Success Plan training starts next Monday

Published 4 months ago • 1 min read

Our 2-week virtual Success Plan training and certificate program starts next Monday, March 4, 2024.

This program for CSMs is all about working with customers in the "ongoing" phase of the lifecycle; you know, after Onboarding and Adoption but before Renewal

This is the lifecycle phase where momentum is generally lost, engagement suffers, and customers often operate without direction.

This can lead to churn, but more often leads to contraction at renewal (revenue churn) and definitely keeps expansion from happening.

This program fixes all of that by teaching you:

  • Continuous Goal Alignment
  • Proper use of Progress Milestones
  • Joint Accountability
  • Objection Handling

And so much more!

Our Impact Academy programs are a combination of on-demand and live sessions via Zoom. Even though this is a "virtual" program, space is limited due to the interactive nature of our live sessions.

Here are a few ideas for you to make your CSMs feel less...

We focus on the differences between Proactive and Reactive Retention, how to move from the latter to the former through better prioritization, orchestration, and directing limited resources to higher-percentage activities. This program is practical in every sense of the word. Our Impact Academy programs are a...

“My CSMs are too busy to do Advocacy, Lincoln.” “So pile even more onto my overworked CSMs? Umm, No.” I’ve heard the same for Expansion, Renewal, etc. Weird how their CSMs are too busy to do things like Advocacy or Expansion but not too busy to: Do the work for the customer Work escalated support tickets Train individual users Answer the same questions over and over Have meetings when they’re not necessary Have super-inefficient meetings And so much more nonsense Saying their CSMs are "too...
