Due to the expanding involvement of multiple people (and functions) in the decision process, sales cycles are getting longer and the entire process is becoming more complex. As a result, customers prefer not to change and to remain with the status quo. This leads to a lot of frustration for sellers and a great loss of productivity.
We will discuss the realities of today’s complex selling environment and how to avoid pitfalls that lengthen the process. You will also hear about how to maintain the value of your offering while keeping your credibility and leverage strong. Most important, we will give you the details of six proven strategies to shorten the sales cycle:
1. Factor in the decision process.
2. Stop excessive and unnecessary reorganizations.
3. Sell solutions that impact business.
4. Manage internal expectations.
5. Don’t overcomplicate it.
6. Avoid unprincipled concessions.
This training event is not based on theory, but rather on the specific strategies and tactics developed by top international negotiation expert Mladen Kresic.

Research shows that people leaves bosses, not jobs. So, what is a person to do if they love what they do, but not who they are reporting to? Bosses who are verbally abusive, bullying, blaming, passive/aggressive, micromanaging or any combination of these, do untold damage to the organizations which tolerates them and to the health and careers of their direct reports.
It is not unusual for Employees to feel at least disrespected, fearful, angry, lonely, dis-empowered, shame, and guilt. Their perceived choices? Leave, stay and suffer becoming more disengaged and stressed, or participate in the dysfunction, making a bad situation worse, for all concerned.
There is another choice.
This webinar will give you coping tips and techniques so that you can choose to keep doing what you are doing with less stress, more control and therefore allowing you to make better choices.

Aaron Polikaitis, VP, Vendor Sourcing & Management, IDC's IT Executive ProgramFeb 28 20194:00 pmUTC60 mins
CIOs, CPOs and business unit leaders overwhelmingly agree that technology sourcing and procurement is critical for digital transformation and legacy system modernization. Nevertheless, recent IDC research confirms that technology sourcing and procurement organizations are challenged to deliver what their businesses require. IT and line of business executives report of their procurement organizations that:
• 54% do not understand business needs
• 62% are undermined by shadow procurement
• Only 10% work effectively within cross-functional teams
Procurement organizations have a choice of transforming themselves or watching other enterprise organizations assume the responsibility for sourcing the technology that supports key business initiatives. In this IDC web conference, we will identify the top challenges identified by Procurement, IT, and LOB executives, and discuss strategies for transforming procurement organizations from tactical administrative centers to strategic sourcing partners for the enterprise.
George Kinder, Kinder Institute of Life PlanningMar 4 20195:00 pmUTC60 mins
Step boldly into your greatness by accessing the present moment. Thought leader, mindfulness teacher/author, and finance guru George Kinder unveils his life’s work with a Map of Mindfulness. He uses the map to explain new forms of leadership, economics, and democracy all rooted in the present moment.
This radical 60-minute talk offers insight into how you can personally apply his methods to access your inner leader and enhance your performance in every aspect of life: at work, with your family, and in your relationships. Kinder explores how strong leadership skills come from being present. Always residing in the present moment means you are ready for anything from inspired action to empathic wisdom.
His leadership system democratizes entrepreneurial spirit, maximizing both innovation and growth across society as it maximizes the efficient allocation of human capital. He shifts the frame of economic thinking by grounding all of space and time in the present moment and argues that moments of freedom rather than moments of transaction become our focus. He proposes self-knowledge as a more sustainable motivator than self-interest.
In just one hour, you will understand the present, how to access it, and how it enhances your leadership potential. You’ll discover how to live in the moment and inspire others. You’ll gain a new way of visioning what is possible for the organizations and communities you represent and the tools to take steps to enact change now.
Kinder’s work aims to impact civilization. He’s recently launched a grassroots movement of community conversations happening globally that asks attendees to vision a Golden Civilization and then work to establish it now. His latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness, is available for pre-order on Amazon now and can be purchased March 4, 2019. To celebrate the book’s launch, we offer attendees of the live BrightTALK on March 4 a special one-day price of $1.29 for the Kindle version.
