On 8th September 2022, we were joined by Chris Lytle, author of The Accidental Salesperson to discuss the tricky topic of influence. The webinar was recorded and can be viewed below:
As long as you’re in business, you’re in sales. Granted, you might not be in a traditional ‘sales’ role. Maybe your job title is ‘business analyst’ or ‘product manager’. Chances are you’re having to forge relationships and exercise influence. You may be in situations where you need to influence without having authority. All while simultaneously balancing a whole range of stakeholders’ needs.
You might be selling a product, internal service, or even an idea.
If this sounds familiar, then this is the webinar for you! During this fast-paced, interactive webinar, you’ll hear from Chris Lytle. He wrote The Accidental Salesperson, a book that has sold over 50,000 copies worldwide.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
- The critical difference between a Level 1 and Level 4 relationship with an internal or external customer.
- How stakeholders or customers can be “seeded” to enhance trust and build the relationship.
- How to become the ‘go-to’ person that customers or stakeholders seek out.
And much more . . .
