Optimising Consultative Sales across Intermediated Distribution
For Deeper, Broader Retirement Conversations
Looking to grow in traditional areas whilst also diversifying and expanding into new markets, Just aimed to grow their customer base and offer a broader range of solutions. To do this, all sales teams, from the most senior Key Account Directors to the newest telephone team members, needed to embrace a more consultative approach. They needed to have more holistic conversations with advisers around customers’ broader needs and the different options Just offers.
In stream A we designed and delivered 3 x 1-day modules that explored how senior Key Account Mangers could use consultative techniques to build more holistic relationships with Just’s most important accounts. These modules looked at how to use consultative techniques when face-to-face with advisory firms. We also introduced strategic models for prioritising key accounts and building more strategic relationships.
In stream B we designed and delivered 2 x 1-day modules that explored how similar consultative techniques could be utilised in telephony conversations with smaller advisory firms and IFAs to gain a deeper understanding of their customers’ requirements and have more holistic conversations.
In addition to their modular workshops, attendees in both streams were given access to accompanying digital learning in our Key Account Management, Consultative Sales and Telephony Sales digital learning rooms.
Coupled with the in-house technical training that was provided, the Sales Excellence programme has achieved a lasting legacy of change across the organisation. The impact has been described by senior leaders as “transformational”, and Just have quickly seen improvements in the confidence and capability across their sales population.
Just fully embraced the training, adding banners, posters and mouse-mats with key reminders across their office to aid application and embedding.
