  6. The final day was a total skills test of what they had learned through the training delivered in the form of a “sales game”. Much like a murder mystery we trained a team of “role players” to acts as different decision makers they regularly sold to. Positioned about the training facility in offices the training program participants would call on each with a specific set of objectives that tested their comprehension of the strategies, tactics and skills they had been taught. Each team, as well as the individuals, were scored on how well they did in each challenge room and were provided, along with their managers, a score sheet identifying areas of strength as well as opportunities for growth. We videoed every call and sent out copies to the participants, and their managers, for review after the event.
