Traditionally, this has been accomplished by forcing these individuals to follow the same process and execute the same tactics leveraged by the higher performers. Most often, this is accomplished by implementing a common sales methodology that reinforces the best practices followed by successful salespeople. Although common process and methodology are critically important, the success of those top performers is equally related to the knowledge they have about how to handle different selling situations – how to position against a particular competitor, how to handle a particular objection, how to communicate their value proposition to a key executive, how to navigate their own company to engage the most effective subject-matter experts, etc. As a result, the average performers must not only do what the top performers do, they must know what the top performers know. At the end of the day, this is the ultimate goal of Sales Enablement.
