3DCSS™

Core Sales Skills Program

The essential sales skills for customer-centric selling.

Does your sales team add value to your client’s business? Great salespeople earn trust by tuning into the customer, bringing insight to their issues, and suggesting potential solutions. They don’t just talk about value; they create it from the customer’s point of view.

Imparta’s Core Selling Skills program is one of three programs aimed at salespeople involved with inbound and outbound selling (i.e. opportunity management). 3DCSS™ is for relatively new or junior salespeople and also sales through service teams. The program includes foundation skills like questioning and rapport building with optional modules on Time & Territory Management, Mastering Virtual Presence, and Communication Styles.

3DCSS™ is available in variants for core B2B sales skills, and for a Sales through Service context.
