      “Dan really did a great job advising me. I constructed the email, sent it off to the prospect—it was a little bit more pushy than I normally do, but I think that was beneficial—and they responded saying, ‘yep, we’re going to go with you guys. Send us a contract and we’re going to sign it.’ And now we’re working with them, and it’s been really great.”

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Who is the IMPACT Sales Coaching System intended for?

      The IMPACT Sales Coaching System is a training reinforcement program designed for sales reps who have been trained in IMPACT Selling, or any of The Brooks Group’s advanced training courses. The program includes 8 weekly sessions virtually led by an expert sales coach, and begins after a 2-day sales training program has been completed.

      How many participants are in each reinforcement group?

      The LMS system used in the coaching and reinforcement program seats 12 virtual participants. Clients with larger sales teams will have team members broken into groups of 12 or fewer to ensure each salesperson receives the coaching attention needed to achieve maximum sales performance post-training.

      What makes a good sales training reinforcement strategy?

      To ensure that new skills are being applied with prospects and customers after training, a reinforcement strategy must take a hands-on approach. Adult learning research shows that experiential learning is key for new skills to become habit. The IMPACT Sales Coaching System allows sales reps to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and apply it with real opportunities—while under the guidance of an expert sales coach. This methodology gives sellers confidence and solidifies the training into their everyday routine.

      How does the system help define and measure success?

      The IMPACT Sales Coaching System gives sales managers and stakeholders insight into how each participant is progressing. Participation is tracked, along with quiz scores and homework assignments, so more attention can be given to challenge areas and an ongoing coaching plan can be identified.

      In addition, The Brooks Group issues an ROI survey after the 8-week coaching program is complete to identify various success markers, including:

      • Additional sales that participants attribute to the training
      • Increase in sales volume
      • Change in average sale amount
      • Performance to quota
      • Length of sales cycle
      • And more
