BBC Friday 15 March 2019 – “The Social Styles Matrix” w/ Roslyn Webber

Join us this cozy BBC Friday MORNING for an exciting discussion on “How To Win Customers And Influence Co-Workers” — with Remarkable BBC Regular Rosyln Webber, Seabold Consulting and Predictive Group Associate.

The ability to influence others both within an organization and externally is an essential business skill at all levels and roles. Successfully articulating ideas, creating clear and compelling plans, gaining “buy-in” on a proposed strategy, and building consensus require knowing and using a proven set of influence practices. But here’s the catch – people are different. If you can understand and flex with those differences, you can increase your sales effectiveness and, especially for smaller businesses, develop more successful collaborations and long-term partnerships.

How do you quickly identify those differences? How do you tailor your message to appeal to different audiences? Roslyn will share the Social Styles matrix, a widely-used model for organizing buying behavior into four categories. We will practice quickly identifying which “style” our buyer (client, colleague, coworker) prefers and learn what we need to give them to win their business or support.
