Invision Strategies

our company

Invision Strategies is a leader in the client engagement game – helping businesses win with the right strategy, processes and people. From accelerating your sales and service efforts ... to developing client-focused channels ... to delivering high impact training: Our results speak for themselves – and they speak even louder for your organization. We focus on dynamic companies with aggressive growth plans, and help them move fast and furiously towards meeting their goals, helping their clients and developing their people.

our approach

We realize that your culture and team have a huge impact on the outcomes you are striving to deliver. That's why we start at the heart of the matter, where the getting gets done: with your people. When we work to develop your tools or training, define your sales process, or coach your people, we have a dialogue with them to collect their best thinking and new ideas. This helps us not only customize your solutions to your specific needs and vision, but also understand the realities your team faces.

our team

Have you ever experienced challenges in the strategic alignment of your sales, marketing or customer service channels? Or wished you could rollout new products in a more targeted manner? The Invision Strategies team are experts at not only the sales and service culture but the marketing landscape – and can help you with these needs and more. Their team knows how to think on their feet, use their heads and their hearts to deliver what you need whether it's a strategy, tools, training, or a new process.

Sales Structure

defining your sales and service process

Does your sales force and service team follow a consistent path? Do different regions or areas work too independently when it comes to the customer or do they work as a team? Does your highly skilled team have a track to run on that is proven, documented and a common language used throughout your organization? Invison Strategies can create a consistent sales and service process that will help your team source new business, have great conversations, negotiate profitable proposals, follow through, plan and grow your existing customers. Our sales and service process will help your leaders follow through with their team in a way that's motivating, builds your brand and your business – and delivers on-going client engagement.

Smart Strategy

big picture thinking to drive your business

Having a sales process is only half the battle. Your organization also has to understand the big picture and have a passion for it: Where are you going? What should you focus on? What is the end game? A sales and service process is simply words on a page unless it comes backed by a solid sales and marketing strategy that ignites action. Invision Strategies can help you define your target market, prioritize your prospects and create a contact plan that delivers measurable results.

Development Tools

communicating consistency through the chain

Engaging clients and employees can be a complex endeavor. With both audiences you are trying to not only communicate a message, but also educate and create a long-lasting relationship. The tools you use can make all the difference. The team at Invision Strategies will work with you to create a host of tools you can use for a variety of learning styles and needs. From visuals that demonstrate how a new product works...to audio recordings of your organization's key selling messages...from video on the sales process...to an online or in-field tool kit -- Invision can make your message happen in ways your clients and employees remember.

Smart Strategy

putting all the pieces together

Once you know the "what" and the "who" – it's time to get to the "how." Executing a strategy across your entire team (including frontline employees and those who sell your products to your customers) doesn't have to feel overwhelming. Invision Strategies has created and delivered training for Fortune 500 companies and business start-ups in ways that maximize face-to-face time and utilize self-led training. We create the content and the delivery to ensure that your team owns and executes on this new knowledge and skill. From developing in-field training to coaching and expert delivery – we will build your training around you.

Management Playbook

step-by-step guide for planning, coaching and follow through

The culture of your leadership sets the stage for your entire organization. Invision Strategies helps you develop leaders and leadership skills that propel your organization into the future. Using coaching, managing and mentoring expertise, we “take the temperature” of your organization and its leaders and find the unique opportunities that you have to win. We then develop your management playbook -- a step-by-step guide to help your management teams energize their teams. This playbook will lay out the process for onboarding all levels of your sales team, share the tools and metrics needed to be successful, suggest a management and coaching protocol and propose the training needed to maximize your potential.

"Invision Strategies dynamic approach to sales management development training was rewarding – our sales management team was able to step back from the daily fires and in-trench activities filled with emotion and relationships, and to focus on what was really important – what attributes do I want from my team, what do I want to hold them accountable to, how do I communicate performance – the good and the challenging - how do I motivate my team based on the personality and DISC profile of each member, and perhaps most importantly, how do I win 'crucial conversations' that involve emotion, natural conflict and confrontation. Invision Strategies provided our team with the “toolbox” to lead and manage our business to focus on our priorities and win, rather than being consumed by emotion and noise that can be a distraction."

Her executive presence and confidence allows her to continually challenge the status quo within our company, helping everyone work collaboratively towards a singular goal."
Tim Burke

"Invision's advice on how to manage our sales efforts has proved invaluable as we build our business development team, marketing plan and establish our sales management protocols. Recently Invision helped us create and manage a touch plan with our prospects, influencers and customers. The goal was to proactively engage with our market in a meaningful way and increase our exposure – and it's paid off. Our sales last year were up over 30% and our pipeline doubled -- resulting in much better margins."

The end result is specific, tactical, effective and, most importantly, she made it fun for the entire team. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Invision Strategies."

Kim Gottfried

I have always viewed the sales process as challenging and fun… almost like playing a game… It has the ups and downs of Chutes and Ladders, the financial intrigue and negotiation of Monopoly and the discovery process of Clue. The sales process involves implementing a strategy that is unique to each organization but has many common elements within it. I enjoy being able to apply my 25 years of consumer and business sales leadership experience to match these sales elements to each client’s individual sales needs to maximize their results. I also like to coach teams into recognizing that a key difference in the Sales Process Game as opposed to a conventional game is the importance of viewing the prospect as a partner instead of an opponent. Learn what they need most, proactively provide it and in the end we all win.

I am a driver. I enjoy driving growth in organizations by combining the energy and customer focus of a start-up with the market development discipline of a Fortune 500 Company. One of the most difficult tasks of businesses today is to translate idea to execution on innovative initiatives or directives for growth. I enjoy applying my 25 years of consumer products experience to assist companies through this daunting task by aligning talented marketing, sales and service teams around the customer’s journey to fulfillment and testing organizational abilities to deliver at each step along the way. My contagious enthusiasm and positive outlook compel me to build lasting relationships with customers, shareholders, and team members. I invest time in developing a broad perspective of the market, competitive and environmental landscape, and the motivations driving customers. My customers appreciate my practical approach, consistent service, expert advice, as well as the unique perspectives I bring them of the market and their business.

Michael Smilonich

While Michael has an unparalleled love for software and technology, he claims he still doesn't quite qualify as a nerd, although he admits he may be the only one with that view.

His passion for all things technical is obvious when presented with a company's goal or product challenge as he voraciously works at understanding that company's perspective to make sure the end product accurately reflects and enhances the company's vision.

He's a creator of solutions and can build ways to incorporate multiple platforms in order to get the company's message out most effectively.
