We Are Here
Ninja Selling is a training system based on a philosophy of building relationships, listening to your customer, and helping them achieve their goals. It is a philosophy that rejects pushy sales tactics. We believe it is better to create value for people by solving their problems. The selling part then takes care of itself.
Why Do We Call It Ninja Selling?
In 1976, Larry Kendall and his other partners founded one of the highest producing real estate companies in the country, called The Group, Inc. Real Estate. One of The Group Inc.’s sales partners, Jim Dunlap, was nicknamed “The Ninja” by the staff in his office. Everyone noticed that Jimmy D. had enormous sales volume, great customer satisfaction and referrals, and also seemed to have a life outside of his career. He had by far the highest income per hour of any salesperson in the company. So Larry began documenting the sales systems used by Jimmy and other top sales people at The Group, Inc., and in 1994, Ninja Selling was born.
Larry began teaching the Ninja system in Colorado and by 2013 was teaching it at Kansas State University, Colorado State University and University of Charleston Colleges of Businesses. Today, Ninja Selling has over 100,000 graduates and is taught all over the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Spain.
