Become Unstoppable in Sales

Achieving our goals is a remarkable feeling. The hard work that you put in has made you successful, but what does it take to continue to separate yourself from the competition?

Let’s face it, sales is an incredibly demanding field. Between managing your pipeline, keeping clients happy, and chasing quotas, there is an incredible pressure on your emotions and focus as you try to navigate the roller coaster of a given day.

That’s where emotional intelligence comes in.

Research shows that over 58% of your performance as a salesperson is directly related to your emotional intelligence and over 90% of top performers have a high emotional intelligence.

When salespeople leverage the power of emotional intelligence, it provides them with the ability to engage buyers in a more empathetic, amicable, and positive manner, which improves relationships and sales rather than creating tension or misunderstanding.

As an emotional intelligence expert and award-winning salesperson and sales coach, I have seen this raise the success and happiness levels of those I’ve consulted, as well as my own.

In this presentation, you and your team will learn the critical elements of emotional intelligence and how to increase your EQ and balance your energy more efficiently.

The result? You’ll provide better client service, close more sales, and stay resilient when things get tough.

This keynote is loaded with takeaways that you can implement right away, lessons from some icons in business, sports, and entertainment, and comedic stories of sales encounters that you will nod your head along to.

Leveraging Emotional Intelligence for Daily Success

Whether or not you realize it, your emotional intelligence (EQ) plays a critical role in your everyday life. From the moment you wake up until the moment you close your eyes at night, your EQ helps you make decisions that can make or break your day. While nearly 75% of people think they have a strong EQ, only about 15% actually do. In this energetic and entertaining presentation, Rich will dive into the core elements of emotional intelligence and how you can leverage them for personal and professional happiness. Through this discovery, he will arm you with the awareness of your EQ to help you succeed and grow every single day.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn the fundamental elements of emotional intelligence (EQ).
  • Discover how to identify your EQ strengths & weaknesses.
  • Identify strategies for managing your triggers.
  • Learn the professional & personal benefits of EQ.
  • Understand the impactful (and fun) changes you can make to improve your EQ.
Tune In

Emotional intelligence has proven to be one of the most critical habits to have for personal and professional success and happiness. The most effective way to enhance your EQ is to engage in regular habits that strengthen the communication between the rational mind and the emotional mind. This is also similar to the effect that music has on our mood, motivation, and emotions.

However, with only 15% of people possessing higher levels of emotional intelligence, most are not tuned in to themselves and need to turn up the volume.

Part keynote, part dance party, this presentation will entertain and empower your audience to understand their own emotional intelligence and how it impacts them every single day. Merging his experience in studying emotional intelligence with his two decades as a national touring DJ, Rich brings an experience like no other to your event. Combining live DJing and powerful takeaways, your audience will be dancing and singing while raising their own emotional intelligence.

As a bonus, he’ll even create a custom mixtape (the kids call them playlists) for your company!
