Brainshark and CloudCoaching International Expand Partnership to Offer Expert Sales Coaching for Better Business Performance

Brainshark for Coaching Now Provides Virtual, Personalized Coaching Sessions From Professionals at CCI, Founded by Renowned Business Strategists Tony Robbins and Walter Rogers

Waltham, Mass. and Houston – October 12, 2016 – Brainshark, Inc., delivering SaaS-based sales enablement solutions, and CloudCoaching International (CCI), a leading global sales performance training and technology company, today announced an expanded partnership to help organizations improve sales readiness and performance. Through the partnership, Brainshark for Coaching customers can now gain access to CCI’s sales performance experts for personalized, virtual coaching sessions – tapping into the experts’ knowledge and proven successes to drive greater results from their coaching initiatives.  

Brainshark’s award-winning sales coaching technology empowers managers to coach their teams anytime, anywhere. Sales reps can practice their calls, presentations, sales messaging and more, and receive instant, detailed feedback from managers, peers and – now – CCI expert coaching professionals.

With CCI’s professional coaching services, sales leaders can get their coaching culture off to a strong start, scale their programs and provide personalized, expert advice to their sales teams that ensures higher performance. CCI was co-founded by America’s No. 1 business and life strategist, Tony Robbins – who has reached over 50 million people with his best-selling books, events, speaking engagements and more – and Walter Rogers, a thought-leader in sales and change management, who has created and led businesses in 13 countries on three continents.

In addition to the coaching services, CCI continues to provide eLearning content through Brainshark for Coaching. Now, through the expanded partnership, Brainshark for Coaching users can also opt to take advantage of:

  • Individual coaching reviews by a CCI expert – delivered through the Brainshark for Coaching interface and personalized based on each rep’s presentations and needs.
  • Interactive group workshops – delivered virtually by CCI and including best practices to help reps deliver exceptional presentations and to kick off a successful coaching program.
  • “Game-tape reviews” – where CCI experts analyze reps’ recorded presentations and develop action plans during virtual group sessions.

The sessions are designed to equip reps with the preparation, skill development and real-world advice they need to achieve greater levels of sales success. “World-class performance never happens by accident,” Robbins said.

Rogers added: “It’s guided practice that makes perfect, and for sales reps, coaching plays a critical role. Getting personalized advice from a hands-on, expert coach – who’s familiar with the landscape and strategies for success – brings reps’ performance to the next level. By pairing CCI’s deep-seated knowledge with Brainshark’s acclaimed coaching technology and delivery platform, sales teams can execute more effectively and be prepared to close more deals.”

Training more than 50 percent of the Fortune 500 sales teams, CCI’s coaches hold many external certifications. With credentials from the International Coach Federation (ICF), the International Association of Coaching (IAC) and more, CCI coaches undergo rigorous internal certifications as well. They coach all levels of employees to higher performance: from sales reps to sales management to executive management.

“Consistent and valuable sales coaching is a critical part of improving sales effectiveness,” said Brainshark CEO Greg Flynn. “We’re pleased to work with CCI, who shares our philosophy and whose coaches are world-class, to give companies a powerful way to improve sales readiness.

With Brainshark’s technology, reps can be trained and perfect their pitches in our virtual role-playing platform. They can then receive feedback from their managers, peers and – thanks to our CCI partnership – professional experts as well.”
