Designing a Comprehensive “Way of Sales” Program for a Business Travel Leader

Business Challenge

This leading business travel services company has committed a significant investment in sales resources to expand its presence in a high priority market segment. While they have made great strides in building a new organization dedicated to this segment, the company has lacked a consistent sales process and approach across all segments of their business. They sought help in establishing and rolling out a “Way of Sales” to their global sales organization and a comprehensive sales on-boarding program for new sales and support team hires.

Symmetrics Group Approach

Symmetrics Group is developing a full “Way of Sales” program that includes the development of a core sales process, supporting tools, sales training, and a sales coaching program to be executed through a new Sales Management Cadence.

Specific focus areas and deliverables include:

  • Sales process and sales playbook with segment-specific nuances to support the positioning of fully-customized solutions as well as standard offers for smaller niche segments
  • A High Impact Conversation Guide for the Telesales team that creates consistency pre and post-sale and highlights the importance of accessing the right people and gaining the right information to create and sustain sales momentum
  • Sales leader playbook and coaching guide to structure regular team interactions and productive coaching conversations with sellers, regardless of skill level (e.g. learning, developing, performing)
  • A training and on-boarding vision/roadmap, plus learning journey and specific learning objectives for new sales and support hires
  • Modular training content for webinars and targeted instructor-led training sessions
