Scott Van Hoven

RJG, Inc.

Sales Coaches’ Corner has given our company a systematic way for qualifying customers and ensuring their success across all aspects of our company. By training not only our sales staff, but also marketing and customer support we are all now on the same sheet of music. From our advertising to customer meetings our methods are the same. It is amazing the turnaround in our teams by having everyone pulling in the same direction. Dave’s energy and passion has made the message stick with our staff and we are seeing the rewards of that every day

Paul Chambers

CEO, Element5 Digital

If you're looking for someone to push a few pieces of paper in front of you, show you a fancy Powerpoint, and expect you to improve your sales potential, Sales Coaches' Corner is NOT the company for you. But, if you want to change the way you approach your clients, take control of the sales process, and improve the quality of business you bring in, Dave Tear and the Sales Coaches' Corner is the right choice.

Patricia Shall

Owner, Creative Benefits & Insurance Solutions

We chose SCC for many reasons. SCC was flexible and understanding of our needs. Other companies seemed to struggle in that area. SCC successfullly taught the CBIS Team very valuable sales techniques that we are utilizing to be more productive. These tools will be used for a lifetime and will increase each person's success in communicating, understanding and in making sales. Dave Tear made the training classes interesting and fun, so our Team was anxious for the next session.

Greg Hogsett

The Mardigian Agency Farm Bureau Insurance

A coach is someone who sees where you are and where you want to be, and helps you navigate the best way to get there. I appreciate how Dave Tear motivates me, pushes me, drags me kicking and screaming to get me to where I want to be in my sales career. I am absolutely thrilled with his creative tips and advice, and his “realness” in his coaching. I encourage anyone who is stuck, or just want to improve their sales career to give Dave a call.

Rich Ebersole

President, Outdoor Promotions

Outdoor Promotions has used Sales Coaches' Corner several times over the last few years. Most of our sales team are experienced and very knowledgeable about our industry so we needed someone that would give them a new approach to the sales process and someone who could make them take a step back and look at things from a different perspective. Dave Tear was the perfect solution. His high energy, passion and enthusiasm are without fail the best in the business. He is easy to work with and had no problem grasping the nuances of our industry and adapting his training to fit our needs. He helped us change our entire approach to the sales process and taught us how and when to “move on” from a prospect instead of wasting valuable time chasing them. And his follow-up and ongoing interaction with our salespeople helps us to continue to use what we learned instead of slipping back into old habits. I highly recommend Sales Coaches' Corner and Dave Tear.

Why Do They String Us Along?

You’d have to search pretty hard to find anyone that has seen the movie Caddyshack that didn’t love it. It’s great. Rodney Dangerfield, Chevy Chase, Ted Knight. Who can forget Judge Smails putting pressure on Danny to putt on the final hole? “Well, we’re waiting!” Pure Smails. This is going to hurt. Someone asked a …

5 Ways to Ask the Budget Question in Sales

If you have been in sales for longer than a week you have been told, ”You have to uncover their budget.” Your director or manager has asked, “How much money are they willing to spend?” “What’s the budget?” “What’s their target price?” “How much money do they have?” Been there? Of course you have. Question …

12 Things Superstar Salespeople Don’t Do

Salespeople (the remarkably successful ones) build mental toughness (mental muscles) the same way they build physical muscles – exercise. Good habits (like cardio & lifting weights) will help you grow stronger. But, giving up the bad habits (eating too much, sitting on the couch, etc.) is key if you really want to make progress.
