Helping Clients Succeed: Qualifying Opportunities
Sales Leadership Basecamp
Sales Performance
“Nowhere in the sales process do a few minutes of dialogue more quickly determine whether we continue or end our relationship than during the initial interaction.”


The Challenge

How qualified are the opportunities in your team’s pipeline?

Our experience with over 35,000 sales professionals all over the world—in large, medium, and small-sized companies—has revealed three predictable behaviors that most sales people experience:

  • First is their reluctance to stop pursuing weak opportunities because they’re afraid they won’t hit their quota.
  • Next is their apparent rush to close the deal without taking the time to really understand their client’s needs.
  • Finally, the third behavior is the sales person’s inability to handle objections and pushbacks effectively.

The results are often over-investing in the wrong people and opportunities, under-investing in the right opportunities, and leaving money on the table by failing to uncover the business issues their clients are really striving for.


The good news is, these behaviors can be replaced with new and effective behaviors.


With FranklinCovey’s Helping Clients Succeed: Qualifying Opportunities, sales professionals learn how to widen their relationship footprint into larger and more strategic opportunities while focusing on the right deals and developing the mindsets and skillsets of top performers.


The results are lower cost of salesincreased deal sizesincreased win rates, and delighted customers!
