“For better or for worse, COVID has changed sales leadership. The approaching obsoleteness of old tactics and thinking has quickened. While we have inherently understood the importance of positivity, confidence, and supportiveness, we’ve underinvested in those areas, instead stressing skill building and top-down solutions.
This has never been more clear to me than after my first talk with Jeff Riseley.
His Sales Health Alliance provided insights to me and my sales team that helped reps and their leaders better understand how to live with the stress our chosen career is guaranteed to create and how to build resilience to use it as fuel for our success.”
VP Sales, Outreach
“Two months ago at our 6sense Field Kick Off we decided it was time to start addressing it with the team. We brought in Sales Health Alliance and Jeff Riseley to help lead the discussion.
Jeff Riseley was fantastic, and our teams were leaning in on each session over several weeks. He helped us think about ourselves as corporate athletes, and how to perform at our best by taking care of our minds. By recognizing that our mental health is typically the bigger culprit holding us back from our potential.
The lesson I learned… just start talking about it, and understand there are ways to help our team members navigate these challenges.”
SVP Sales, 6sense
“Jeff’s 5-week program is the gift that keeps on giving: rich content about the mental game for salespeople that resonated greatly with our entire Sales Team, and now a much healthier conversation and recognition of the need for strategies to maintain a resilient mindset moving forward!”
As one sales associate commented:
“I feel so valued as a PCC associate and a Sales team member because PCC is investing in this for us. I sincerely hope that this becomes a new norm for us – we will be able to move mountains together if it does.”
Sales Diversity & Committee Lead, PointClickCare
“Jeff served up real and tangible best practices to help us start to rethink the interplay between sales leader and team member when it comes to staying mentally fit in order to achieve peak performance.
Based on the early returns and feedback, he captivated our entire organization who all left wanting more on this important and timely topic. If anyone is looking to fill a speaker slot for an upcoming event, I would highly recommend Jeff!”
Director Of Sales Enablement, TELUS
“Just like so many other high performing competitive roles, sales people need training to manage their stress and mental health to stay in top shape. As revenue leaders we invest in skill development and make efforts to grow our team’s development on the craft of sales. Any world-class revenue organization looking to drive exponential growth in their business and people should also be investing in the tools and training that Sales Health Alliance provides to manage mental health”
Head Of Sales – North America, Shopify
“We had Jeff join our team for a conversation about Mental Health. If this isn’t something you are talking about with your teams, you should be. Just like objections in sales, not addressing it is the worst thing you can do and having Jeff join us really gave our team the environment to open up, test themselves, and learn some very practical, tactical strategies to help them deal with the challenges that a sales job presents to your mental health.
In the hours and days following, the amount of extremely real, vulnerable, and productive conversations I’ve had with members of my team are staggering, and we’ve been able to make some real progress. We are just getting started and have a long way to go, but if you are looking for a tipping point or a place to kick-off from I couldn’t recommend a session like this more. Our team is already asking for more and to have Jeff back again.”
Sales Manager, Jobber
“Jeff recently came into a team meeting to help start a conversation around the importance of mental health in a 1 hour training session. The conversation was extremely relevant and impactful, his message around the impact mental health has on our everyday was bang on. What this conversation really did was create trust amongst the team, that we are all facing our own unique challenges and are doing our best to cope.
Jeff provided a ton of great resources and expertise on the topic. It created a new sense of energy and inclusion on the team and I incredibly grateful to have paved the way for the team with Jeff’s help. The response from the team has been fantastic and I’m so happy we did this. Looking forward to continuing the conversation.”
Sr Manager, DELL Technologies
“My team had our first mental health training session with Jeff Riseley yesterday, a topic that hits close to home for me and that I value highly.
The conversation was insightful, challenging, and ultimately difficult as I had to confront ways in which I need to improve our systems and as a leader. The value of vulnerability couldn’t have been more clear. I left it with multiple action items and ideas on how to more effectively support a mentally healthy environment, in just 1 hour.
As sales professionals we need to keep the conversation about mental wellness going as clearly we have a lot to learn. For me and my team this training and investment is just the start.”
Sales Leader, Jobber
“Jeff has developed a program that perfectly illustrates the stressors sales professionals face on a regular basis that are often overlooked as “that’s just how sales works”. The content of his five week program was beneficial to all of my sales team members, ranging from new in sales this year to 20 years of experience in the industry. Not only was this great to bring awareness to my team but he provides practical tools that I am already seeing utilized. I would recommend this to any sales leader.”
