Deon Basson is the CEO of 2interact and has been doing his doctoral studies on what really differentiates the top performing salespeople. And the common denominator is …. The psychology of sales.

Applying the right psychology is far more important than the process of selling.

Running the first training to address this issue some people could make the shift to greater conversations while others could not. It became apparent that there was another skill salespeople need. Having spoken to numerous people, companies and academic institutions it became obvious that the key was to understand and apply how people differ. The focus at that time was to make sure that salespeople understand how people differ.

Deon Basson | Sales Communication Expert

So the Psychology of Sales was born.

This initial program focused very much on showing salespeople how people differ in the way that they think as well as how personalities differ. This program from Deon Basson was run for about 18 months, but from the experience it was realized that commonly found personality profiles did not serve the communication purpose effectively as they were not built for that (square peg in a round hole).

2interact and the people associated with the company realized that the true issue that they were trying to address was improving communication skills of salespeople and not personalities. In 2006 this was put into practice when the first form of the 2interact communication framework was defined and used in training programs.

In 2011 Deon Basson and 2interact was conducting training with an international bank. After the training the sales director approached 2interact to run a workshop for management and executives. That was the first step outside of the sales field and the real birth of what we stand for today.
