Stop Self-sabotaging and Start Supercharging Your Business Development

We have human brains that tell us that business development is hard. We blame the market, research industry dynamics, the decision makers who aren’t calling us back or even our kids! When you’re busy, everything is fine, right? You get into the flow of a project and love your work. But when you’re not busy, you’re worrying about generating the next lead and avoiding the dreaded business development you know you should be doing. Rather than making time to act …you wait…and hope. What if you could re-imagine business development and make it less stressful? In this session you’ll be taught how to stop self-sabotaging and start supercharging your business development efforts now!
In this workshop-style session, you will:

  • Learn to identify and intercept the 9 self-sabotaging tendencies that block your business development efforts
  • Discover 5 strategies for conquering your obstacles so you can make your business development easier, faster, and less stressful
  • Develop a fast-action plan for approaching your business development efforts more positively and proactively
