Sales on Fire: Stop, Drop, and Roll

Leaders are only as effective as those they lead. Does the intention of your communication always match the impact you have on others? Are people effectively executing your vision? Has the volatile marketplace made it challenging to stick to a game plan? This session is about what you don’t know that you don’t know about effective communication, decision making, and understanding people. By understanding how Emotional Intelligence impacts a person’s ability to win deals, you come face to face with opportunities to challenge your current assumptions, habits and beliefs and create a new action plan for tomorrow based on the realities and discoveries of today.

Lunch will be provided.
