The Great Salesperson featuring The Doctor of Sales

“Doctors tell us what to do and we do it. Now that’s selling! One of the best role models for selling and influencing others is the medical profession. Doctors have a system that not only trains them, but reinforces their credibility. We believe they know the answers. That’s why we go to them. Learn their secrets and increase your income.”

Your clients need you now more than ever. But to best serve them, you need to step up and take a stand: never settle for “good enough”, be lofty about your contribution, build your practice for the right people and remember the lessons that will help you jump ahead of the curve. Be The Doctor of Sales®!

The New Face of a Leader

“The traditional sources of power have disappeared or diminished. Today’s leaders must re-evaluate their style and master new sources of influence. Lasting success will come to those leaders who inspire new ways of thinking, being and acting.”

In these times of fast history, people and problems are changing. That is why leadership must be transformed. Successful leaders must be willing to let go of what has worked in the past, open their systems and be pulled by the future. Alan ignites the spark that rekindles a leader’s excitement for finding new solutions and inspiring his or her team along a fresh and fulfilling path to the future.

This is Your Time

“Despite the challenges in the world – and to a considerable extent because of them – this is the time to renew and rededicate yourself to the important work. Look at a list of great US Presidents. Now there is a list of peace and prosperity Presidents, right? Wrong! Greatness requires something significant to push against. This Is Your Time.”

Challenges and adversity should be the launching pad for future success. When we have the perspective to see opportunities and the self-esteem to keep our attitude up, we can forge ahead with vigor, passion and resolve.

Thriving in Turbulent Times

“Thriving in turbulent times starts with an understanding that the problems we make are almost always worse than the problems we have. Our reaction to problems frequently creates more difficulty than the underlying problems themselves.”

To sustain and enhance success, organizations must be able to move quickly and find fresh solutions. Alan passionately communicates innovative insights and inspires people to get on with the task at hand.

Questions Great Financial Advisors Ask...

“Transactions are out. Advice is in. Great advisors know that it's the questions they ask not the presentations they make that achieve client success. Advisors who use their client’s success as their measure of achievement can realize a dramatic boost in money under management, a significant increase in their average account size and clients for life who eagerly refer others. Advisors have an extraordinary oppotunity to increase their income while helping their clients achieve their goals & dreams.”

 While just about everyone understands the shift intellectually, instincts remain mired in the old model. Financial professionals must do more than understand the change, they have to “get it” below their necks, in their hearts…straight down to their DNA.
