How to Cold Call and Build New Customers
(10:00 AM - 01:00 PM)
Length: 3-hour Live Online Workshop
Cold calling has never been tougher. As soon as the prospect figures out you're a sales person the immediate responses are "no budget," "we're in a purchasing freeze", or "call me in six months if things are any better."But we all know that there is always money available to buy something that provides real value to the prospect. The trick is to get your value proposition in front of the prospect in such a compelling way that you turn off the automatic "no" response.

Performance Reviews That Motivate
(02:00 PM - 03:00 PM)
Length: 1-hour Live Online Webinar
Let's face it. We don't often think that "performance review" and "motivation" belong in the same sentence. Performance reviews can cause anxiety in the associates being appraised and the manager responsible for conducting them. An effective performance review can be an opportunity for honest, open conversation about positive and negative results. It can inspire and engage people when it is focused on plans for the future. By setting expectations and helping associates to create achievable targets well in advance, then coaching and providing adequate feedback throughout the year, performance management becomes part of the culture rather than a dreaded annual event. People support what they help to create. Very few people are motivated by criticism. In this fast-paced webinar, explore ways to conduct RAVE performance reviews and plan your performance conversations so that staff members feel encouraged, inspired and ready to exceed expectations. Performance Reviews that Motivate is part of the Keys To Success Webinar Series.
