- Uncover needs and motivations by asking questions
- Align products and service to meet member needs
- Gain proper and effective commitments
Day Two: Advanced Sales Skills
On day two, attendees will learn what it takes to sell the full product line and craft primary financial relationships with their members. Attendees will also discover how to use foundational sales principles and how to apply them to advanced sales opportunities.
- Manage sales objections
- Effective member interviews
- Cross-selling core products and services
- Up-selling ancillary products and services
- Loan recapture
Day Three: Transformational Leadership
The final day of the Credit Union Sales Intensive is designed with the sales leader or coach in mind. Leaders will learn how to identify employee coaching needs, develop an individual development plan to address them, and how to coach using one of three coaching models. Additionally, leaders will learn about the three coaching opportunities and how they should be used to continuously develop their teams. Those three coaching opportunities are:
The content will include products and services that credit unions offer, scenarios, and examples that employees can relate to and information to assist credit union employees with targeting sales opportunities.
Daily Schedule, Tuesday – Thursday
- Morning Session: 11:30 – 1:30
- Lunch: 1:30 – 2:00
- Afternoon Session: 2:00 – 4:00
(There will be a 7-minute break on each hour.)
Assuming the credit union sends three employees for a total investment of $1,947, the credit union only needs to improve sales through leadership and training in one of these categories to see an ROI:
- 11 additional checking accounts
- $146,250 more in deposits
- $73,125 more in recaptured loans
- 14 additional assurance products
- 10 additional active credit cards
It’s expected each attendee will lead their team to achieving each of these levels of sales TWICE in the first year, returning 30x the investment.
This event is conducted virtually on Zoom. To make this workshop as effective as possible in a
