    Laser-Focused Selling Selling Skills for a Distracting World 

    The smartphone has allowed most sales professionals to do business anywhere at any time. Yet it can also be the number one obstacle to sales success: from the time-consuming task of personal daily text messages to distraction-causing social media apps that masquerade as prospecting tools. 

    Today it’s much tougher to get the customer’s attention, and sales success depends more on the focus of time and activity than schmoozing over long lunches and golf outings. 

     Learning Outcomes: 

    • Double your daily revenue-generating activities by applying the Sales Time System 
    • Increase your closing ratio by implementing The Sales Planner: A daily process of discovering your 80/20 sales activities 
    • Stop wasting time chasing dead-end deals 
    • Gain greater impact by strategically planning your week 
    • Overcome call reluctancy by strategic prospecting

    Better Thinking vs. More Effort

    Audience: General Managers, Branch Managers, Outside Sales Professionals, Department and Product Managers 

    A never-ending cycle. Always chasing for more time. Watching the clock. Feeling “burnt out” from the pressures of unrealistic deadlines.

    The continual need to meet deadlines and achieve greatness is a battle that we all struggle with endlessly every day.

    Rated in the top 1% among time management trainers, Eric Papp delivers a unique keynote that provides innovative and practical strategies to escape the pressure of time. Starting with the notion to divide daily priorities, this session helps listeners understand that setting up filters and engaging in hard thinking will free them from time constraints.

    Daily confidence is strongly correlated with progress. Eric teaches that when hundreds of things are trying to be moved an inch, people leave feeling defeated. Instead, he encourages participants to focus on a few things at a time, which results in more overall progress. Utilizing compelling real-life stories, Eric excites listeners with his proven methods and strategies to achieve more by doing less.

    Give Eric a listen in The Power of Maximizing Time And Escaping Its Pressure, and you’ll feel more confident in the goals you set. Time pressure will no longer take up precious mental space. It’s time to take back control of your personal and professional life by planning and prioritizing the easy way.

    Key Aspects of Effective Time Management Strategy:

    · The 80/20 method used across every discipline and industry

    · Weekly Strategy Sheet

    · Overcoming the Fallacy of Doing

    · How to win 3x a day to help sustain confidence, motivation, and momentum

    Building A High-Performance Team

    Audience: General Managers, Branch Managers, Outside Sales Professionals, Department and Product Managers 

    Everyone works to succeed together, not alone.

    When a team fails to collaborate and communicate, nothing gets done right. 10 people working competitively is just 10 people. But fostering a collaborative culture amongst the same 10 people leads to more productivity and better results; it leads to a team of 10.

    In this rallying and thought-provoking keynote, Eric Papp – a specialist who trains and mentors hundreds of the smartest managers in America — brings his audience on an inspirational journey through teamwork and collaboration.

    The session addresses the true nature of the team, why teams are even needed, how to trust coworkers, and overcoming the urge to compete. Eric unpacks the complicated dynamics behind these behaviors and educates listeners to build trust and take on healthy conflict without fear.

    Drawing on his experience working with many professional greats, Eric gives your employees the tools to remove the “I’ll just do it myself” mindset. Instead, he puts in place the idea that everyone brings something strong and unique to each team.

    Turn Conflict into Collaboration:

    · Identifying signs of conflict and competitiveness

    · Learn the 4 ways of distilling trust into your team

    · Invoking trust and catharsis through healthy office conflicts

    · Building teamwork through self-awareness and emotional intelligence

    Values-Based Leadership

    Audience: General Managers, Branch Managers, Outside Sales Professionals, Department and Product Managers 


    It’s no secret; award-winning teams always have a world-class leader.

    Leaders are driving forces that take charge during hard choices and guide people toward success. However, demands continuously shift, and the endless need for decision-making can send even the most seasoned leaders into a panic.

    Eric Papp — author of a best-selling book and an authority on leadership — leads this dynamic keynote to instill confidence and direction into his listeners.

    Managers can learn the proven values from Eric’s 3 Values Of Being An Effective Person: Establishing The Foundation For Personal And Organizational Leadership. Speaking directly to the person or people your teams rely on, Rock Solid Leadership opens with the challenge to define even the most discreet behavioral standards in the workplace.

    Success comes from the foundation you build upon. Eric’s work is focused on tapping into management’s core beliefs – the ones that can lead managers to feel like babysitters and micro-managers instead of leaders. Moving away from the habit of replacing “That’s not my responsibility” with “I’ll make it happen,” Eric seeks to help your leaders find confidence and direction.

    When leadership behaviors are modeled from the top, employees start to take ownership. With Eric’s guidance, every leader will leave feeling optimistic about taking accountability for their team’s operations.

    Let’s Get to Work:

    · Defining the 3 Foundational Values of Effectiveness

    · Creating a self-managing team

    · Healthy conflict vs. unhealthy conflict

    · How to have effective coaching conversations

    Leading the Uncertainty of Change

    Audience: General Managers, Branch Managers, Outside Sales Professionals, Department and Product Managers 

    Change in the workplace can be one of the most unsettling, overwhelming matters to cope with. Throw in the inevitable new advances in tech or office software standards, and everything starts to get a bit turbulent. As the world adapts to the new digital age, it places more demand on industries and its workers.

    Eric Papp — a leader in effective workforces — delivers an inspiring keynote developed to encourage companies and their employees to face technology head-on. The session embraces uncertainty, addresses the negative emotions commonly experienced in a changing work environment, and shows listeners how to manage these emotions and reach higher levels of confidence. 

    Eric stresses the importance of using open lines of communication to alleviate concerns and fear of change. His methods are proven to help employees breathe a sigh of relief when facing new technological implementations – offering the key to optimal comfort in a changing work environment and ensuring employee success.

    Providing your workforce with the tools they need to feel confident, Eric’s sessions leave audiences with an “I got this” attitude, as well as a model to help them embrace and accelerate through change.
