      "How to Overcome Your Fear of Sales
    & Get More Clients NOW!"
     
        Mandy Schumaker
    Higher Performing People


    • Are you nervous about being seen as salesy and pushy when you're talking to a customer?
    • Have you been trying all the latest and greatest ideas to attract more customers, but it's just not working?
    • Do you start squirming or even stuttering when you move into talking about your pricing or details about your services?
    • Do you ever wish sales could be natural, fun, and enjoyable?
    • Do you feel like you are working too hard for the results you're seeing?

    If this describes how you feel about sales, then this presentation is for you! Many years ago, when I started out in newspaper advertising sales, these were the exact issues with which I was faced. But in a few short months, I went from being the lowest sales producer to consistently being the top producer week after week. Now, in my own coaching business, I'm able to apply the same skills and principles to keep my pipeline filled with fabulous ideal clients!

    Now you can discover how to overcome your fear of sales and start building the kind of business you deserve -- without struggling and feeling like you're the "pushy sales type."

    Mandy Schumaker is the founder of Higher Performing People -- a company devoted to helping self-employed professionals and small businesses get more clients, grow their businesses, and make more money faster than they would on their own. She gives her clients a practical, step-by-step formula that makes it easy for them to create a clear and concise plan of action, get over their fear of sales and marketing, and break free from the issues that can keep them stuck, confused, and overwhelmed. Mandy spent over twenty years as an advertising marketing executive in the newspaper industry and has the gift of helping people reach their full potentials in both their businesses and their lives. She holds a BS in Journalism from Indiana University and is a certified coach through Coach, Inc. She resides in Yarmouth with her husband Ted O'Meara and their two sons.

      "Having Difficult Conversations!" 
        Amey Leadley

    The truth is that many of us avoid having difficult conversations even though they may be important and necessary. However, there is little security in staying in our comfort zones. Being willing to embrace the discomfort is increasingly crucial to your success both personally and professionally.

    If you are able to cultivate the courage to have the difficult conversations and develop the skills to conduct them effectively, not only will you be a more successful leader, but you will earn the respect of others, while enabling you to carry out the goals of your team and organization. Through increased self-awareness about our natural responses to conflict or tension, we can assess the strategies and approaches that are most appropriate and effective in different situations.

    In this workshop, Amey will help you approach difficult conversations with respect, candor, and compassion through:
    • Getting comfortable with discomfort -- the value of conflict and tension
    • An overview of strategies for managing conflict constructively
    • Recognizing that listening is your most important tool.


    Amey Leadley is a PHR-certified, seasoned human resources  professional who is passionate about collaborative, vibrant, and successful work environments. She has worked in a variety of settings and industries, from small Maine companies to large global corporations as an HR generalist with expertise in training, leadership and organizational development, and group facilitation.

    Amey earned a B.A. in psychology from Colby College and a M.Ed.from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, focusing on adult and organizational learning and development. She is certified as a Workforce Development Consultant from the State of Maine Department of Labor. Amey is also an active volunteer in her local community and currently serves on the board of Maine Youth Leadership.
