Partnering with Craig and the Sales Engine team to launch sales coaching at LinkedIn was one of the best career decisions I’ve made. Craig cuts through all ambiguity to nail what matters most, and he structures his thinking in a way that all can understand – and more importantly, apply. He has dedicated his working career to the study of sales, and as a result, he both knows it deeply and models it brilliantly. Craig’s passion for the craft is my favorite part of working with him – he is a constant and brilliant storyteller, consistently customer-centric, an active listener, always present and checking in with the group, and a magnet. I learn so much from Craig every single time we interact, and I couldn’t recommend working with him more highly. He’ll absolutely transform your sales org, and you’ll have a ton of fun as it happens.


Christi Moot

Director of Sales Readiness, LMS, LinkedIn

While working to increase high potential senior leader effectiveness, we wanted a thoughtful, engaging, innovative approach that yielded behavior change straight away. What we got with Sales Engine as a design, development and delivery partner was all of that and more. Craig’s passion, expertise and network allowed us to introduce cutting edge research and practice while his team’s competence and speed allowed us to deliver a ten-month, three-module session to 25 VP’s creatively and flawlessly. Our executives told us it was the best executive education they’d ever received. You can’t beat that!

Associate Director, Human Resources

One of my biggest blunders was not hiring Sales Engine when I was first introduced to Craig. I waited and sales floundered. Since partnering with them, productivity of our account executives has trebled while their ramp has been halved. Highly recommended!


Dick Burke

CEO, Envoy Global

With a shift to all digital selling, Morningstar needed to arm our sellers with new winning insights and fresh perspectives. Craig Wortmann and the Sales Engine team worked closely with us to tailor inspirational and practical training that offered actionable next steps to help our sellers ‘up their game’.
