Human Centered Growth: Selling Value in the New Economy
Customer expectations and behavior are evolving faster than most sales organizations. B2B buyers considering a purchase now spend only 17% of that time actually meeting with potential suppliers and if comparing multiple suppliers, the amount of time spent with any one sales rep shrinks to 5%.
This reality requires a fundamental shift in go-to-market strategy and a radical evolution in seller skill and competency. Sales teams not only have to earn customer access from a position of expertise, but also use a new value-based, deeply customized approach to earn customer partnerships that can sustain growth into the future.
Ryan Estis is a former Fortune 500 CRO and sales transformation expert who teaches sales teams how to leverage this defining moment of transformation and change as a catalyst to create compelling differentiation in the customer decision journey to capture more market share.
Sellers will understand how to earn more customer access, position value over price, elevate customer confidence from a position of expertise, and drive decisions to close.
Inspired by compelling stories and actionable insights, each participant will leave acutely aware of how to humanize the sales process to build high trust/high value relationships that create partnerships for life.
Human Centered Leadership: Leading High-Performance Teams in a Forever Changed World
(Includes lessons from Prepare for Impact)
We have changed. Work has changed. And employee attitudes and expectations have changed. We are seeing the largest evolution in our relationship to work in the last century. Knowledge workers now expect their managers to be part of their support system and help them improve their employee experience as well as their life experience. But in a Gartner survey assessing the evolving role of management, only 47% of managers are prepared for this role.
Ryan Estis teaches leaders how to leverage this defining moment of change as a catalyst to improve performance and empower our people by embracing the principles of human-centered leadership.
Blending surprising truths with actionable insights and inspiring stories, Ryan guides leaders through an interactive experience that prepares them to lead agile, collaborative, digitally enabled teams equipped to thrive in this rapidly changing environment while delivering impact for all stakeholders (customers, employees, suppliers, investors, and communities).
Adapt & Thrive: Leverage Change and Transformation as a Catalyst for Growth
The need to lead change is growing, but our ability to do it is shrinking.
7 out of 10 CEO’s say their current growth strategy is obsolete and the World Economic Forum is indicating 1 in 4 jobs is going to change over the next five years as a result of trends like artificial intelligence, digitization, the green energy transition, and supply chain-reshoring creating unprecedented transformation.
Our job as leaders is to help our people and teams navigate the mindset shift and reskilling needed to embrace change and the new behaviors needed to thrive through it.
But 70% of change efforts fail and it isn’t because of the strategy…it’s people, psychology, and resistance.
Traditional models of change management and leadership no longer support what is needed in our forever changed world. The new model for navigating transformation and growth is Human Centered.
In this dynamic and interactive keynote presentation, Ryan teaches entrepreneurs and executives how to leverage this defining moment as a catalyst to improve performance and empower our people to unleash their full potential while finding meaning and fulfillment in their work. Blending surprising truths with actionable insights and inspiring stories, he empowers leadership teams to build change ready, high growth organizations.
