Many of us define success as reaching the intended goal or outcome. My experience as a leading sales coach has taught me that it is the conversations we have along the way that determine the outcome. Meaningful and intentional conversations create epic results, and that's that.
I have had the good fortune to work with some of the industries leading professionals. From independent designers to CEOs of major firms, my clients continue to challenge and inspire me with their tenacity for success. Here is what they have to say...
Tylor Devereaux Interior Design
Within 20 minutes of any seminar, I typically lose interest and I have an overwhelming feeling of "get me out of here!" However, when I attended Jody Seivert's Interior Design Boot Camp, I was amazed that I could not stop listening to her. By the end of the three hours, I was hooked on her no nonsense, no excuse approach to the design business. Since then, I have worked with Jody one on one and it has been awesome. She understands the design mind and has taught me invaluable concepts, techniques and brought out my confidence like I never imagined. I have been in the design field for over 18 years, and Jody has has helped me take my business to the next level and beyond. Plus, I am having a great time in the process!
I can't thank Jody enough for all the coaching help she provided for our company. Not only was I impressed, but even our designers made a point of commenting on her knowledge and thoroughness. We hired another person to do a personal seminar on "Referral Training" for our staff, and when I asked one of our designers what they thought of the presentation they says, "Well nobody stacks up very well if you compare them to Jody!"
For me personally what I loved about with her was her ability to help us focus on issues, yet also make us think long term, and consider options we would never have imagined. Her suggestions have helped us enormously in streamlining our processing of information and paperwork, along with showroom etiquette and procedures.
I know when the economy improves we will be work with her again to help us take advantage of the new opportunities that will inevitably be available in our industry, and help us address any new challenges.
Our store has utilized Jody's training program on numerous occasions. Each and every time we've had revitalized staff, inspired ideas and record breaking months of sales. The training has been absolutely invaluable to our team especially because of the training's relevance to the furniture industry. I would highly recommend the training on both the management and sales end to any store looking to increase sales, improve customer relations and selling efficiencies and enhance management accountability.
I have had the pleasure of partnering with Jody Seivert for the past 5 years. During that time she has played an integral role in helping me to develop focused, sales-driven teams; rather than a collection of order-takers. She has an unmatchable blend of interior design experience, design center sales experience, relationship/personal development, and structured sales training. So unlike other sales development trainers, she "gets" our industry and tailors her teachings appropriately. She is truly one-of-a-kind and her teachings absolutely, unequivocally produce results. (But only if you execute what she teaches!!)
I started with her at one company where we fully implemented her teachings and as a result, doubled our business in the first year. We developed a group of associates who believed in Jody, we had leadership that executed what she taught, and we blossomed.
Since joining Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman, I have used Jody extensively to train my team, and she the selling teams at my rep showrooms around the country. Once again, we doubled our business under her guidance due to bother her technical teachings and her unbridled enthusiasm.
And the the wonderful part about Jody is that she truly believes and acts as though she is part of your team. She is always there to guide and mentor my team and me. I am honored to have her as a mentor now consider her a dear friend. She has changed the way that I approach my business and helped me to become more successful in my career.
House Call that Close was a one day power shot of how to improve house calls and home plans in an efficient and effective manner. Great for those who are newer to house call selling, but also excellent for those with experience in house call selling. Discovering that time is money and designers can improve their in-store, in-home and presentations skills to shorten the process all the while making their customers satisfied with their new project/room for their home. Productive designers equals profitable stores!
