Salespeople in any industry need to learn the competitive principle stated clearly thousands of years ago by Sun Tzu: “If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself, but not the enemy, for every victory gained, you’ll also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will lose every battle.” This course will remind the student that the lessons, strategies and tactics of war (the ultimate competition) can teach any modern business development team how to win the battles in the 21st century marketplace.
Prior to session kick off, (up to 3) live fire (real) opportunities/targets are identified for development in the course. Using customer subject matter experts to provide crucial and timely background information, The Maher Group then develops comprehensive outlines which will allow the students to complete actionable ‘white papers’ and ‘business plans’ specific to their target of opportunity.
