    We're not using our CRM to its full potential.

    Contact management is just the beginning of what your CRM should be doing for you—and if you’re only using it as a database, you’re probably wasting money every month on tools you don’t need.

    Aside from keeping you organized, your CRM should be providing you visual sales forecasts, task management, and the ability to be fully functional in your CRM on the go. And if it isn’t doing these things, chances are, you have another tool in your tech stack that you’re paying for that is.

    We want to show you all the little things that make the best teams run smoothly and efficiently like:

    - Task automation
    - Event reminders
    - Email tracking alerts

    It's an important aspect that impacts our daily lives.

    As a business and leader, you play an instrumental role in helping your employees finding purpose, and it should start with your business being 'purpose-driven' instead on 'product/solution' driven.

    Many employees feel that they are just working for a paycheck and aren’t contributing to the greater good of society.

    Without a sense of purpose, it’s difficult for employees to connect with their work and their company. Working with a sense of purpose boosts employee motivation, productivity, morale, and overall job satisfaction.

    Key Takeaways

    - What is purpose or meaning?
    - How do I find it?
    - How can I help others to find it?
    - Why should I care?

    Combining #3brainselling with Neuroscience to accelerate growth
    Mark Erskine: ISM Fellow Aug 27 2019 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Reasons to Attend:

    Understanding brain development since caveman times provides the key to influencing others especially given the massive advances in neuroscience over recent years which has taken the art of persuasion beyond psychology into brain chemistry. The Reptilian brain, the Limbic system and the Neo Cortex can be likened to your “Gut”, “Heart” and “Head” brain. These three brains transmit data constantly to each other when we make decisions but if we want sales success we must first understand our own preferences by using behavioural profiling and then diagnose which of these dominates the customers brain to stimulate sales, increase conversion ratios and shorten sales cycles.

    Key Takeaways

    •Understand how the human brain has developed and how to use this in sales
    •Discovering your own behavioural brain preferences is the critical first step to managing your selling style
    •Learn what techniques stimulate which part of the brain and how to leverage them
    •Understand why selling has to stimulate each part of the brain to ensure success
    •Learn why so many training methodologies and programmes are too one dimensional to succeed.

    Lack of Pipeline: The Number 1 Reason You Are Not Hitting Quota
    ISM Fellow, Steve Burton Sep 24 2019 10:00 am UTC 30 mins
    Let’s face it… selling isn't easy. Sometimes it seems easier to lure a ravenous lion with a lettuce leaf than hit your monthly sales target. Even the best, most seasoned salespeople will feel pressurized from time to time and result in them not hitting the target. It’s this pressure that spawns excuses – excuses that detract attention away from a salesperson’s performance (or lack of it).

    I hate hearing excuses; it feels like people are trying to blame others rather than accepting their own failings. But what are the top excuses you’ll hear from a salesperson?
