Did your coach training or coaching sales training teach you what to do when a prospective client raises a concern about hiring you at the end of a free session? There are different viewpoints on this subject, depending on where you get coaching sales training. Most coach training says not to try to handle (overcome) their concerns. They say that if the client doesn’t immediately jump at the opportunity to hire you, then it’s not a fit. So, is it a waste of time to handle concerns such as, “I don’t have the money” or “I don’t have the time” at the end of a free session? What are you communicating if you choose not to handle their concerns and just walk away?
Coaching Sales Training: Did Your Coach Training Make You Feel Like You’re Being “Pushy” When You Handle the Concerns of the Prospect?
Many new coaches I work with have just completed their coach training. They usually feel that handling concerns at the end of a free session is being “pushy”. Sometimes they feel it is a waste of time or that the prospect will just cancel later anyway. Still others feel like they are communicating that they are desperate for business if they handle concerns. Is that really true? My coaching sales training for you is that if you don’t handle their concerns, you’re wasting your time doing the free session to begin with. What are you really communicating if don’t you handle their concerns about paying you to be their coach?
