Navigate: Selling The Way People Like To Buy

Statistically, if you’re like most salespeople you sell very well to people who are of the same behavioral profile as you. But that also means that you are potentially missing out on as much as 75% of the rest of the population. Because selling is not about treating people the way you want to be treated; it’s about treating people the way they want to be treated. Yet the vast majority of salespeople have never had any formal education or professional psychology training about how to identify, understand, and relate to people who are of opposing behavioral types of themselves. As a result, each day millions of dollars are lost in potential sales that could be easily captured with a few simple changes to the sales process.

In this insightful and highly entertaining session you will discover:

  • What are the 4 distinct psychological buying and selling behavioral types
  • How to identify someone’s buying behavioral style within seconds of meeting them
  • How to modify your natural selling style to sell the way they like to buy
  • Why saying the wrong thing in the first five seconds can permanently eliminate your chance of ever making a sale
  • Which types of advanced closing techniques are most likely to increase the probability of converting someone into a customer
  • The 12 most common mistakes that sales people make that cost them commissions


In the world of psychology, transference is the art of directing positive energy and momentum in one area to other areas of life. The basic principle is that if you’re really good at one thing, you can be good at other things too – if you know how to leverage transference properly.
