Furniture Training Company Introduces Sales Goal Training Module

Furniture World News on

Furniture Training Company announced the introduction of a new online selling skills module, Setting and Achieving Sales Goals, now available on the Furniture Training Company’s subscription web site. This module teaches goal setting based on the idea “desire is the turning point of all achievement,” championed by Napolean Hill in his landmark motivational book, “Think and Grow Rich!” The goal-setting module guides associates to set high-volumne monthly and annual sales goals based on their own personal financial goals.

Mark Lacy, President of The Furniture Training Company says, “Without clear financial goals, most salespeople don’t commit to doing the ‘right things’ to guarantee sales success. Greeting every customer with enthusiasm, engaging in needs discovery, presenting with passion, and closing every sale with confidence requires a drive that only comes from a burning desire to achieve ones own personal financial needs and wants.”

The newly released goal-setting module is first in a two part series that shows furniture assocciates how to set meaningful financial goals along with the sales performance goals needed to reach them. These modules are part of the continually expanding library of online furniture training resources at www.furnituretrainingcompany.com’s subscription web site. Like the other 200+ training modules and resources available on the web site, these new modules consist of fully narrated interactive audio-visual presentations, performance-changing activities, and graded tests. Storeowners and managers can monitor 24/7 assocciate training progress and test scores.
