“In sales, the ultimate battle is not between the salesperson and his prospect, but between the salesperson and himself, between his self-doubt and his self-confidence. This is a battle we, as salespeople, are meant to win.”
— Carl Harvey
As a salesperson:
Are you paralyzed by the thought of calling at the top?
Do you find it difficult to consistently and effectively ask for the order?
Do you find it impossible to pick up the phone to make a cold call?
Do you find yourself proposing but not closing your opportunities?
As a sales manager:
Do you find yourself dealing with high turnover?
Are your salespeople quoting the business, but not closing it?
Do you find that the sales training you have provided doesn't seem to stick?
Are you frustrated by the fact that not enough of your people can do the selling fundamentals of cold calling, qualifying, presenting and closing?
All these questions share one common answer:
What stops most sales people is not a lack of product knowledge or selling skills, but a gap in their self-esteem: they find it difficult to do what they already know.
Now there's a way to bridge this gap with a powerful, path-breaking new course from Target Intellect. Based on the just-published book by Carl Harvey, What's Stopping You?, the course is the first of its kind to integrate the science of psychology and the art of selling to provide you with powerful, proven techniques and practices to develop the selling skills and psychological competencies to achieve selling success.
- Option 1: 1-2 hour presentation
- Option 2: Half-day seminar
- Option 3: Full-day seminar
- Option 4: Nine-week training course
- Option 5: Personal coaching

His powerful and practical techniques will help our already successful sales team move up to another level.”

“After our coaching session, I had six scheduled sales presentations over the next three day. I practiced the script you laid out for me on my way to these appointments, and used them during the presentations. It actually worked! Out of those six, four turned into immediate sales; 1 was able to schedule a return appointment for the fifth, and the last was closed within 24 hours. I now know I can overcome my hardest obstacles and my unsubstantiated fears. It was amazing! All my customers could do was sign. Carl, thank you!”
