RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif., May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ValueSelling Associates, Inc. announced it has been included on Selling Power’s 2018 list of the Top 20 Sales Training Companies that excel in helping sales leaders improve the performance of their sales teams. For seven consecutive years, Selling Power has consistently recognized ValueSelling Associates—with its easy-to-implement ValueSelling Framework® sales methodology—as a sales training company that guides sales leaders to improve the performance of their sales teams.

The main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s list were:

-- Depth and breadth of training offered -- Innovative offerings (specific training courses or methodology) or delivery methods -- Contributions to the sales-training market -- Strength of client satisfaction

According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is a key area of competitive differentiation for B2B sales teams. “To compete today, B2B sales leaders must invest in the right kind of sales training for their teams,” says Gschwandtner “Most salespeople are weakest in the area of selling skills, and improvements can make a huge difference in revenue achievement. We are proud to announce this list of sales training companies that can help sales leaders sort through their options and select the best partner to help them improve.”

“At ValueSelling Associates we passionately share a sales methodology and tools that build high-performing sales teams. The ValueSelling Framework works. Our clients quickly adopt the methodology and see immediate improvements,” said Julie Thomas, President and CEO of ValueSelling Associates. “We are honored to be part of Selling Power’s Top 20 Sales Training Companies list. This recognition validates the caliber of our associates, who bring the ValueSelling Framework to life with our clients and drive results.”
