Friday, May 10 2013 @ 3 ET/ 2 CT/ 1 MT/ 12 PT
MANA, PTRA, NMRA, IHRA, IMRA & AIM/R in conjunction with Sa1esWise, are offering a series of FREE, one-hour, monthly conference calls to help you move your business to the next level.
Even if you can't attend, please register. That way, we will send you the link to the recording so you can listen at your convenience and you won't miss a thing.
Manufacturers' agents and manufacturers face unusual circumstances these days. No matter what the business climate, they can operate in practical and positive ways that help navigate during hard times…and reap the rewards.
One way is to understand your personal talents and develop them into solid strengths. To prepare for this Teleforum, we encourage you to take Gallup’s StrengthsFinder assessment. You’ll need to buy one of their StrengthsFinder books (there are a number of them) which provide a unique access code. Then go on-line (instructions are in the book) and take the 25 minute assessment. Once completed, Gallup will immediately give you your top 5 strengths. We will spend part of our discussion exploring how to apply your strengths to your job – whether you are a leader in a rep firm or manufacturer, or a rep.
Recommended books, all available on Amazon (just buy one – the assessment is exactly the same but it is valid for ONE USER ONLY):
Discover Your Sales Strengths: How the World’s Greatest Salespeople Develop Winning Careers, by Smith and Rutigliano
Strengths Based Leadership, by Rath and Conchie
StrengthsFinder 2.0, by Rath
Now, Discover Your Strengths, by Marcus Buckingham
Gilbert Leblond of Marktech, Inc. will be our co-facilitator as we talk about:
- Practical ideas to drive more visibility and revenue in difficult times
- Ideas to understand exactly what your ideal client and ideal supplier look like, so you increase your odds of attracting them
- How to leverage the talents and strengths of others in your organization - to become really successful (and happy)
- Resource books that are full of ideas that can help you increase sales, become more organized, and create a culture of excellence that outperforms the competition – more easily
- And more
