"My managers now conduct more effective account reviews with their reps and spend more time providing strategic advice and direction. We publish comprehensive STC statistics on dashboards allowing us to tie booking success to each rep's use of STC. We now see better qualification, shorter sales cycles and increasing average deal size since implementing STC and MTC."

"Selling Through Curiosity™ changed how our teams do businesses. Managing Through Curiosity™ helped my managers become true leaders and coaches. "I never would have thought that developing my people could be so easy."
"I have taken lots of sales training. I have never seen such a simple yet methodical correlation between asking the right questions and using that data to customize my presentations. We used Barry's approach with every presentation and my sales engineers used it on every demo. Our win rate went through the ceiling! Because of Barry, when I was with Ariba, I became the #1 sales rep worldwide and then the #1 manager worldwide. I could not have done it without him!"

"With Barry’s approach and tools, I became comfortable and confident making the calls that I need to. I LOVE my 'Objection Handling Flip Chart' from class. It singlehandedly helped me quadruple the amount of appointments that I set. With Barry's approach I was able to quickly become the #1 worldwide rep, selling 1/3 of our entire company's annual revenue with 15 people in sales."
