The Salsify customer success leaders sought more than a customer success consulting firm. They wanted a partner to collaborate with that would have an impact quickly with essential skills and leadership training. Salsify partnered with Growth Molecules™ in two key ways:
- Customer Success Essential Skills Training and Enablement to improve communication, lead customers, and build confidence.
- Customer Success Leadership Training and Enablement to lead change effectively, mentor team members, and set team goals.
PART I. Education To Help Protect And Grow Revenue
“We brought in Growth Molecules™ to help our customer success and customer leadership team to learn essential skills. Our company understands the power of strong customer relationships to grow revenue. We were looking for a partner like Growth Molecules that not only teaches how to build rapport but also how to ask the right questions to grow customer trust in our platform.”
Enabling Customer Success Managers Pays Off.
TRAINING ENGAGEMENT RESULTS:
“The engagement immediately helped our CSMs lead customers with a growth mindset and the skills to apply emotional intelligence to client interactions. The engagement created a methodology for the team to follow without feeling scripted. We’ve had multiple cohorts of employees participate in the training as we continue to invest in our customer success team. We look forward to continuing this foundation and advanced proactive approach to managing customers in 2023 and beyond.”
PART II. Success and Leadership Education
Our leadership and essential skills-building hybrid learning program provides every CSM and leader, from early career to experienced, an opportunity to dive deeper into the essential skills that every customer success professional should practice and apply to make a revenue-leading growth impact on business outcomes through the client relationship.

These concepts are something that I can apply daily to my role.”
