Put a middle-aged, balding guy with glasses and a goatee in a Ninja Ultima blender with 20+ years of sales force transformation experience, a healthy dose of training and development, organization effectiveness, leadership development, process improvement and performance consulting expertise, then sprinkle in 3 step-kids, a cat, an unruly Dachshund, a patient wife, Internet research, social media, elliptical and resistance training, and a Venti Starbucks Americano with an extra shot, steamed soy milk and Truvia, and you get me.
I’ve got a deep passion for highly-customized sales training and sales performance systems that are based on solid performance lever analysis, supported by an aligned sales management team, and executed with discipline. I work for GE Capital doing sales training and performance improvement work. I’m also an ardent advocate for Socratic, solution-oriented, value-added, consultative selling practices, including selling with insights. We must continue to elevate the sales profession.
