Lisa McLeod’s Speaking Topics

Selling with Noble Purpose: How to Drive Revenue and Do Work That Makes You Proud

We assume that salespeople are primarily motivated by money. We couldn’t be more wrong. Drawing from studies of top performing sales organizations, McLeod reveals why the salespeople who sell with Noble Purpose, those who earnestly and factually understand how they make a difference to their customers, outsell salespeople who are primarily focused on sales targets and money.

Using humorous stories and cutting edge research, McLeod shows you why a sense of purpose is the most powerful performance motivator and how to instill it in yourself and others.
