    Steve Kraner
    Sales Team Trainer, Software Sales Gurus

    Steve Kraner and his clients advance our understanding of the optimum approach to selling through testing. The data proves that top performing salespeople conduct conversations differently from their peers. If you have tried programs like Challenger and SPIN, you may have found the initial enthusiasm fades. As a result, you try to sustain new skills with new coaching technology, but find your team needs more specific guidance on HOW to do what the creators of new call coaching tools, like Gong.IO, tell them to do. If so, the Software Sales Gurus sales mastery process will produce the results you want.
