Achieving your goals often depends on your team achieving their goals. But do you sometimes find them trying to dump their jobs in your lap? Yelling and screaming may make you feel better, but does it really work? This session explores strategies and tactics that have been proven to work better and are easier on you, too!

Mark Levy of RDR (Revenue Development Resources) has trained thousands of sellers and managers in the U.S. and abroad. Mark’s expertise is a result of his experience from 30+ years of selling and managing in the media industry.
