Greetings,

Thank you for listening to the episode. Your commitment to developing your selling skills, mindset and techniques is our motivation.

This podcast is dedicated to the overall success in the sales channel.  From the CEO to the front line salespeople, every role must be aligned, trained and committed, every day to achieve the desired outcome.  This is not done without a commitment to ongoing career development in learning market-relevant techniques, overcoming conceptual barriers, applying proactive and productive behaviors and projecting a positive attitude.

We see it often, sales leaders that send their team to training, but are too busy? – important? – delusional? To get themselves trained. Our guest today contends that Sales Leadership training would increase the impact of sales training by a factor of 10.

So hang onto your hats as Scott I discuss Training Sales Leaders with our guest, Steve Keating, episode 498 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

The experiences we encountered as children defined our reality.  This reality created our belief system.  Today these beliefs are still real, however, they may no longer be true.  There lies the rub.  What is true and what is our new reality?

Let’s get real – as Bill and I discuss The Power of Beliefs and other important ideas on episode 497 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.

Some days I just don’t feel like making calls, writing a proposal, or meeting with that difficult client. But despite how I feel I still need to get these things done. How then do I stay motivated, especially when I must do a task that I don’t particularly enjoy? One of my mentors tells me to, “Get a new feeling!” But just how do I do that?

Well, I hope you can stay focused long enough to discover how Scott and I are Staying Motivated and other great ideas on episode 492 of the Winning at Selling Podcast.
