Past participants in these programs have found their business have grown exponentially. With its unique accountability and statistical tracking system, TKG guarantees its programs will produce specific measurable results when correctly applying the skills and techniques taught. At the conclusion, as master communicators, participants will find client relationships are strengthened and prospects are calling, asking to do business with them!

ABOUT TKG TRAINING

TKG Training includes a deliberate sequence of steps that build on the previous skills taught, and each equally necessary to the reach the top of the performance ladder. Prominent elements of its training programs, whether four-weeks, six weeks or 90-days, include these three essential ingredients:

•    Ensuring their virtual message is professionally delivered.
•    Delivering a message that is highly interactive and encourages feedback.

4.    The Virtual Sales Process – Advisors know and are experienced with the nuts and bolts of selling, but few realize there is a significant difference in face-to-face and virtual selling. In this session, they’ll learn techniques that supersede “ordinary” sales techniques to become masters of virtual selling.
5.    Communication/Buying Styles – Advisors learn how to read and adjust their approach to each client’s individual communication and buying style. By learning and applying the skills taught, they will become experts in the art and science of non-verbal communication.
6.    Building, Delivering and Closing the Presentation – Delivering an effective presentation is a talent few are born with, and understanding the dynamics required for a virtual event are even more challenging. Yet anyone can become proficient in this area once they learn the correct techniques – the cadence, amount of information and how to share it, how to elicit feedback, and most important, how to expertly deliver the close. At this hands-on session, advisors will learn how to successfully deliver a virtual message that is easily digested by their audience.

WEEK 9. Family, Friends and Social Acquaintances
