Role-Playing in Training Sales people

salespeople to answer customer concerns by using a technique called role-playing. In this technique, the employee being trained plays the role of salesperson, while the trainer plays the role of customer, and they act out a selling scenario. This can help salespeople become more successful by learning to overcome the challenges they may face in an actual sales environment.
