The questioning techniques to "Get to The Truth" are especially useful. They get really practical and give you examples of the Strong Answers, Weak Answers, and Adversarial Answers you might get from your prospect. And my favorite part is how they give you the subtext of the typical answers so that you can hear what your buyers are not saying aloud.
I really liked this book because it focuses on bringing value and getting actual results for the client, rather than just a sale. It aligns really well with my beliefs because I truly value honesty and would not be able to lie to get something sold. Sometimes sleazy salesman can get away with a sale, but in my opinion honesty and getting results are better in the long run for both parties. Rather than getting a sale in any way possible author focuses on FIT (Finding Impact Together), and making sure that your solution is the right solution for the customer.
This book has a lot of great advices on how you can work together with a customer to identify a problem worth solving. Also it goes deep about every step in the process of getting a sale and how to properly structure your message to the client so you can avoid the adversarial trap.
I would definitely read this book for the second time to refresh my memory, and look through it before I have a meeting with a potential client.
I found it also being enjoyable and quick to read.
The buyer angle was also helpful and I would have liked to see a bit more of that.
Overall highly recommended.
This books is a game changer. It gave me an entirely new paradigm to view the sales process--and ultimately made me a better consultant, speaker, and coach by helping me get deeper with clients about what they are facing, what they really want, and how we can work on the same side to get great value.
