Sales Coaching

Keeping motivated

BD can be a lonely place at times. This rings true for Founders who have to ‘do their own sales,’ or for Account Managers who have taken up their first BD role right through to career BD people leading the charge.

Business Development, by its very nature can come with soaring highs and crushing lows. We’ve yet to meet anyone who doesn’t feel this if they are being honest with themselves.

The athlete coach relationship is integral. Why the hesitation with sales? Sales coaching is an opportunity for self reflection, to discuss obstacles in a safe environment and unlock potential.

From good to great

Sales coaching typically takes the form of a monthly 1-2-1 call for an hour.

At Make the Break we only coach around the topic of Business Development. That’s our thing, it is where we can add value.

Each programme is tailored to the person being coached. The sessions won’t be without their challenging moments. We go beyond looking at wins and loses and speak to you on an individual level, understanding what really matters to you. The emphasis is on open communication, positive reinforcement and building trust.

The objective is to enable you to move forward with confidence, to try out ideas and make a material improvement to the outputs of your efforts.
