Accelerated business growth consultant Hanan presents his formula for achieving sales success. Known as "consultative selling," this approach is based upon the repositioning of the salesman as a consultant, who helps his clients to be more competitive in business.
"For more than two decades, Consultative Selling™ has enabled sales professionals around the world to achieve unprecedented success by helping their clients make more profitable business decisions. The Seventh Edition gives you the tools to continue bringing superior results to 21st Century organizations—and take your own career to a new level.
Packed with strategic sales techniques, a step-by-step implementation guide, and case studies of companies--including IBM, Hewlett-Packard, American Airlines, and Motorola--Consultative Selling™ shows you how to develop long-term, continuing relationships with customer operating buyers, instead of just vending to purchasers.
