  • Thanks for investing this time
    I promise to get you out on time.
    Before I start: Confession—I’m Joe Marr and I am a …..SM…there I said it!

    Another confession; I don’t do sales training. [pause]
    I help people develop their own strategy and skill in use of a system and psychology to gain deeper trust relationships with other people—and the sales just happen. Everybody ok with that?

    Concerned about me trying to make a sale with you today—well you can relax about that. In fact I’ll make all of you a promise. I promise not to sell you anything, if you promise not to try and buy anything. There’s plenty of fear out there, and I’m sure in some of your companies there’s some fear about making sales calls, and mostly because there is a fear about looking like a salesperson, I’ve also come to the conclusion that there is also a lot a fear about even acknowledging that sales is necessary.
  • Accidental sales is the rule- not exception
  • Accidental sales is the rule- not exception
  • Accidental sales is the rule- not exception
  • Our thoughts and behaviors are largely determined by mental programming that we’re hardly aware of. Goal of TA is to help us become aware of these influences that speak to our subconscious, so we can control their influence on us – end sleepwalking and act rationally.

    P = values (taught concept of life)
    A = think (thought concept of life)
    C = feel (felt concept of life)


    Critical parent - Tell someone what to do, they have no options
    Adult - objective, non-emotional, logical

    Nurturing parent – Help someone in pain feel better

    Natural child – spontaneous, impulsive, loving
    Rebellious – angry, fearful, selfish
    Adaptive child – try to earn approval
  • Transaction = stimulus & response
    Complimentary – lines are parallel (adult – adult or CP – adaptive child)
    Crossed – judgmental statement comes from CP, response comes from CP rather than child.

    Transactions occur simultaneously at both explicit and psychological levels.

    The child wants to buy, the adult makes the decision, and the parent gives permission
