Program Information

We assume that salespeople are primarily motivated by money. We couldn’t be more wrong.

  • Identify how to use NSP to increase your win rate and get customers engaged

How to Use Purpose to be More Persuasive and Influential at Work 

We’ve all been there: You present a great idea, it gets rejected, yet two months later someone else presents the same idea and it’s enthusiastically approved.
