Sales Excellence
Sales Professionals don't have a knowledge problem. They have an implementation problem. If sales professionals consistently did the things they know they should do your sales department and business would see unprecedented growth and profitability. The Power of Consistency for Sales Excellence is based on Weldon's newest book and the sales lessons he learned growing his business from his living room to $20,000,000 in revenue and becoming one of Inc. Magazine's fastest growing small companies in America. This sales system solves the implementation problem using a comprehensive three-step process proven to deliver consistent and exceptional sales results. The reason many sales training programs fail to deliver long-term results is because they offer only a one-part solution to a three-part problem. To create sustainable sales results three critical components must be addressed. The Power of Consistency for Sales Excellence delivers a high-octane three step process that will transform sales results.
Personal Excellence
Bad things happen to great companies and wonderful people. Unfortunately that's just a fact of life. That's the bad news. The good news is that we are rarely defined by the bad things that come our way. We are defined by the decisions we make about how to deal with the adversity that comes our way in Life and Business. Whether it's a bad economy, a cheap competitor or an unreasonable customer in business or a personal struggle in life,everyone faces challenges. And regardless of the adversity, there are always examples of companies and individuals who are thriving in the face of similar challenges. This dynamic and powerful inspirational keynote is based on Weldon Long's award winning memoir, The Upside of Fear How one man broke the cycle of prison, poverty and addiction. Attendees will learn how to overcome any business or personal challenge and thrive in the face of adversity. Not only will the audience be inspired to transcend problems, they will learn the powerful formula Mr. Long developed and used to go from "walking the yard" in a high security prison to walking the beaches of Maui.The lessons learned can help any company or individual create financial success and prosperity regardless of the external threat or challenge.
Leadership Excellence
All too often mangers, supervisors and other leaders attempt to lead others without first creating a clear vision of future success or gaining personal and professional mastery over themselves. The Power of Consistency for Leadership Excellence is a dynamic and thought provoking keynote that forces an honest personal assessment of our own effectiveness before attempting to lead others. Through a poignant and humorous discussion of how Weldon Long went from starting a company in his living room with zero employees to becoming the CEO of his own INC 5000 company, attendees will learn how to develop characteristics of personal and professional excellence and inspire those attributes in others. As Mr. Long weaves his personal story of triumph over tribulation on his gut wrenching journey from prison, poverty and addiction to becoming a dynamic inspirational leader, attendees will hang on the edge of their seats.
HVAC Excellence
In 2005, Weldon Long opened a small Residential HVAC Company in his living room. By 2009, he had generated $20,000,000 in revenue and was selected by INC Magazine and one of America's fastest growing small companies. Amazingly, when he started his company, the only thing Mr. Long knew about the HVAC industry was how to adjust his thermostat; nevertheless, he quickly generated over $20,000,000 in sales... one kitchen table at a time! In this industry specific keynote Weldon Long will inspire and teach attendees to redefine their expectations for the Residential HVAC industry. Most HVAC contractors have a vision of what their company will look like, yet often the reality is far different from that vision. This real-life "straight from the streets" program will teach HVAC Professionals how to make the dream a reality.
