CQ® Sales: Use Cultural Intelligence to Reach New Markets

The world of selling has changed drastically over the past decade. Not only has social media completely revolutionized the sales process, but globalization has had a dramatic effect on how much organizational and individual cultural values play a role in a seller’s ability to penetrate a new company, uncover new sales opportunities, and close a deal. In many instances, the process has become far more complex, thereby contributing to significantly longer sales cycles, smaller deal sizes and decreased revenue.

CQ® Sales: Use Cultural Intelligence to Reach New Markets is an interactive workshop that teaches sales professionals how to leverage the cultural values of an organization, team, or decision maker to open more sales opportunities, shorten sale cycles, and close more deals.
