As a therapist, Alan enabled his clients to overcome their biggest challenges in life. As a sales coach, Alan empowers salespeople to overcome their biggest sales challenges. His message is straightforward; salespeople don’t fail because they don’t know what action to take–they fail because they don’t take that action. If that’s the problem, what’s the solution? It’s to empower salespeople to empower themselves by coaching themselves. Coaches unlock performance potential. By all means, let’s coach our salespeople. And along the way, let’s empower them to be their own coach. Why? Because a salesperson who can coach themselves past their doubts, fears and challenges, is the salesperson who takes action and that’s how you dramatically increase your sales.
