Creating the Sale, How to Unleash Your Creative Genius
Regardless of what your job title reads, selling is a part of your success formula. From sales professionals to senior leadership, selling the vision is a process that requires creativity. Everything from acquiring resources to forming partnerships requires a selling skill these days. As time goes on, it gets more complicated too, as multiple decision makers and technology development changes the playing field. For these challenges, Sanders has a prescription: Leverage your creative genius! For the sales professional, in today's increasingly complex business environment, a completed sale and a satisfied client are often the result of dozens of problems solved. In many cases, the "system" doesn't anticipate the roadblocks, leaving it up to sales professionals to "create the sale." Tim believes that creativity shouldn't be confined to advertising agencies, product developers and media producers. It belongs in sales as much as anywhere else! In his career, Tim has sold over a half billion dollars of services by applying imagination, story telling, visual impact and novel approaches to solving problems. A New York Times bestselling author and former Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo!, he's learned the secret to maintaining one's creative sales genius. In this talk, Tim will outline why creativity is the key to achieve Access, Advocacy and Agreement with clients. He'll also provide relevant case studies on how out-of-the-box thinking has helped generate sales and acquire scarce resources.
Relationship Power! How To Win Business & Influence People
Building business relationships is not a matter of playing golf, the gift of gab or being a rubber stamp on others' ideas. There is an art and a science to being a relationship master at work. Studies show that it can boost your sales by 40%, drive your talent's productivity by 25% and cut regrettable turnover in half. In this program Tim reveals winning ways to create and maintain real connections inside & outside your company. This program is based on his global best seller, Love Is the Killer App: How To Win Business & Influence Friends.
Power of Confident Thinking
Sure, we have business confidence at the top of a market or if we are leading the change. But what's our plan to seize the moment when the playing field changes... or recedes? Our competition is hit just as hard as we are, and now it's a race to see who gets their Mojo back first. History proves that business confidence is rocket fuel for a company. It cracks the code, closes the deal and moves people to action.It's not enough to "think positive" though, sustainable confidence comes from lifestyle and leadership design. This program is based on Sanders' experience through three recessions, the dotcom boom and the quality movement.
Emotional Talent, The Final Leadership Frontier
Many leaders rise to their position through their technical skills from operations to finance to product. But they will never make the leap from good to great until they develop what Tim Sanders calls Emotional Talent. This is the ability to manage their internal emotions, sense those in their people and connect with them at that level. This program, which was the basis for a PBS Special, offers ways any leader can cultivate this talent, and spot it in others. It's based on 500,000 pages of original research.
