Case Study: Accenture (Product)
The Brief: As partners with Accenture, we work with them in many capacities. In this case, in September 2017, Accenture Products asked us to work with their team of salespeople and sales directors to assess and improve their storytelling skills and the way they sell their company to potential clients. In this case we had limited time, but big, important goals.
The Execution: We created and executed a crash course in storytelling and communication. We began by having a few participants make presentations we could critique for style and content. We then worked on elements of a good story and of good storytelling, including use of emotion, crisp, clear word choice and body language. Finally we had them record each other telling their customer story to each other so they could see for themselves how they communicated to the customer and where they need to improve.
The Response: Several of the team approached us to ask for sessions to continue working on their ability to sell and please customers. And we are working on a program with Accenture for the sales managers now that we have worked with the front line staff.
