(Digital) Keynotes and Outcomes

Empower Your Employees: Bottom up Branding.

As an executive of your company, chances are you can clearly articulate what you do. But does that hold true for your middle managers and your front line employees? Chances are that they can’t. And that is a problem. Your employees’ ability to clearly explain what they do, what the company does, and why it matters, is crucial to your ability to grow.

Permission Based Selling: How Saying Less Can Help Your Team Sell More

What if there was a way to sell your product without selling? What if you could get people interested in what you do, without telling them what you do? It is possible and highly effective when training your sales team. The 3-1-3 Method is a process of discovery that will challenge your sales team to explain what they do in 3 sentences, 1 sentences, and ultimately 3 words.

Ditching the act – Let Your Guard Down and Leading with Authenticity

People want to relate to people, and if your leadership team is only showcasing their success, they  are missing one of the best ways to connect with their employees. Authenticity in the workplace is more than being real. It is revealing who you really are. When you let down your guard and let people get to know you, then they might like you, and that forms the foundation for trust and loyalty.
