How do you work with GEAB new starters?

I am a Coach and Mentor. I’m approachable and thrive on seeing people putting learning into practice. No two people are the same, and that’s what makes this job so satisfying.

Why is coaching so helpful to new starters at GEAB?

Coaching helps new starters to understand they aren’t alone. We want them to do well and offer support every step of the way on their journey. Coaching can really help to realign, readjust, and give a flip-sided outlook to their mindset, which reaffirms their goals.

What kind of background do GEAB Coaches share?

I have 12 years’ Sales experience, and the team offers a huge wealth of experience, including an NLP practitioner who works on mindset.

What makes GEAB Coaching unique?

GEAB coaching is tailored to individual needs, and all about unlocking Sales potential. We are friendly, want our staff to do well, and will back them all the way. There’s regular, scheduled coaching sessions with an open-door policy.

What can new starters expect to take with them as they start work?

The ability to maximise every lead and opportunity, utilising everything that makes them shine as a Salesperson. Afterall, no one buys the company, they buy a person. Relationships make sales.
