Sales Negotiation Training & Consulting

How to effectively negotiate win-win agreements.

“LSA Global’s sales negotiation training and consulting provided sales negotiation tools and practices that have significantly enhanced our negotiations process. Their team understood our business, its challenges and framed the learning in a way that we understood. I am very happy with the value we have received, and would highly recommend LSA to others looking to improve their sales negotiations results.”

Jeff Bizzack | President | ServiceSource

“What I liked best was the 100% focus on live sales negotiation opportunities. We put over 100 negotiations through the process and had immediate impact. Furthermore, using the blended approach of technology and live consulting, we achieved these results with our sales team only being out of the field one day.”

Monte Roy | Senior Vice President of Sales | Information Builder

“I have learned to not just roll over and cave in to demands. To listen to what our clients have to say and identify what they really need vs. what they say they need, and negotiate an appropriate value.”

Business Development Manager | Western Region | Technology

“We originally engaged with LSA Global to help our subcontract administrators and buyers develop better negotiations skills. As manufacturers of satellites, we have many sole source companies to procure the required parts. Our teams must be able to interact effectively with international companies. This environment uniquely challenges our team in their ability to create equitable contracts, while preserving and strengthening our supplier relationships. LSA Global not only provided our team with the skills to negotiate effectively and consistently, but we further expanded our relationship to include consulting around our negotiations’ process, measurement of our negotiations, and one-on-one coaching for our team members. We are very pleased with the result of our partnership with LSA Global.”

  • Are you giving price concessions in order to win business?
  • Would you like to increase margins and revenue?
  • Is it important to increase win-rates in competitive situations?
  • Are your sales cycles too long?
  • Do you have unbalanced relationships with your customers?

Unless you can answer “yes” to all the questions above, our Sales Negotiation Training is for you.

Description:
Sales Negotiation Training provides the principles and techniques required for building long-term and mutually beneficial client relationships while simultaneously meeting aggressive sales revenue and margin targets. This proven Sales Negotiation Training helps you to prepare for, understand, and conduct sales negotiations across a range of different and difficult situations while preserving credibility, providing the best solutions, and protecting margins.

Sales Negotiation Training enables those professionals who meet with clients face-to-face to consider sales negotiating–not as a stumbling block–but as a good opening for success. During the intensive two-day sales negotiation workshop each participant views a current sales negotiation opportunity from the perspective of the customer’s decision process and to practice both procedural and contractual negotiations. The interactive design includes negotiation skill application, group exercises, role plays, video-based instruction, modeling, negotiation planning, and negotiation coaching.

Outcomes and Benefits:
Sales teams that have learned how to effectively implement the Sales Negotiation Training typically achieve:

  • Less need to discount the price in order to win deals
  • Improved revenue and margins
  • Increased wins over the competition
  • Reduced sales cycles
  • Strengthened customer relationships based not on price, but on value
  • Greater credibility and status during the decision-making process

Target Audience:
This proven sales negotiation program is specifically designed for sales, support and service professionals, managers and executives for whom long-term success is dependent on long-term relationships.

Online Options:
We offer targeted elearning negotiation services online to be used in conjunction with our other sales negotiation products and services at various phases.

  • Web Based ROI
    This online tool provides web-based management of your entire sales negotiation initiative from communicating your negotiation strategy, to managing the ongoing implementation of the negotiations process, measuring outcomes and – for the first time ever – providing your firm with a database of key negotiating variables. This tool automates negotiation knowledge management and accelerates organizational adoption of Strategic Negotiation best practices.
  • Web Based Training
    This online negotiations course provides the instructor-led Strategic Negotiation content in a module-based web offering. It allows individuals to work through the online negotiations workshop at their own pace, as well as provides testing on the concepts and process. This allows those unable to attend a negotiation workshop in person to transition from their intuitive negotiation method to blueprinting a negotiation using the Strategic Negotiation Process.
  • Web Based Reinforcement
    This online negotiations course provides reinforcement of the Strategic Negotiation Process for blueprinting a negotiation for individuals who have already attended an instructor-led negotiations workshop or completed the full online negotiations version. Individuals can work through the negotiation modules at their convenience and then complete their work with a final exam.

