Why doesn't sales training work?

Why is it that most people who attend sales training courses and seminars show very little sustained improvement?  Why doesn't modern sales training consistently produce successful salespeople?

Why is it that most sales training courses and seminars contain large doses of motivational psychology?  Why is it that the sales profession is the largest user of motivational training?  Is it coincidental that the next largest user is the armed forces?  What is it that the armed forces and salespeople have in common that requires them to be the largest users of motivational training?  How many carpenters, mechanics, CPA's, claims adjusters or veterinarians need to attend motivational seminars in order to do their jobs?

How many professions come with a built-in fear of rejection and a reluctance to do the job?  Why do approximately eighty percent of the people who enter the selling profession leave within the first few years?  Why do so many who remain feel trapped or burned out in their jobs?

Is this all endemic to selling or is there something fundamentally wrong with the way we sell that causes these problems?  Could it be that "Selling as the Art of Persuasion" is a concept whose time has come and gone?  Could it be that it's no longer profitable to persuade and convince prospects to buy what they don't already want?

High Probability Selling trains salespeople how to discover whether there is a mutually acceptable basis for doing business - without using manipulative techniques.  High Probability Selling is not an improvement on, or a variation of, any sales technique you know.  It's a new paradigm that requires salespeople to sell with integrity in order to achieve outstanding results.

High Probability Selling takes salespeople off their knees and puts them back on their feet, with dignity, where they belong.

The above text was taken from the Introduction to the book "High Probability Selling" by Jacques Werth and Nicholas Rubin.
