Certified Sales Professional – The Mark of Excellence in Professional Sales.
For over 20 years, Certified Sales Professionals (CSP) have represented the gold standard in sales, demonstrating a commitment to excellence that opens the door to better career opportunities and higher earning potential.
CSPs know what top performers know, and have the skills and follow-through to get consistently good results. A professional designation marks their commitment to being the best.
The Certified Sales Professional (CSP) program gives a thorough understanding of consultative selling. From business creation to improved time and territory management; goal-setting to prospecting, and everything in between, attendees return to the territory with a renewed enthusiasm for selling.
This ISMM endorsed course is perfectly positioned for those starting a career in sales.
It is also of great benefit to experienced sales professionals who would like to refresh their selling skills and techniques with the latest developments in this vibrant field, and to other professionals keen on understanding the sales function in general.
While this course focuses on providing participants with core knowledge about sales as a function and as a process, it will also give them an in-depth understanding of self-management, the art of prospecting, opportunity planning, and resource allocation.
Besides, participants will acquire several skills related to negotiating deals, overcoming obstacles, resolving customer issues and closing sales.
Certified Sales Professional program goes beyond the technicalities of making a sale and goes deep into the psychology behind it.
If there is one key to this powerful program, it’s the principle of consistency and commitment. Science has shown that the unconscious mind works tirelessly to make real whatever it has been programmed to do. It uses habits – or automatic actions — to execute its game plan.
This course is accredited by ISM UK.
