SALES TO THE POWER OF STORY COACH
As a sales professional who sells complex, high-stakes products and services, you know all to-well the criticality of building rapport and trust quickly, handling objections with aplomb, demonstrating value through differentiation, and so forth. And you know how powerful stories can be to help you accelerate your sales success. That’s why I created the Storytelling for Sales Coach service or as I like to call it, Sales STORY ™ — Sales to the Power of Story Coach.
I am Ira Koretsky (bio), CEO of The Chief Storyteller®. As your Sales to the Power of Story coach, I will help you better persuade, entertain, educate, and inspire at the right times to the right audiences, to help you close more deals, faster, using the power of storytelling.
YOUR SALES TO THE POWER OF STORY COACH, IRA KORETSKY
I have been in the world of storytelling since I was in high school debate. Three years after starting forensics (that’s what it was called back then), I was a New York State debate champion finalist. There were just 26 of us from the entire state. A life-long foundational lesson came from our debate coach and our storytelling coach, Mr. Height. He stressed… and made us appreciate… the power of effective stories and appreciate the power of effective delivery. They went hand-in-hand.
Lessons from Mr. Height, along with countless others over my career, along with plenty of bumps and bruises earned on my own, have made me a much better sales storyteller and a much better sales communicator. And for you, a better Sales to the Power of Story coach.
By empowering you with the storytelling skills and strategies I have perfected over the last 25 years, I will help you be more successful, personally and professionally. My specialties are helping sales teams and sales professionals like you simplify the complex and communicate effectively when the stakes are high. I regularly work with executives, leaders, and rising stars (click here for training options) in fast-growing firms to Fortune 100 companies.
For every situation, I will advise and equip you with the Sales to the Power of Story skills and tools to be successful, in your own authentic way. As your Sales to the Power of Story coach, I provide BOTH advice (strategy) and hands-on (tactics) help in several skill- and confidence-building categories (see table below).
