Matthew Linklater, Sales Training Expert, On Staying in the GREEN ZONE in Communication

Matthew Linklater, author of Quick Witted: Saying the Right Thing to Win Big and trainer in the areas of business and personal success, writes about the technique of maintaining a broad perspective with clients to earn sales.

Chicago, IL – January 21, 2010 – Matthew Linklater, certified practitioner and coach of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, expert in Time Line TherapyTM, hypnotist, speaker and author, recently published an article on his website ( about a communication technique in his book, Hierarchy of Ideas. The article, titled “Communication Technique: Stay in the Green if You Know What I Mean!” argues that training your sales staff to stay in the GREEN ZONE will keep the interest and win the loyalty of your clients and customers.

Linklater writes, “Have you ever engaged in sales communication, where the conversation simply did not go your way? You gave all the details that your prospective buyer would have needed… You broke down play by play, how your product or service operates, so your prospective client would understand the specific logistics of the company’s service steps and the product’s functionalities. You did all that! And still no sale. What could you possibly be doing wrong?”

“In my professional sales training process, our clients learn how to stay within the right range between abstraction and specificity with their communication. For example, if someone is selling a medical product, there is an important zone within which the salesperson should stay with their communication in order to maintain the attention and interest of the buyer. Within this zone, the seller is offering enough information so as not to be too general, but he or she does not overwhelm the buyer with too much information. … By strictly keeping a broader perspective with your communication for a prolonged period of time, others will remain interested and buy into your product or service more easily,” argues Linklater.
