Diving For Referral Pearls: Cultivating Quality Referrals

The referral sales training program is customized to fit the specific challenges of your organization.

Cultivating Quality Referrals is VITAL for sales in today’s tough economic times.

In this motivational, thought-provoking and highly entertaining program, Dean digs deep into the three keys to Consistently Cultivating Quality Referrals.

Each program is uniquely designed for your industry and offers valuable techniques and insights into how to develop a successful referral mindset.

Quality Referrals CAN BE CULTIVATED, and Dean’s program show you HOW!

Referrals = Business Growth. Dean shares proven ways to build that trust, become more referable and begin cultivating quality referrals.

Insight into Key # 1 to Cultivating Quality Referrals – Becoming Buzzworthy

To cultivate quality referrals and ensure business growth, it is key to provide so much value, so much heat, and so much enthusiasm that customers are inspired to talk about us and refer us. We must be worthy of attention, worthy of the spotlight, worthy of wattage, and worthy of the referrals.

We must not only show enthusiasm for our work – we must HAVE enthusiasm for our work. If we want prospects to get excited about our products and services, we need to have that excitement, first. Likewise, if we want others to believe in our products and services, we must believe in our products and services before they will!

Enthusiasm shows in the way we hold ourselves and in the passion we have for our jobs and our lives. If we want loyal customers and referrals (and we do), then we need to feel worthy of loyal customers and referrals. I am sure you have sensed by now that, whenever possible, people do business with people they like. Passion for our lives and belief in our work make us attractive and likable. They draw people to us. In sales, we have got to be on. Have game. Bring heat. Same is true for customer-service professionals and those in leadership.

Always TIME to Progress!!

Time Management Training is Really SELF Management Training! As Sales and Customer Service Professionals:

•Where do you commit your time?
•Is procrastination a problem?
•What is an effective use of your time?
•Do you need to exercise better “time management?”

Each of us invest some of our time in daily activities that do not serve our goals. Time is the great equalizer. Time Management is really self-management, with a respect for time. Learning and consistently utilizing effective time management strategies turns a perishable resource into a source of productivity and profits. Dean’s Always Time for Progress program reveals hindering habits and supplies a detailed framework for developing a progress-based personal action plan.

The advantages of effective time management training are significant. Sales and Customer Service Professionals can INVEST MORE TIME:

•Making More Sales
•Serving Customers
•Building Priceless Business Relationships
•Networking
•Increasing Productivity
•Maximizing Quality
•Delivering Excellent Customer Service
•Meeting Deadlines
•Achieving Objectives WASTE LESS TIME:
•Struggling with Paperwork
•Dealing with Interruptions
•Procrastinating
•Attending Unproductive Meetings

Being progress puts wind in our sails and in our sales. Becoming a Business Attraction Magnet is about trust. The customer has a need, or a step they desire to take. They must trust we can meet that need and help them take that step. Customers and prospects need to trust our belief in ourselves, in our companies, and in our products and services.”

Welcoming the Rise of PROGRESS LEADERSHIP – Change Management is DEAD!!

The business term change management has been around for a good long while.  The term relates to “initiating significant change” within an organization’s processes. This change can include anything from altering work culture to embracing diversity to modifying an individual’s work tasks to increasing company morale and loyalty.  The goal of “initiating significant change” is solid, but where is the passion in the word choice? The problem with the term “change management” is that no one really desires to change or plans to change. We desire and plan to progress.

We don’t need Change Agents!  We need Progress Agents!!

  • Progress Agents don’t just TELL people what to do.
  • Progress Agents include others in the progress as well as the process.
  • Progress Agents shape, nourish, and sustain the thoughts that create the actions necessary to reach desired results.
  • Progress Agents work to positively influence thoughts and feelings as well as oversee actions.It takes more than the title of supervisor, manager, or “change agent” to lead people in the direction of progress. We all want to be in relationships with people and organizations, as well as work on projects that bring progress to our lives.

Progress leadership means working to understand and communicate how a team member’s personal goals can dovetail with the organization’s goals and thus create true commitment that gets the team member to act -because he or she wants to, not because they have to.

