It doesn't stand up to serious inspection

Coaching Salespeople into Sales Champions reminds me of those sales calls I get periodically in which the salesman proceeds to dominate the conversation but actually says almost nothing. Paying close attention, what is said tends not logically follow what was said before -- the sales technique of constantly changing the subject so that no one gives a hard look at what was just said. That's necessary in this case, because what was said doesn't stand up to a hard look. That's not to say that the book is all wrong. Most of it is perfectly reasonable, albeit not well reasoned. If you're in the choir, you may enjoy the preaching because you can fill in the holes and can enjoy being reminded of what you already think. But there are lots of empty words filling those holes, and even some downright clunkers, such as the anecdote where the author criticizes a senior manager who legitimately challenges his sales team's poorly thought-out group think and not even one member of the team had thought through the matter well enough to respond to the challenge. In this respect, this anecdote reflects the whole book: It doesn't stand up to serious inspection.

Excellent book to shake things up

What made the experience of listening to Coaching Salespeople into Sales Champions the most enjoyable?

People who are not open to making changes in their own way of doing things won't like this book. But the insights are true and very helpful.

What did you like best about this story?

Manage your sales peoples' energy. Not their time.And coaching has nothing to do with the coach (so true but so easy to forget) :)

Any additional comments?

I wish there was a companion book that had all the forms and stuff already to purchase.
