A 6 month follow-up for any Aspire Reservation Sales program provides a boost of energy and allows a team to refocus at a time when it’s easy to lose momentum. This is an optional add-on to any traditional Reservation Sales program and helps re-align your team to focus on driving guest-centered conversations that result in more sales and higher revenue.
Because Aspire’s roots are in hospitality, we understand better than most that turnover and change within a reservations office is not only a consideration…it’s often the cost of doing business. That is why we designed an additional webinar support option for new hires who didn’t attend formal training with a certified Aspire coach.

Reservations leaders already have so much on their plates. Aspire can help you ensure agents have the tools to start building buying environments from day one, even when live or phone coaching sessions cannot be accommodated. Aspire will position your new hires for success by providing them with an online interactive webinar that ensures active learning and application of new knowledge to make for seamless transitions.

We firmly believe that even the best training is only as good as the ongoing support and learning that happens after a coach has left the building. This is why we designed a robust Keeping it Alive support system to help leaders keep their team focused on developing their new skills after the classroom program is over. KIA is a custom, private and dynamic follow-up partnership that includes online tools, quarterly calls with an Aspire coach, and ongoing support.
