Agriculture Sales Training

From small family farms to multinational food producers, agribusinesses of all types and sizes are facing unique challenges. Increasing pressure from global competition ... climate change induced strains on land and crops … rapidly shifting prices … agribusinesses are continually adapting. And since many of the products are, by nature, commodities, success depends not only on new technologies and ways of operating but new ways of selling, too.  This requires a different approach to agriculture sales training.

Do your teams fully understand the value expectations of your customers? Or are they stuck in a purely transactional, order-taking and reactive relationship with them?

Leading agribusiness industry companies we work with stand out for exceptional customer loyalty and growth. They develop sales and service teams that consistently rate high in two areas: developing deeper, trust-based relationships by intentionally listening and responding to customer needs, and being able to communicate the unique value proposition of their products and services vs. competitors. 

One of the hallmarks of these customer-focused organizations is high employee engagement, which refers to the passion, commitment and discretionary effort your people bring to the job every day. In the agriculture industry, employee engagement is what drives great sales and customer service teams. Deeply engaged employees will bring more of themselves to their work, expend more discretionary effort and simply show up better.

Agriculture Sales Training Experience

We have worked with leaders in agribusiness in the U.S. and Canada for well over 25 years to understand their business and successfully deploy comprehensive agriculture sales training, coaching and customer service training solutions for all levels, from sales leaders to field sales reps and customer service teams.

By building both the skillset and mindset to develop trust, credibility and rapport, your teams will be able to gain a deeper understanding of the unique goals of your customers. As a result, they’ll be able to create more value and increase customer loyalty and sales per customer.

Testimonials

I’ve been impressed with our rep’s engagement in Integrity Selling. On a regular basis, I hear them referencing specific concepts learned in the program. Our younger/newer reps gained a lot but what I have been most impressed with is how most our tenured reps have been very engaged throughout the program.

The weekly follow-ups (after the initial training) were important to drive the correct behaviors. It created an opportunity for participants to learn from others in an environment that was conducive to learning and change.
