How to Be Great at the Stuff You Hate

We all have to do it now, whether we’re lawyers, accountants or start-ups. But don’t despair — there’s no need to go on some cringey sales training day.

Selling isn’t something you ‘do’ to people, it’s not some dark art practiced by pushy and manipulative people — it’s a process, it’s a relationship…it’s fun! All you need to do is cut the crap, be yourself and win some business.

The Secret Language of Influence
Great selling is invisible. Influence occurs at a level just below the buyer’s awareness. That’s important because today’s buyer is savvy and all too familiar with traditional selling techniques. However, a few simple words-the right words-can transform an awkward sales call into a comfortable conversation and a resistant prospect into a happy customer. Some people, for example, want to hear about the money they’ll save, while others respond to the pain they’ll avoid. By identifying different ways buyers are motivated, salespeople can quickly customize their conversations and lead prospects to “yes.”
The Ultimate Guide to Sales Training
Covering a wide range of topics, The Ultimate Guide to Sales Training shows how to develop a selling system, prospect effectively, and qualify and disqualify prospects. The book also covers information on using power questioning techniques, handling objections, and includes solution selling guidelines and ideas for creating and delivering potent presentation practices.
The Cult of the Leader
Modern business is obsessed with leaders. We talk about leadership all the time, but its real meaning is becoming more and more obscure. Recent corporate crises have shown that all too often, our leaders are missing in action when we need them most.
We have become experts at sending information–via email, text message, Internet, TV, and other forms of media, communicating, but not engaging, in an active dialogue defined by collaborative thinking. In Dialogue Gap, Nixon explores this growing disconnect and its significance in an increasingly globalized world where the ability to engage with others–in order to address issues like climate change, cultural differences, etc.–has become essential.
The Art of the Long View
What increasingly affects all of us, whether professional planners or individuals preparing for a better future, is not the tangibles of life–bottom-line numbers, for instance–but the intangibles: our hopes and fears, our beliefs and dreams. Only stories–scenarios–and our ability to visualize different kinds of futures adequately capture these intangibles. In The Art of the Long View, now with the addition of an all-new User’s Guide, Peter Schwartz outlines the “scenaric” approach, giving you the tools for developing a strategic vision within your business.
