Summit Kick-Off "10 Years of Learning" 

Ten years of selling to, and working with executive sales leaders has been an amazing journey. At this year’s Summit, EcSell Institute’s first employee, Will Kloefkorn will be the event emcee and will bring a heartfelt and energetic narrative which nobody else can provide.

"For the Love of Coaching"

How much has your company progressed?  How much have you evolved?  Are you a high performance coach or a manager of tasks an duties?  Can you prove that what you do is having a positive impact on your team’s performance?

10 years ago, EcSell’s first client said “the moment my managers stop developing means they have put their career on hold”.  If his words resonate with you, then your evolution as a coach cannot cease!  If sustained growth is the goal (which is always true in business) there can be no destination, but only an advancing journey of personal improvement that perpetuates the growth of your team. Join Bill as he challenges everyone to continue the coaching quest that touches so many lives.

"IGNITE: How do you get someone else committed to reaching their full potential?" 

It’s a question that challenges new managers and seasoned executives alike, echoes through coaches’ heads as they watch a gifted athlete underachieve, and keeps parents up at night. It’s a question that you need to be able to answer to move your work team to high performance and enable your children to achieve self-reliance and success. It’s also a question Peter Jensen has spent a lifetime investigating.

In Ignite the Third Factor, Peter synthesizes his life’s work into the five core practices exceptional leaders use to ignite the Third Factor—whether it’s in the locker room before a gold medal Olympic hockey game or at a routine performance review.

High performance is not possible without pressure. As a leader—you can determine whether stress and pressure will extinguish the flame of high performance or ignite the desire in others to reach ever higher levels. Peter works through an easy-to-understand model, providing a clear view of what separates ‘igniters’ from ‘extinguishers’ and exploring a wealth of strategies you can put to use immediately in your world.

“The Sales Leader’s Role in Mastering the Complex Sale”

High dollar stakes, multiple buying influences, long sales cycles, technical and integration complexities is it getting harder to close a large enterprise deal? The salespeople are responsible for approaching companies to land large deals. They need to find and move these deals through the sales funnel. It’s not as easy as it used to be and it requires sales manager and upper level sales leaders to become involved. Without doing the salesperson’s job, what is your role in closing these complex sales. As the line manager how do you coach the deal, when do you get involved and when do you bring in senior management. When you do, what is their role?

In this powerful session you will:

  • Clearly understand the complex sale and what makes it challenging
  • Understand your role in moving the sale forward
  • Learn how your coaching can lead to closing more of these large deals

Walk away with new ideas for coaching the complex sale at your organization.
