Relationship Intelligence ® Advanced Certification is a 12-week program for entrepreneurs and individuals interested in perfecting their sales strategies. At the core of the Relationship Intelligence Advanced Certification Program is the concept of Relationship Selling.
Relationship Selling is about practicing sales as an act of friendship, not as a process of negotiation. It is an intricate balance between relationship building and selling. It is important to make the sale (to generate revenue), but it is equally important to build and maintain business relationships with your customers (to generate future revenue and customer loyalty).
Earners of this Advanced Certification will discover the true purpose of selling and improve your sales relationship. During this Program, they will also get access to module videos, certified curriculum, assessment exercises, social communities, text, chat, checklists, alerts, reminders, and live sessions with global experts.

The three primary elements in negotiation are: power, information, and time. Those who have all of these components place themselves on a better footing to have successful negotiations.
The Acorn principle is based on the idea that everyone has a seed within them that represents the nature of who they are.
Having lots of people collaborate is often referred to as open planning. Though this may be a military term, this has relevant application to the sales world.
Everything starts with how we think, and when we get the thinking right, we will get the selling right. Your attitude is very important.
