Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Any author who presents a dedication that reads “may you live an abundant life” is clearly someone to listen to. Multibook author (Snap Selling, 2010, and others), speaker, and sales consultant Konrath addresses a subject that impacts everyone in business. Hers is commonsense advice, made much more valuable through real-life stories and highly simplified procedures. Her premise is that continual learning differentiates an individual and leads to success, which she substantiates in each of the 63 chapters. Instead of setting specific revenue-generating goals, for instance, concentrate on getting better. Segment your focus by looking at the big picture and priorities. To uncover why a prospect isn’t buying, research all aspects of the “why buy” to articulate the business case. Consider developing cheat sheets on your top prospects to best remember their issues and industries. Chapters are short, conversational, and summarized in one sentence. Examples punctuate her points, whether it’s her personal admission about something or other or a concept held by someone else (for instance, the 90-day plan and Charles Duhigg’s The Power of Habit, 2012). --Barbara Jacobs

Agile Selling is a great new resource for sales people and for sales leadership. As a sales leader in both F500 and mid-market companies, responsible for teams ranging from a couple people to over a 1,000, I wish I had this book 10 years ago!

Sales leaders are a practical people and prefer practical advice. Agile Selling is a resource that helps us create immediate value and support for our most competitive asset - our sales team. Learning what’s most important quickly helps position us to win faster. While it is always about creating and delivering compelling value, time is of the essence. The learning strategies and framework in the book are easy and can be used today.

In addition to learning faster, the need for sales development and continually refreshing sales habits is critical to achieving sustainable, high performance. The success habits chapters give practical counsel and tools. Coaching, supporting and ensuring great habits are being exercised daily help everyone on the team win.

My favorite part of the book is about an agile sales mindset. Jill gives us a way to support a sales rep with their goals, their progress, how they process a problem or overcome a deal set back. Deal coaching is an art in of it self, but it begins and ends with expanding the conversation to solve, imagining possibilities and creating forward progress.

I highly recommend this book to sales leaders looking for ways to help their teams sell more, faster. Great book, thanks Jill!

I'm not happy that I have to give this book 2-stars because I am a big Jill Konrath fan...but I am reviewing the book, however and not the person.
Her first two books were beautiful reads. They were insightful, helpful and they provided great information and tactics.
Agile Selling to my disappointed seemed elementary. It seemed as it was a book written to fill pages of common sense knowledge.
For example: It attempts to teach you how to memorize information (writing on index cards). How is that innovative or new information? Most professionals, I believe whether in high school, college or the business world don't need to be reminded how to use index cards.
If you've read other sales books or Jill's past two books this book serves as a complete redundancy. It's basic knowledge anyone should know and provides little new, refreshing ideas.

I’ve said it before: I’ve read a ton of sales books, including Jill’s two previous ones. I love to read sales books; I always walk away with something new. This time I walked away with a LOT new, especially in the areas of learning and adapting. Why should you read this book? Because it’s one of the best, most comprehensive sales books you’ll ever read. You’ll come away from "Agile Selling" with a whole new attitude about the learning process, to say nothing about receiving a set of skills to accomplish that learning. Ditto for adapting to the changes constantly taking place in the sales world. This book takes common sense to an art form.

You’ll also get a perspective about how your prospects/customers view you. It’s going to shock you, because, trust me, it isn’t pretty. More importantly, Jill is going to teach you how to turn that unhappy phenomenon around to your benefit.

After I read the book, I went back and read all the Amazon reviews and was astonished to see that one reviewer had listed a number of questions from the book that I, too, had marked off from a particular chapter. A coincidence? I don’t think so. Make note of these questions, they’re vitally important! Here they are, along with a few others I marked off:

1. What are the most challenging parts of the decision process?

2. How do you determine if a product or service makes good business sense for your company?

3. What piques your curiosity and gets you to even consider a change?

4. What does it take to get a contract for something like this approved?

5. How do you decide which resource is best for you?

6. Who are the people who need to be involved in a decision like this?

Agile Selling is one of those books hat should be digested and not just read.
The ideas for being a consistent sales winner come at you fast and furious in Jill's short chapters.

She makes a point, supports it with a story and provides actionable tips to implement.

The Agile Mindset that begins the book was powerful and builds the case for our need to be agile in mind, spirit, and action!

Some of the specific topics that I believe every salesperson, leader, and heck, even my family would benefit from include:
- How to learn new information quickly. Yes, she found practical actions for us all to learn better
- Success Habits in Part 5 outlines very specific ways to be successful today and for the long-run.

I suggest that anyone with a team that needs to stay on top of their game use this book to help their people be agile. Take one idea a week and use it as a discussion starter in your meetings. Challenge each other and celebrate your agility.

Every word in the book is timely and relevant - what more can you ask for?
