct correlation between a manager’s ability to coach and the performance of their team.

Sales managers are often promoted because they are great salespeople; that risks them being bad coaches. They know what to do, so they tell people what to do.

Good coaches act differently. They help people to figure things out for themselves so they can do it on their own next time. That improves performance, increases team engagement, and reduces staff turnover.

Imparta’s 3D Sales Coaching programme provides:

Sales Coaching - deep coaching skills

Deep Coaching Skills

Drawing on the three dimensions of Insight, Influence and Trust, 3DSC training helps managers to drive individual and business performance.

Sales Coaching - experiential learning

Experiential Learning

Managers learn by doing, through a service of realistic and challenging coaching scenarios, and our reinforcement tools ensure they continue coaching with the right frequency and to the right level.

Sales Coaching - integration with sales training

Integration with Sales Training

3DSC training is often run back to back with a one-day version of the training that the team is going through. We also provide coach-the-coach services to help embed coaching behaviours.

Coaching from sales managers is critical for us: Imparta has helped us to focus the activities of managers on those that create improved sales capabilities, making them more effective, and dramatically improved our performance.

    Immersion

    Immerse yourself fully into the situation to be coached. Create a good coaching environment, build rapport, and bring insight to the issues that need to be worked on. Then go beyond, to explore how the coachee is feeling about the issue, and about the coaching conversation itself.

    Options

    Ask insightful questions that lead the coachee to identify options for achieving their goal. Use creativity tools to help them develop a robust set of options, and help to prioritise the ones they will commit to, based on effort and impact.

    Way Forward

    Help the coachee to formulate a plan they will commit to, including next steps, any resources they will need, what risks they should consider, and how (and when) they would like to follow up with you. Build their motivation to act, and ensure they trust that you will support them.