Sr Director of Sales, Giatec
“Impactful session for Sales Managers who are looking to keep mental health at the top of mind for their teams. The session was helpful to understand the psychology of how reps internalize / perceive negative situations within their daily duties, and how quickly a good day can turn bad if we let these negative inputs impact our mindset.”
Director of Sales, Indeed
Jeff led a thoughtful session with our entire Sales team that helped us to have meaningful discussions about the importance of mental health in a Sales career. He introduced several important concepts that were immediately accessible by everyone involved. The team was engaged throughout, and we received a lot of positive feedback internally. Everyone agreed how important it is to keep mental health in mind and continue to support each other as we navigate COVID, working from home, and the ongoing pressures of selling in a high-growth environment.
Director of Sales, Loopio
“The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, especially the actionable pieces these reps can start doing right away. On the management side, this gave us a whole host of things to think about and discuss so we can approach our support and enablement in even better ways.”
Director of Training, Reveneer
“With Covid-19, Synapse recognized that our employees worked more and took less time off. In addition to launching “You Days”, a day where everyone at Synapse takes an entire day off together during a work week, we hired Jeff to lead a workshop on mental health. It fostered open collaboration and helped us break down the walls to have a healthier, happier work environment.”
CEO & Founder, Synapse
“The pandemic brought on many challenges for our sales team. The ability of not being able to see and connect with customers face to face has been a struggle. Jeff’s program immediately changed their perspective on sales and mental health. Today, the communication and support between team members is strong. I am so proud to see them applying new strategies day to day and taking the time to practice self-care. I am committed to continuing the process of strengthening our mental health thanks to Jeff’s program.”
CEO, Grant Brothers Sales
“This workshop was a great way to bring Mental Health awareness to the forefront. As salespeople, we often times are hyper focused on our sales targets that we forget to take a minute to reset. It’s important that salespeople understand the power of recharging, in order to further exceed your goals!“
Account Executive, Shopify
“Workshops like this are essential to ensure that Mental Health is kept top of mind by leaders and sales teams alike. Jeff does a great job at opening up the topic with flair and make us realize how managing our energy is really the key to being a top performer.”
Mid-Market Relationship Manager, LinkedIn
“I highly recommend Jeff’s session for all sales professionals and sales leaders. His work on mental health in the sales field is valuable information for everyone who is dealing with work stress in modern society. Jeff presented an articulate case for taking action to benefit our own mental health.”
Founder, Employee Experience Design
“Jeff is uncovering new ways to view mental health within the sales org. He is helping others to uncover the triggers that alter our moods on a daily basis and implement new techniques to counter the negative effects and in turn use that energy and emotion to increase productivity.”
Account Executive, Freshbooks
“Jeff’s workshop not only provided information on what is causing sales people to struggle with their mental Health but also provide excellent plans for coping and overcoming. I would highly recommend this workshop to all sales professionals whether they are struggling with mental health issues or not.”
Sales Director, XTalks
“The workshop today was engaging, well-executed and provided actionable insights I can take to my team immediately. This is a must attend for anyone in sales, especially those leading teams. If you’re a manager that wants to increase productivity, empathy and results, I don’t see any reason this wouldn’t be an extremely valuable 2 hours.”
“Jeff made the workshop very approachable and did a great job explaining the stressful aspects of sales that I think many sales reps overlook as distressing problems. I liked that Jeff provided easy, actionable tools to use and felt really prepared to take care of myself when I’m facing a lot of rejection or struggling to hit certain targets.”
Business Development Lead, Inkblot Therapy
“Jeff’s workshop was great. Lots of perfectly distilled content and actionable insights. As we look to scale out our team this year, I’ll keep Jeff in mind for when the time is right to ensure our team is setup for success.”
Director of Sales, The Streaming Network
“Jeff knocked this workshop out of the park. He kept this human and kept us engaged. Mental Health is hard, and needs to be talked about more. Workshops like this allow for attendees to return to their teams and have open table talks and put new processes in place to take better care of their own and their report’s mental health. “Happiness = success. Not the other way around.”
Solutions Development Manager, Dynamic Connections
“With his knowledge, clarity and experience Jeff Riselay is tackling one of the most important issues in our post-modern world of work. It is responsible, right and profitable to consider how mental health affects valued employees and ourselves as we try to get the most out of our time and lives, and Jeff provides useful strategies to shift in the direction of greater inner-ease and efficiency.”
