Today's sales methods demand an emphasis on a high-level, consultative partnering process. This approach calls for real dialogue with customers about the product or service solutions that best meet their needs. In this solid book, sales training expert Linda Richardson teaches salespeople how to stop being vexatious product promoters and become trusted colleagues instead. getAbstract recommends Richardson's practical "dialogue selling" approach and her superior knowledge about what works. Though the suggestions she sees as brand-new may strike you as classic sales wisdom, that's no reason not to pay attention. If you want to stop pitching and start partnering, listen up.
