“In 2012 when I was presented an opportunity to crossover into medical supply/equipment sales role, I began searching for a sales training course that would help ensure my success in this new role. I reached out to Stepp for his advice and he told me about course he already had designed entitled “2Meeting Close which is part of the Sales Meeting Mastery Course” that could provide critical key foundational elements for sales persons. It included information about prospecting, time management, conducting sales meetings, buyer styles, smart negotiation, as well as many other important items. Because I was committed to succeeding in this new role, I invested money out of my own pocket to begin this coursework immediately on my own time and it didn’t take very long to start seeing results. When I was hired for the role, they told me that no one in the 36-year history of the company had ever made quota in that territory. They also told me to expect it to take me at least 2 – 3 years to begin making the territory profitable.”

Marty Partida, Medical Sales Account Represenative

Stepp has been a friend and a business partner for several years. Initially, Stepp did sales training for our Sales Professionals and Sales Managers at Cox. We achieved positive results and this lead to our further developing work with Sales Professional and Sales Manager profiling using DISC Tool and Devine Inventory Tools. We continue to use the tools and I know that we have saved money by being able to focus on development based upon the individual’s personal responses to questions within the tools. This has helped us put the "right people" in the "right seats" (hunting, farming, account management, consultative selling, major account management, etc.) on "The Sales Bus" We continue to work with Stepp and because we are getting substantially better productivity as a business partner.

Randy Chandler, VP Cox Communications
