For any aspiring business, from a new firm seeking to establish itself to an organization progressing beyond its founding goals, making the best match between opportunities and capabilities is crucial. And in doing so, there is often no truly effective way to take other than the direct course of personal sales.

This month will feature an astute and highly accomplished sales trainer discussing how small business leaders can overcome the many obstacles to selling, managing their teams, and growing their firms. Your takeaways from the conversation will include how to:

  • Gain the upper hand during sales calls and prevent unpaid consulting
  • Roll out simple behavior modification that lead them to quota achievement
  • Build proactive prospecting plans to fill pipelines and drive new business
  • Shorten sales cycles by avoiding time wasters and unqualified prospects
