Cold Calling

It’s not for the faint of heart. However, making phone calls to perfect strangers is a business staple. Without it, businesses stagnate, growth slows, teams become insular, and salespeople become flabby.

Unfortunately, it’s also one of the worst-handled domains of the professional training playbook. Myriad tricks and techniques are proffered which no one receiving a cold call would want to be receiving.

 

This course deals with the business imperative of cold calling (we must talk with strangers) by focusing on high-intergity positioning of yourself, your motivations, and your services.

 

Key topics include:

  • Engaging assistants effectively

  • Eliminating ‘cold call tone’

  • Turns of phrase that work and feel fine

The program includes:

1.

Pre-work Curriculum

  • Preparatory coverage of core concepts (Mechanics, Content, Style) prior to the workshop

  • Option to train live or online
