Support and Unlock the Full Potential of Your Sales Team

The mental health practices and ideas in this presentation are inspired by mindfulness-based therapeutic programs, emotional intelligence literature, neuroscience research, and concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy. The concepts are translated so that they can be understood by those with or without prior experience with those topics.
