Make extraordinary sales happen! 

In the Age of the Customer, sales effectiveness depends mightily on the buyer experience. Despite nearly-universal agreement on the need for creating value in every step of the buyer’s journey, sellers continue to struggle with how to create that value and connect meaningfully with buyers. New research bridges the gap and reveals the behavioral blueprint for sellers that makes buyers more likely to meet with them — and more likely to buy from them.

In Stop Selling & Start Leading, you’ll discover that the very same behaviors that make leaders more effective also work to make sellers more effective, too. This critical shift in the selling mindset, and in the sales role itself, is the key to boosting your overall sales effectiveness.

What's the secret to sales success? If you're like most business leaders, you'd say it's fundamentally about relationships and you'd be wrong. The best salespeople don't just build relationships with customers. They challenge them. Matthew Dixon, Brent Adamson and their colleagues at Corporate Executive Board have studied what determines the performance of thousands of sales reps worldwide and what they discovered may be the biggest shock to conventional sales wisdom in decades. 'The Challenger Sale' argues that classic relationship building is a losing approach. Every sales rep in the world falls into one of five distinct profiles and while all of these types of reps can deliver average sales performance, only one the Challenger delivers consistently high performance. Instead of bludgeoning customers with facts and features, Challengers approach customers with insights about how they can save or make money. They tailor their message to the customer's specific needs. They are assertive, pushing back when necessary and taking control of the sale. The things that make Challengers unique are teachable to the average sales rep. Once you understand how to identify Challengers, you can model their approach and embed it throughout your sales force. The authors explain how almost any average rep, equipped with the right tools, can drive higher levels of customer loyalty and ultimately, greater growth.

Most salespeople and sales leaders who marvel at the consistent year in and year out performance of sales superstars are blind to the real reason for their success. Unwilling to accept that the foundational root of all success in sales is a fanatical focus on prospecting, they waste time tilting at windmills on their quixotic pursuit of fads, silver bullets and secret formulas they believe will deliver them into arms of success with little effort. Superstars are aware that failure in sales is not caused by a deficit of talent, skills or training. Not a poor territory or inferior product. Not sub-par communication and presentation skills.
