Summary

‘Change’ is a word that evokes a range of responses, many of them negative. Choice in this context can become a ‘choice’ between the frying pan and the fire! Simply, if you have to go on about how much of an opportunity change is, or how much choice you really do have, then the average listener’s mind will have already started to cloud with cynicism and thoughts like, “I am being duped!” 
 
‘Change’ and ‘choice’ have differing implications depending on the context. Change can either be an exciting prospect or the cause of dread. The degree to which these two extremes and everything in between are experienced is directly dependent on the amount of choice we feel we truly have. 
 
Mindfulness is the mental discipline to ‘stay in the now’ and become freer from that which we crave as well as from things we are attached to. When Mindfulness is practised it can affect the way in which an individual approaches change, and increase the range of choices that can be discovered within every apparent no-choice situation.
 
Writing in a conversational style, Philip uses a mix of analogies, real life stories and change management case histories to examine our psychological response to change and choice. One case history explains how the author applied his change techniques to the development team of VIAGRA, bringing the drug to market ahead of schedule.
 
The book explores the practical application of Mindfulness and the radical leadership required to deliver sustained change in our lives, be it within our families or workplace.
 
Simply, how do we discern mindful changes to embrace, from changes to resist? And how do we absorb change so that the new becomes the new norm?

    A twenty-first–century sales philosophy that “gets straight to the point about what works, and what doesn’t work in today’s marketplace” (Kevin Kruse, New York Times-bestselling author of 15 SecretsSuccessful People Know About Time Management, Founder and CEO of LeadX). 
     
    Being successful at sales has nothing to do with “selling.” The best salespeople are the ones who are always curious—not always closing. Succeed Without Selling contains everything a small business owner or sales professional needs to know about what it takes to be successful. From prospecting to discovery to referrals and strategic alliances, it’s all covered. There are even chapters for sales managers, direct sellers, and service providers. 
     
    Succeed Without Selling also includes resources like sample scripts and proposal templates. Anyone who wants to grow their business will find actionable, easy-to-follow information to help them embrace the value of being more interested in others than in making the sale. Succeed Without Selling changes the way readers look at the sales process forever—and stops them from engaging in behaviors that just don’t work.
