    Lori Richardson, The Sales Hiring Assessment Expert w/guest Anne Miler
    Millions of dollars are left on the table and hundreds of ideas fail to get off the ground every day because of the over-communicated society in which we live.

  • Leadership Skills You Need Now: Holding Reps Accountable Recorded: Sep 24 2020 49 mins
    Kristie Jones, The SaaS_Startup Expert
    These are awkward times. You and your sales reps are still working from home. You’re being asked to think about equality and how that might change your leadership style. You and your team are under a lot of pressure to hit the revised (or not) revenue targets you’ve been given AND the end of the quarter is just days away.

    It’s a lot. I get it. But not holding your reps accountable to activity, net new pipeline, pipeline hygiene, and their quota isn’t the answer. If you have a Culture of Accountability (and I’m assuming you do) you owe it to yourself, your reps, and your company to continue to lead your team as you did in February.

    In this presentation, Kristie Jones, Founder, and Principal of Sales Acceleration Group share her tactics for setting expectations, getting buy-in, and holding reps accountable even during times of uncertainty and economic challenges.

    You will learn:

    ●How to have expectation conversations
    ●How to teach reps that you’re going to hold them accountable
    ●Why it’s necessary to hold reps accountable - especially now
    ●How to establish consequences for missing expectations
    ●What to do with accountability dodgers
  • Secrets to Expand Existing Client Engagements Recorded: Sep 23 2020 44 mins
    Merit Kahn, The Sales Mindset Expert
    Salespeople are paid to land new business or expand on existing business. They know they are in sales, they’ve been trained in selling techniques and they understand that their livelihood and the health of the business depends on their ability to sell. Sure you can spend more resources to help them improve, but you’d be missing out on a secret sales force… so secret they don’t even know they are in sales.

    Experts, consultants, estimators, project managers, advisors and other non-selling professionals have face time with decision makers and influencers, the expertise to ask questions that uncover real needs and most importantly… they always get past the gatekeepers. The problem is if you try to turn them into salespeople or try and convince them sales is not a dirty word, you will fail.
    This session will provide your salespeople with some helpful tips, but more importantly, it will open up new possibilities to generate revenue by solving real problems for your existing clients.
    If you or your company sells professional services, custom solutions or anything creative, this session is for you.

    You will learn:

    1. How to frame serving so it’s not seen as selling
    2. What non-selling professionals can do to expand business without being salesy at all
    3. Potential revenue growth if only a few experts expanded business just a little
    4. Why “selling for non-selling professionals” is a total turn off to your non-selling pros

  • Top Tech and Technique to Sell More & Stress Less Recorded: Aug 27 2020 43 mins
    Merit Kahn, The Sales Mindset Expert and Julie Holmes, Technology & Innovation Strategist
    Which is worse... great sales technology with lousy technique or great sales technique without the power of technology? Answer... both will keep you playing small when it comes to big sales.

    These days to be successful in sales takes tech and technique... think of this presentation as the peanut butter meets chocolate solution.

Merit has been working with sales professionals on technique since 1998 and Julie is like a human resource of sales tech tools.

    Amy Franko, The Strategic Sales Expert
