Cisco~ Area Vice President
"Nathan Jamail conducted a Sales Leadership training for 45 sales and engineering leaders. The
Sales Leadership training would be better described as a highly interactive engagement with a
continuous exchange of thought provoking ideas. Through entertaining and relevant dialogue,
Nathan challenged the leaders to evaluate their leadership approach in terms of expectations,
coaching/practice interactions, fostering a positive environment and continuously hiring and
cultivating great talent. Nathan was able to maintain engagement and participation throughout the 6
hour session through high energy, fast paced dialogue and interactive exercises. The training was
extremely valuable to the leadership team by creating a consistent set of leadership expectations,
introducing common terms and increasing leadership collaboration."
Vice President of Sales, State Farm
“During my career in sales leadership, I have come across a lot of material by book and/or internet
about running successful sales organizations. Nathan Jamail’s Sales Leaders Playbook/The Sales
Professional Playbook made me think about not only what kind of sales leader I have become, but
also how to continually “up your game” keeping the edge in a highly competitive business. Nathan’s
approach to running a successful sales organization focuses on the culture, practice and
accountability. It replaces the sometimes “academic answer” from many books and speakers to
experience, “hands on” approaches to creating winning sales teams.
I’ve heard Nathan speak at least a half dozen times to audiences. His passion around sales
leadership is off the charts! Nathan can speak the language of sales leadership because he has sold
just about everything under the sun. He has not only sold products and services, but he’s been
responsible for leading successful sales teams.
Nathan’s approach and material has transformed me as a sales leader. In my 20 years of sales
leadership, I feel that I’m on the” top of my game”. I refer to Nathan’s book, which is highlighted,
tabbed and dog-eared weekly to review a chapter refreshing my approach with my team. Nathan is a
favorite guest among my group and his leadership sales practices work!”
Agency Field Executive~ State Farm Insurance Companies
“Nathan understands sales! His delivery is direct, his process is simple and he is able to connect
with everyone at their level. That along with being very dynamic, motivated my team to levels we
have never seen. As a result, my team increased sales by 50% in the last quarter and we are on
target to have our best growth year ever. Thanks Nathan, we look forward to working with you in
First Savings Bank~ President/CEO
“Nathan is a high energy individual and it makes the message more believable when you can see
that this guy knows how to be successful. Nathan took a lot of time to learn about our organization
and tailor his remarks for our benefit. I would certainly recommend him to any group with new or
Being Grateful For The Ride vs. Being Bitter About The End
Friday, October 16, 2015
No matter how much we try as adults and professionals we still struggle with being just like kids or the kids we were 20 or 40 years ago. Many times as children, we forgot to be grateful for our parents doing things for us, that they probably didn’t want to do, such as taking us to an amusement park for 10 hours, instead we were were mad because they made us leave 15 minutes before closing. As a parent it makes me so mad when our little girls get upset because we can’t stay another day at Disneyland instead of being grateful that mom took them in the first place. I call that a mistaken sense of feeling. As adults and employees we too can fall into that trap. I like to think I am grateful for my 20 plus years working for Corporate America and the numerous opportunities it provided me versus being bitter about how some of my relationships and opportunities ended.

Three Ways to Approach Life
Monday, April 6, 2015
I talk to people everyday. As a matter of fact, I get paid to talk to people. Sometimes they don’t like what I have to say (if I am totally honest, most of the time they don’t), but after conversations settle in, they might actually hear what it is I am trying to tell them. At the heart of every conversation I have is this; how can one be more successful and happy? The answer lies within each person, and that is not just whimsical talk. It is about their perspective and their priorities.
Recently my wife and I were watching Shark Tank, and one of the Sharks said something very powerful, he said, “You can do something because you can do it. Or you can do something because you have to do it. OR you can do something because you get to do it”. Here is a question for you: If I asked you which of these three ‘descriptions’ describes how you feel about your job, which one would you select? Do you do a job because you can? Because you have the skill and are pretty good at it, so why not? Or do you do a job because you have no ‘choice’? Because you fell into it and now make a certain living that you ‘can’t’ go without? OR do you do something because it is exciting to you? Because, even though you don’t love everything about it, you are grateful and motivated by the overall aspect of what you get to do? Can you see which description will yield more results in your professional and personal life? What does it really look like when you are doing something because you get to do it?

Team Accountability: Harsh or Helpful?
Tuesday, February 3, 2015
Every turn of the calendar people make New Year’s resolutions. Every election politicians say that the government leaders need to be held accountable. And every year organizations tell their leaders, “We need to hold our people to their words and actions.” Yet—just like New Year’s resolutions—these scenarios for accountability fall drastically short, as the mirror of accountability is often blurry with ego.
This means that as leaders we see ourselves as actually holding our people accountable and feel that it’s the others that are failing or not following through. Many leaders have a case of accountability myopia—they see themselves as doing a sterling job, and the truth is they are most likely falling short of their own expectations.
So, how does a leader become better at holding their team members accountable? The answer is to first understand why doing so is so important, which can help with the painstaking process of implementing an accountability practice. In business—just like in life—if a person believes in the reasons for the fight, they will fight!

Don’t Be That Guy or That Girl!
Thursday, December 11, 2014
You can enjoy the party without being the party.
Have you had your company ‘Holiday’ party yet? It is that time of year for company parties and year-end sales events. Events that leaders spend lots of money and time planning with the intent to show their employees how much they appreciate their hard work as well as recognize their top performers.
Festivities aside, you can bet your bottom dollar many of them will ask that famous question the next morning, “Hey did you see that guy or girl last night at the company event?” That question can have many answers and some may sound like, “Oh yeah, everybody did when his drunk self got on the microphone and slurred profanity for everybody to hear. Did you happen to see that girl; she was so drunk she was saying all kinds of inappropriate things to her boss”.
Here is one thing I can guarantee-his or her boss remembers it and the boss’s boss remembers it and they are for sure talking about it, but it is not a funny story at the coffee station; no they are talking to HR or legal on how they are going to handle the situation. Great careers have been ended at company events by someone being that guy or that girl.