We pride ourselves on measuring and quantifying the impact of training and development. In addition to our standard sales negotiation training and coaching satisfaction metrics, LSA offers additional (pre-workshop) training assessment and (post-workshop) training measurement options in support of our core belief in the transfer of training and the required impact on the business through increased revenue, decreased costs and/or increased productivity.

Originally, we launched a RFP to identify and partner with a sales training provider to improve the skills of the sales teams in the distributor network. However, throughout the process, LSA Global challenged our thought processes and engaged with us by suggesting that we focus on the systemic factors that create a high performance environment first, before we focused on the more symptomatic needs of sales skills training. LSA Global has identified the two strategic moves that will enable us to create a high performance environment and we continue to seek their guidance on implementing those moves, as well as other key needs.

We evaluated 6 well known sales development partners in the market. Late in the process we discovered an organization called LSA Global. We ended up selecting LSA global because of their unique model (bringing together best-of-breed organizations under 1 umbrella to deliver the best solution to meet a customer’s needs). Additionally, LSA had the strongest assessment, implementation, measurement, coaching, and global capabilities combined with an excellent program focused on true executive selling. We’ve had such strong feedback that the program has developed a buzz and there are requests to roll it out within the Marketing, Product Management, and Executive teams.

LSA is a great and high quality training and consulting resource. In less than a week turnaround time, they were able to design and deliver a ‘best in class’ inside sales solution to meet my team’s unique needs. They met my high expectations and were very responsive to my specific objectives.

The sales negotiations training program was awesome. The facilitator was excellent. We are immediately able to see the relevance and apply it to specific needs at Blackhawk. The preparation and energy was very apparent. The facilitator did a great job keeping the class engaged for the entire day and focused on what mattered most to our success. I am very pleased with the results and like the very relevant and applicable sales negotiations tools. Great job.

We wanted our Channel Managers to get strategies and tools that would increase partner revenue and strengthen partner relationships.

We recently hired LSA Global to help take our sales team to the next level. Specifically we focused on targeting the ideal client, differentiating our solutions, getting more qualified leads, and closing a higher percentage of our pipeline through a proven referral selling methodology.

So far, the results from the business sales training have been great. We were pleasantly surprised with the results-oriented approach and thoughtful follow-through plan to ensure that the new sales practices “stick.” We look forward to a long-term relationship, and I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to increase the effectiveness of their sales force.

One of the most dynamic sales training programs I have had the pleasure of being involved in. Nothing I have experienced comes close to them. The sales principles are unique to contact centers and can be applied effectively in sales and customer service-oriented operations.

We engaged with LSA Global to help our team identify opportunities to accelerate our commitment to sales excellence as “The Service Revenue Performance Company” in our market place. The facilitator’s shared passion for our goals created a foundation for sales skill adoption, as did LSA’s keen understanding of our unique business environment. This insight allowed LSA to deliver customized business sales training workshops which were adapted to reflect our specific business dynamics and provided our employees with the models and tools to leverage on every call with customers.

We turned to LSA Global to help us take our executive selling and solution selling skills to the next level, which will ultimately help our customers succeed. Their ability to formally assess our situation, identify key sales skill gaps, develop a plan to measure the results, and fully implement a key sales initiative – has been outstanding. LSA delivers the full solution; not just sales training and I would recommend them to any organization looking to transform its sales force the “right way” to sell higher and wider.

We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding and measurement process. The process was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership. The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training and reinforcement made all the difference.  The pilot program in EMEA was a big success and the solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires. We are continuing to work with LSA Global to scale the program in other GEOs and expand to cover more roles at VMware.  I would recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally across VMware as we continue to scale.

LSA custom designed and delivered the best sales training session that I have ever attended. They focused on our industry, our customers, and our competitors. The materials and facilitators were world class. They were passionate about helping our global sales force understand the fundamentals necessary to be successful and not leave money on the table. I recommend them to any sales force looking to drive profitable revenue and beat the competition.
