C7G’s approach was to implement the Catalyst 7 System, teaching them they could use our Relationship Development materials to approach various markets with pointed product messages and uses. Most importantly however, was teaching how to leverage their technical knowledge and management skills with this system in order to get to that next level.
We implemented a 2 day workshop with their internal and external sales people followed up with one on one meetings both in person and the phone. We also were invited to sales meetings to refresh and motivate.
The Catalyst 7 system re-framed their approach from transactional to relational by teaching their sales team how to understand their clients’ business and personal agendas and how what they have to offer could help them reach those objectives.
The end results were impressive. Sales increased significantly, the sales force was motivated and focused and their approach was not dependent on the markets, competitors product offerings or pricing.
This approach not only resulted in increased sales but also developed a well of good will. Clients are less likely to leave over mistakes. Clients now look at the value of the whole relationship and don’t jump ship over minor pricing differences. Clients know they are valued and valued that immensely.
The field force now has a way to approach clients and prospects consistently and professionally. They do not have to worry about short term pricing or product issues. They are able to approach their markets with confidence that they can help their customers in any situation. This has resulted in more productivity, less complaining and a happy motivated group of individuals.

Case Study: Honeywell Process Solutions
Sales and Service teams were not being allowed in to high-level business planning and conversations of their clients, being viewed as product peddlers.
With accelerated technological advances came globalization and the accelerated commoditization of products and services, increasing prices and shrinking profit margins. They were looking for a new way to differentiate themselves.
Engaged in Relationship Development and Strategic Relationship Account Planning
Executive exposure increased 40% in first year.
