A piercing insight of a major dilemma among the small business sector led Rod LeGrande to create a system to help businesses with a small sales force (less than 6 salespeople) to build a fast growing business, by transforming their salespeople into “selling machines”. Known for his innovation in the franchise world, Rod LeGrande founded Excellence Quest in 1983, providing outsourced Sales Managers to small businesses that generally don't have the budget to hire a full time Sales Manager. By providing the same luxuries, training and incentives, at an affordable investment, that only the large corporations were able to enjoy, small businesses have found an affordable way to keep their salespeople motivated, monitored and trained. Rod has taught his unique 12-month sales training program, involving monthly four-hour seminars with accompanying workbooks, continued weekly training booklets, audios, and software, (a $3500 package) exclusively to his local clients in several states.
By combining the salespeople from his clients together each month at his seminars (approximately 10-20 per Sales Coach) Rod and his Sales Coaches provide $1,000 in cash awards as monthly contests to the salespeople that they train. Then to reward the salespeople for their performance at the end of each year he takes them and their spouses on a luxury vacation to places like Tahiti , the Caribbean , and other exotic locations, which is usually valued at $5,000 or more.
Most businesses with a small sales force cannot afford a full time Sales Manager nor do they have the budget for the incentive trips or monthly awards. Rod's company, Excellence Quest makes it convenient to make one investment for as little as $1400 to hire a professional Sales Coach as their Sales Manager. Since that investment covers the Sales Manager's salary as well as the monthly awards, annual incentive trip and the training program including books, workbooks, audios, seminars and software, it makes the investment very affordable.
Author of the book “Auto-Pilot Salesperson”, speaker and creator of the highly acclaimed “Auto-Pilot Salesperson” system, Rod LeGrande has also been training, inspiring and motivating salespeople for over two decades on how to use his unique system to maintain self-motivation and self-discipline that ultimately helps them launch themselves into becoming “selling machines”.
Continued popularity of his “Auto-Pilot Salesperson” system and software has led Rod to release his trade secrets to audiences worldwide in 2005. A dynamic and entertaining speaker, Rod moves his students to demand a better life for themselves as they learn his system to develop self-motivation and self-discipline in order to develop consistency in increased sales.
His warmth, humor and genuineness is magnetic. But more important, Rod LeGrande exemplifies balanced success in all areas of life.
