  • The Leadership Secret: How authenticity and Being will skyrocket your results in record time.

    Hayden Humphrey, Uplifter + Leadership Coach, Hayden Humphrey Coaching

    Many Leaders today do not have the support they need. As a result, many Leaders operate in unconscious patterns - bouncing between fear, feelings, and automatic reactionary behaviors called fronts. The cost of this kind of Leadership is enormous. MORE >

    Leaders set the tone for the organization and are the largest influences of culture. When Leaders are unsupported, this trickles down to the rest of the organization, impacts team coherence, workplace morale, and employee effectiveness.

    But the good news is that this issue is transformable. By supporting Leaders in understanding 1) what makes excellent Leadership, 2) the gaps keeping them from excellence, and 3) the structures necessary to close these gaps, we can support Leaders in stepping into a new, more authentic version of themselves.

    Leadership from this place is empathetic, integrous, and incredibly powerful. Those who lead from this place of authenticity can expect a more engaged team, far better results, and a much happier workplace.

    This talk centers on the Unconscious Triangle - a simple framework for supporting Leaders in understanding who they are Being on a moment-to-moment basis. This awareness allows them to craft a new, more authentic vision for themselves as Leaders, and create external support structures that enable them to live into this vision over time.

    While this is especially helpful for Managers and Executives with established leadership positions, this conversation is also incredibly useful for individual contributors and those with leadership aspirations. A more comprehensive and authentic understanding of why we do the things we do enables us to have conversations about showing up in totally new and never-before-possible ways.

  • Togetherness: Achieving Sales and Marketing Alignment

    Jeff Davis, Sales and Marketing Alignment Expert, The Sales and Marketing Alignment Summit

    Aberdeen Group estimates that companies with poor sales and marketing alignment experience an annual 4% revenue decline. In today's B2B business environment sales and marketing can no longer operate in silos. We must find a way to create "Togetherness" and use the collective knowledge of each team to win. MORE >

    The goal of this presentation is to achieve making CEOs and other customer-facing executives think differently about how sales and marketing should interact. With increased scrutiny for marketing to prove ROI on their activities and it becoming increasingly hard for B2B salespeople to even get in front of customers, the old way of doing business is no longer an option. This presentation focuses on using evidence-based research and empirical knowledge to propose real-world strategies that work.

    The key objectives of the presentation are to:

    * Establish an understanding of the detrimental effects that occur by not aligning sales and marketing
    * Explore the key reasons why this relationship continues to be a challenge for most organizations
    * Examine strategies and tactics to promote cohesiveness between these two functions that will lead to improvements in achieving revenue targets.
