It'll take an hour of your time (okay, maybe two), but it may be the most fruitful hour (or two) you've ever spent.

"Selling Is Everyone's Business demonstrates very well the importance of not going at it alone in sales. The tools in this book will help any sales professional increase their effectiveness as a seller and as a sales coach. This step-by-step guide will help you develop a structured plan that will improve your skills and those of the teammates around you."
-Matt Darrah, Senior Vice President, North America Operations Enterprise Rent-A-Car

"I knew that I would enjoy Selling Is Everyone's Business. I saw how the authors work with sales leaders and knew they had 'street cred.' But the book surpassed my expectations. Anyone who sells for a living or coaches front-line salespeople must read this book."
-Tony Rutigliano, VP/Chief Learning Officer, Automatic Data Processing (ADP)

"I believe everyone wants to be led, regardless of ego, seniority, or expertise level. People are motivated to be led by passionate people. This coaching process gives potential leaders the prescription, tools, resources, and methodology for getting to that level of great, passionate leadership. If you don't change your behaviors after reading this book, then shame on you."

Editorial Reviews

Soundview Executive Book Summaries
Selling is more than business for sales professionals -- it's life or death, write Johnson and Shaivitz in Selling Is Everyone's Business: What It Takes to Create a Great Salesperson. They contend that to maximize sales opportunities, it's key to look beyond commissions and bonuses - tactics that can make sales staffs work harder, but are ultimately less effective than training. In this book, the authors distill their years of experience into quick-read strategies for sales leaders looking to take their teams to the next level.
