Other Winning Speaking Topics...
Sales Strategy: Why Aren’t You Winning More Business?
If you are in sales, you are perpetually in a state of war. In sales, just as in war, there can be only one winner, and today’s conqueror can quickly become tomorrow’s vanquished. The deciding difference is strategy. Strategy is the most critical component of sales wisdom. This workshop will focus on the right sales strategies to make sure you are victorious.
Why Business Partnerships Are Messy and What to Do About It
A partnership (2 or more people) always starts out with the best intentions, highest hopes, and biggest dreams of how the company or firm will outshine the competition. But soon, reality sinks in and many details that should have been worked out up front come to the surface and slowly start to erode the business, the team and the partnership itself. This workshop will lay out all the necessary steps partners need to take in order to run an efficient and effective business. Coach Ellie has her own proven model that covers all the bases: from getting the partners successfully aligned to making the business more profitable.

Fund Raising Made Easy
Many Nonprofits fail to meet their fundraising goals. Why? Because they go about the process all wrong. This fast paced workshop will reveal a proven way to meet your fundraising goals and engage everyone on your Board of Directors. Coach Ellie will address every step that needs to be taken to meet your goals and get buy in and action from your Board.
Improving Your Own Motivation
Most workshops on motivation focus on getting you "psyched" for training or competition. But this type of external stimuli ‘cheerleading’ will not really motivate you. Motivation is actually a function of internal stimuli. You will learn the secret to how true peak performers are able to maintain high levels of motivation through thick and thin and how to incorporate winning, proven motivational techniques into your life.
Get More Trust in Your Work Place
How can trust improve company profits? What does the trust worthy leader look like? What does his scoreboard look like? How can trust be built faster in a workplace?

This workshop also examines your mindset, or attitude, around sales, the different kinds of salespeople, and the use of scripts to train others.
The Landmines of Business Growth
Many businesses that falter or fail can trace their problem back to how they handled growth. Many wise questions should be asked before growing. How do I know when I should grow my business?

Coach Ellie can provide these answers.

This workshop will focus on the most common shortcomings of the majority of teams. These include:
- Absence of Trust — unwilling to be vulnerable within the group.

- Avoidance of Accountability — ducking the responsibility to call peers on counterproductive behavior which sets low standards.
- Inattention to Results — focusing on personal success, status, and ego before team success.
H.O.T. Hire, Orient, Train
Bringing in new team members doesn’t have to be painful. In fact, if it’s done well, it can profitably impact your business quickly.
