  • June 16, 2020
    8:30 am - 9:30 am

Chris McDonellInfluence is defined as the capacity to have an effect on the character, development or behavior of someone or something.  Every day you are influencing and being influenced by those around you. Friends, family, colleagues, employees, clients and strategic partners all make up a network where you play a dynamic role. Often, you’re not even aware of the impact of your own influence.

To master influence, you must start with yourself and your emotional state, especially during these challenging times. During this workshop, we will take a deep dive into the ways that our thoughts may limit our performance, and work through seven questions designed to make us more productive and influential in all phases of our lives. We will also examine the core tenants of long-term bonding and rapport, effective (virtual) communication, and buying strategies in order to set clients (internal and external) at ease and make you more relatable.

Chris McDonell is President of McDonell Consulting Group, a licensed Sandler Training center based in Baltimore. McDonell, who has more than 25 years of experience in sales and executive leadership, has worked throughout the U.S. for leading financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and The Associates. McDonell has been with Sandler Training since 2008 and has formed long-term partnerships with small and large companies.

Professional Development Workshop Series with Chris McDonell: How to Get and Stay Focused


  • October 8, 2020
    8:00 am - 9:30 am

Chris McDonellMost everyone deals with the internal question: Why is it that I have so little time to do all of the things that I want to do?

We are all aware that time is a finite, non-renewable resource which must be carefully managed. Yet, having the personal conviction to take ownership of our own time can be extremely difficult. Often, people devalue their own time while prioritizing everyone else’s.  Many individuals in the workplace develop “head trash” around time management — throwing their hands up in the air, claiming there is no use in being proactive.

This workshop is designed to energize attendees to focus more intently on their individual time management behaviors in order to get more out of each day. We will ask all attendees to come prepared to take a closer look at how they have spent their time in recent weeks and learn from those experiences.
