Talent Fit
Balancing the head with the heart for better hiring – this presentation encourages going well beyond the classic DISC or MBTI assessment, and creates a template for owners and hiring managers to develop a Talent Fit Profile for the position before ever interviewing candidates.

10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
SEN Executive Briefing: Jack Singer, President & CEO, Advising the Advisors

How to Win the INNER GAME of Superb Sales Success
Why do two elite athletes with the same talent level and experience perform differently in the big game? Why do sales professionals with the same talent level and experience perform differently when it’s time to close the big sale? The answer is that exceptional athletes and sales professionals have different mindsets from the rest of the pack. In this program, Jack will teach you the key elements for developing a winning mindset, using the same blueprint for success that he has taught to elite athletes and Olympic medal winners for the past 34 years.
