During the liberalization of the energy market a municipal energy supplier revamped the structures and working style of the sales organization in order to enhance significantly the customer orientation.
horsthaller consulting designed an interactive training program to instruct participants in customer oriented behavior and to equip them with tools to promote customer orientation. Five day-long workshops (one every four weeks) dealt with concrete questions and issues rooted in the everyday world of sales. Participants reflected on behaviors and learned to apply the tools. Before the training program was even completed, the participants had made obvious progress in customer situations in the work environment.
