“Creating High-Performance Sales Teams”

with Jim Keenan & Mike Weinberg


In Week 3 of our 4-part series, #BizLockerRadio welcomes Jim Keenan and Mike Weinberg into the Business LockerRoom to talk about creating high-performance sales teams! Both of these guys are genuine superstars, high-achievers, and world-class platform speakers.

Jim Keenan is CEO/President and Chief Antagonizer of A Sales Guy, Inc. He’s been selling something to someone for his entire life, and has been deliberate in absorbing the critical elements of sales team development in his 20-plus year professional sales career. He’s learned what it takes to build killer, highly productive sales teams, and he has also learned how to create sales strategies that increase the probability of success.

Mike Weinberg is on a mission to simplify sales. He’s convinced that those who tell us sales is complicated are either confused themselves or using complexity as a smokescreen to hide their lame efforts and poor results. His first book, New Sales. Simplified: The Essential Handbook for Prospecting and New Business Development, was published by AMACOM and became a #1 Amazon Best-Seller, spending an entire year as the #1 Top-Rated book in its category. Mike consults with senior executives, coach sales leaders, sales teams and individuals charged with acquiring new business.


Jim KeenanAbout Jim Keenan: Keenan has been influencing, learning from and shaping the world of sales for a long time. Finder of the “elephant in the room,” Keenan calls it as he sees it and let’s nothing or no one go unnoticed. He knows that micro-management and command-and-control sales managers kill high-performance salespeople DEAD. Keenan also owns “A Sales Guy Recruiting,” which creates a unique approach to mapping client goals and objectives to the capabilities of the candidates, thereby ensuring they can actually do what clients need them to do. Named one of the Top 50 Sales and Marketing Influencers for 2012, he’s been cited in The Harvard Business Review and SoldLab Magazine, and his blog was named as one of the top 50 blogs by Top Sales World. He is also listed in Guy Kawasaki’s AllTop Blogs.

Mike WeinbergAbout Mike Weinberg: Mike was the top-producing salesperson in three different companies, spent five years consulting and five years leading sales organizations, before finally launching his company, New Sales Coach, in late 2010.  He is blunt and calls it like he sees it, and he takes his clients’ business personally, acting like his own livelihood depends on their success. Forbes and KiteDesk named Mike a Top 30 Social Sales Influencer in 2014, and for three consecutive years OpenView Labs listed him as a Top 25 B2B Sales Influencer. The really good news is that Mike will announce the title and content of his brand new book on #BizLockerRadio this week!