Moving our focus from change management training to progress leadership creates a shift in power from wielding power over employees to creating power among employees. Progress Agents thus create a work culture in which empowered employees are committed to finding what is truly the next step forward.

Goodbye, tired old Change Management. Hello, Progress Leadership!

Too Stressed to Progress? Safety

Workplace stress is rarely part of anyone’s job description, but it is unfortunately part of most jobs, especially in the safety industry. It is tough to progress when we are stressed. In fact, we feel stress when we feel we are being hindered from progressing in our jobs.

Stress is very dangerous, not to mention expensive. Businesses across the U.S. lose $200-$300 billion dollars annually to stress, resulting in loss in productivity (i.e., less progress) and treatment costs.

Effects of stress in the workplace include safety accidents and injuries, absenteeism, disruptive outbursts and the tendency to do as little as possible to get by. All reduce productivity and damage an organization’s bottom line. Plus, many do not have a well-defined boundary between work and home, and end up taking work problems home with us and letting them affect our personal lives.

Check this: Stress not only limits our progress; stress can and will kill us — if we don’t take action!
•Stress-related problems, according to the American Institute for Stress, are responsible for 75% to 90% of doctor visits.
•The American Medical Association says that stress is now the basic cause of over 60% of all diseases and illnesses .
•A study conducted by the University of London found that unmanaged reactions to stress were more likely to lead to cancer and heart disease than either smoking cigarettes or eating foods high in the bad kind of cholesterol. Often, we invest so much time dealing with stress that we don’t take time to progress.

How to deal with or relate to the stressful stimuli in this high-tech, low-touch world of speed-of-light change is a vital and important topic that desperately needs discussion. To avoid the peaks and valleys of productivity created by high stress levels, we need to know how to balance the urgent demands of work life and personal life. Even when things are going smoothly, the cumulative effects of day-to-day stressful stimuli affect the way people behave.

This program teaches safety professionals how to:
•Develop stress immunity and resilience
•Become flexible in problem solving
•Give mind and body the “Right Fuel”
•Learn to deal with the stress of the high tech, low touch new millennium
•Develop positive ways to respond to stressful stimuli in noisy, dangerous and chaotic environments
•Take back control of your emotions and thought processes
•Find new ways of relating to each stressful stimuli appropriately

Participants in this fast-paced Too Stressed to Progress training program gain important insights into how stress in one area impacts others, how coping resources in one area impacts another, how coping resources in one area can be used to decrease stress in others, and how stress, coping resources, and overall satisfaction are closely-related.

Think Progress Leadership™ NOT Change Management

To Change Is Human; to Progress, Divine.

The business term change management has been around for a good long while.  The term relates to “initiating significant change” within an organization’s processes.  This change can include anything from altering work culture to embracing diversity to modifying an individual’s work tasks to increasing company morale and loyalty.  The problem with the term “change management” is that no one really desires to change or plans to change.  We desire and plan to progress.

It takes more than the title of supervisor, manager, or “change agent” to lead people in the direction of progress. Employees and team members (especially millennials)  do not want managers to manage their change.  They want leaders to lead their progress.  Let’s call “initiating significant change” what it truly is (or should be): Progress Leadership™.

In a time of continual transformation, committed leaders should focus on inspiring the progress, not apologizing for the change.  Committed leaders don’t just TELL people what to do.  Committed leaders include others in the progress as well as the process.

It is reasons that shape, nourish, and sustain the thoughts that create the actions necessary to reach desired results. Moving our focus from change management to PROGRESS Leadership™ creates a shift in power from wielding power over employees to creating power among employees.  Committed leaders thus create a work culture in which empowered employees are committed to finding what is truly the next step forward.

In Dean’s presentation he will share his thoughts on progress and change and discuss the Six Ps Progress that empower caring leaders to Think, Work and LIVE Progress Leadership NOT Change Management.

Change is inevitable.  Progress is a choice.

Testimonial:

“Dean Lindsay’s ‘Progress Leadership’ program is extremely insightful and thought provoking, truly a must see!

I would encourage all committed leaders – what Dean calls Progress Agents – to adopt the concepts he shares in this

refreshingly helpful and wildly entertaining presentation. PS… can’t wait to read the book!”
