    Kevin Eikenberry, The Remarkable Leadership Expert

  • How to Manage Your Team’s Performance Inside A Large Account Sep 18 2019 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Barbara Weaver Smith, The Large Account Sales Expert
    Description: Part #9 in the series Your Growth Ecosystem: Don’t Think Small About Your Big Accounts. For CEOs, Presidents, Founders/Owners, Business Development Heads, Sales VPs, and Key Account Managers of companies of any size, with special relevance to those with $10 million to $500 million in annual revenue. The series is a strategic, high-level approach to managing your organization to successfully sell and grow sales to multinational and global corporations.
    When you have sold a deal into a big corporation, you will often have a delivery team inside that account, led by a project manager, at the same time that another sales rep or account manager from your company is working to land new business. The new business opportunity may be in another facility—in another region, a different subsidiary, even another country. Far too often, there is no contact between the team inside and the team selling new business. That’s a huge lack of foresight and opportunity, both to serve your client better and to improve your chances of success. This webinar is about how to manage your inside team(s) to produce steady new revenue from your large account.

    You will learn:

    1. What assumptions you should make about your global clients.
    2. How management training and sales training needs to address these issues.
    3. What opportunities you should be looking for.
    4. How to use this circumstance to become a trusted advisor.
    5. How to align your sales strategy with your customer’s strategic objectives.

  • Helping New Leaders Succeed in the Toughest Transition of Their Career Sep 4 2019 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Kevin Eikenberry, The Remarkable Leadership Expert
    Getting promoted to a supervisory role is exciting . . . and scary. A promotion to leadership, supervision or management brings new responsibilities, new relationship dynamics, and new opportunities for personal and career growth. And often, new leaders don’t get the training, support, and guidance they need to be successful.

    Did you know that 40% of new managers fail within the first 18 months of promoting them? Why? They got promoted because they were good at their job—not because they can actually lead people. They’ve never led people, dealt with challenging time management issues, administered company policy or had to deal with upper management directly before. In other words, they’re completely unprepared.

    The good news is first-time managers and supervisors can learn the kinds of things it usually takes managers years to learn. Whether you are in learning and training or HR wanting to help others in this important and challenging position or are that new leader yourself, this interactive and informative webinar will help you be more effective and successful.

    You will learn:

    1. The most common mistakes new leaders make (and some solutions)
    2.The four perspectives that must change for a new supervisor to be successful
    3.How to manage relationships and expectations during the transition – up, down and across the organization

  • Three Strategies to Accelerate Sales in the Age of Information Overload Aug 27 2019 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Shari Levitin, The Sales Evolution Expert
    Here’s a statistic that will boggle your mind: Humans consume 74 gigabytes, the equivalent of 175 newspapers of content, per day. Customers are assaulted with facts, pseudo facts, white papers, media and statistics all posing as relevant information. Much of the well sourced information is contradictory. Sorting the “need to knows” from the “nice to knows” can be exhausting. Add to this a new average of
    ten stake holders and more and more customers are defaulting to the status quo or a no deal. What’s the solution? New research, just released by Gartner, reveals that sellers who help make sense of information, who can simplify and tune into the feelings of their customers rather than piling on more data, significantly outperform
    their peers. How must sellers adapt to this new reality? What are the three most important behaviors to this new reality of sense making?

    In this webinar you will learn to:

    1. Leverage video to reach additional stakeholders and improve customer experience.
    2. Create buyer focused presentations that drive your unique value.
    3. Ask questions that line up with how the brain processes information.
    4. Guide buyers to a buying decision through stories, metaphors and anecdotes.

  • How to Lead the Buyers’ Process in Large Accounts Recorded: Aug 21 2019 42 mins
    Barbara Weaver Smith, The Large Account Sales Expert
    Description: Part #8 in the series Your Growth Ecosystem: Don’t Think Small About Your Big Accounts. For CEOs, Presidents, Founders/Owners, Business Development Heads, Sales VPs, and Key Account Managers of companies of any size, with special relevance to those with $10 million to $500 million in annual revenue. The series is a strategic, high-level approach to managing your organization to successfully sell and grow sales to multinational and global corporations.
    Volumes have been written about how to match your sales process to “the buyers’ journey.” Frankly I think most people involved in selecting and influencing big, complex buying decisions in large corporations don’t have any real clue how to do it. Procurement people have a set of procedures and rules, but they still have to satisfy the end users, who may have very different ideas about what criteria are most important. And the relative power of procurement and executive users varies greatly. Smart sellers know how to lead the buyers to the right decision, and how to do that is the subject of this webinar.

    You will learn:

    1. How to locate and connect with the appropriate buyers and influencers.
    2. How to plan with an internal team.
    3. How to plan for the initial meeting..
    4. How to prepare great questions.
    5. What to do when the process stalls.

    In this presentation, we are moving from the 3-part phase on “Structure” into the first of 3 webinars in the “Process” phase, starting with your company’s sales process. Although the so-called “Buyer’s Journey” is of course chronological, I reject the notion that it can be reduced to a linear series of steps in a process. It’s much more cumbersome and convoluted than your CRM typically allows you to believe! This session is about how to manage that process and teach your sales reps how to manage it.

  • Improving Sales Effectiveness: Secrets to Winning Against the Status Quo! Recorded: Jul 12 2019 38 mins
    Thomas J. Williams, The Complex Sale Expert
    Sales effectiveness is more than doing the right thing—it’s doing the best thing at the appropriate time and with the right people. In most sales there is a powerful adversary that can mobilize support, prove value and assuage the fear of change—the status quo.

    Sellers have learned through trial and error to never underestimate the power of internal solutions or incumbent suppliers. The status quo can be a strongly entrenched, competitive force with executive supporters. It can have an impressive performance record with documented costs, risks, and benefits. Buyers who like the status quo are NOT receptive to change.

    For most sellers the Status Quo is their most formidable competitor. In this webinar we’ll unlock the secrets to winning against the status quo.


    You will learn:

    •What are the 4 Forms of the Status Quo?
    •When Does the Status Quo Win?

    •How will these Secrets Help the Seller’s Strategy?
