Seminar

Seminar Room

Are leaders born or can they be made? I often hear people suggest the he or she is a born leader and so that question has driven me to carry out my own research and studies over many years and this is what I believe. 1. Strong Communication - Without a doubt, being an effective communicator is a top attribute of a strategic leader. ... 2. Collaboration – creating strategic partnerships increases your skill base and reach. 3. Resilience – the ability to continually overcome adversity and challenges. 4. Innovation – continually looking to technology and service improvements will keep you ahead of the competition. 5. Passion & Commitment - Enthusiasm for your mission or project will get others excited because they can see and feel your dedication. ... 6. Total Positivity - A positive attitude is contagious. ...

Why salespeople should behave like athletes


1:35 pm

1:55 pm

Seminar

Seminar Room

Ever wondered why sport is always held up as an example to business? Or why so many successful athletes and sports team managers write books aimed at business people? For most of us who have ‘normal’ jobs, our experience of how sport can be of benefit is usually limited to some sort of ‘shot in the arm’ attempt at motivation. Sales is especially prone to referencing the power of sport as an example for improved performance, but a powerful speech, or an amazing story doesn’t help three months later when the market’s tough. In this seminar you will hear that if you get beyond the motivational speeches and snappy quotes, there are tools and skills you can take directly from professional sport which will improve your sales ability. If you are in sales, and everyone sells something, you cannot afford to miss this.
