How to Leverage Listening to Unlock Unlimited Sales

Buyers consistently say that 78%+ of people selling to them lack the ability to stop talking and just listen to them. Buyers want to be heard and understood so they can buy instead of being sold something. So, why don’t sellers listen well? Because they were never taught how to.

When you unlock the power of deep listening, you will see how buyers are telling you exactly what to offer to them and how to offer it. They literally build the target for you to hit. The deeper the listening you do, the higher the rate your offers will get accepted,

Bryan’s approach to listening empowers audiences to see what’s possible for them and how they can create more value for clients by applying the principles.

Your Audience Will Learn:

Todd Weeks, Certified EOS Implementer

Before I started working with Bryan, sales was a chore. It was a hassle, it was hard. And frankly, I didn't close all that many deals. Now, sales is an enjoyable process, something which is pleasant for myself, pleasant for my prospects, and actually closes the deals. With Bryan's help, I got up to a close rate of about 70% to 80% of my deals, using the processes he has taught me.
