Mastering Selling Skills

Introduction Selling is a process that proceeds from devising into prospecting, encountering, and then closing. Questions that are related to these four stages must be catered to: · What technological tools must the salespeople be empowered with? · Should a salesperson interact more with existing customers or new customers? · What are the right questions that salespeople should use in addressing prospects? · What are the tactics or strategies to close the sale? After understanding all the critical elements in the selling process, one should have a deeper insight into the essentials of service, communication, and negotiation, without overlooking the importance of cultural and emotional intelligence. Service is all about consistency and catering to the needs of the customers. One of the major needs of the customer is the competitive price. What are the other major needs? What additional needs must be fulfilled for each service or business one is in? Tenacity is a major skill needed by both salespeople and customer service personnel. What are the other necessary skills? What is customer relationship management? Surely, we will answer all of this in a highly concise communicative style! Communication is all about listening, body language, proper usage, and skills of both e-mail and telephone operations, as well as presentation skills such as PowerPoint. This book has a section called “Helicopter View” that will concisely explain CRM sales and service as well as major useful shortcuts in PowerPoint. Communication must also be clear, concise, and complete. Based on this, this eBook is built! Negotiation is all about planning and anticipating. One must be well prepared to overcome impasses, know his or her reservation prices, master the major negotiation tactics, and counter them meticulously. This is not all! What happens if you have to sell something abroad? Do you have the necessary cultural intelligence? How much knowledge do you have of various cultures? What is your level of adaptation? And is that motivating enough to you? In addition to the cultural quotient, we will also cover the criticality of the emotional and adversity quotients. As you can see, selling requires a lot of skills. Yet if you attain them all as this eBook will guide you, it is guaranteed you can sell any good product or service!

Arguments and Arguing

Quintanilla, Kelly M. and Shawn T. Wahl, Business and Professional Communication: Keys for Workplace Excellence, 4th ed. (Thousand Oaks: Sage, 2020). 1 ENDNOTES Michael D. Watkins, “What Is Organizational Culture and Why Should We Care?

Arguments and Arguing

Arguing is a fundamental human activity; it is a process of making sense of the world and negotiating understandings with others. Arguing can be—and often is—healthy for both relationships and societies. The values of the community are shaped through people sharing their opinions, offering reasons in support of their beliefs, and deliberating. Hollihan and Baaske present techniques for effective analysis, logical reasoning, and socially constructive argumentation. They illustrate their discussions of theory and practice with multiple engaging examples. The book focuses on narrative—argument as a story backed by evidence to evaluate courses of action or to resolve conflicts. A chapter on visual argumentation highlights the power of visual elements in arguments. Effective arguing requires a sensitivity to the demands of different argumentative contexts. Readers will become familiar with the elements of argument essential for politics, the law, debate, business, and relationships. Narrative arguments are rational arguments. Learning about the narrative reasoning process helps us tell more convincing, credible, and compassionate stories—and to become better critics of the stories we hear.

Operationalizing Culturally Relevant Leadership Learning

This book is a practical resource designed to raise leadership educators understanding of culturally relevant leadership pedagogy for the purpose of creating inclusive learning spaces that are socially just for students. For leadership educators seeking personal and professional development to assist in building and enhancing their levels of cultural competence in leadership education, this book is a guide. The audience for the book ranges from new and entry-level leadership educator roles to senior scholars in leadership education. Operationalizing Culturally Relevant Leadership Learning, provides leadership educators with a substantive and comprehensive approach to the topic, offering personal narratives from leadership educators who have operationalized the model in their own personal and professional contexts. We believe that reframing leadership education with the culturally relevant leadership learning model, leadership educators will be able to integrate new insights into their own pedagogy and practice and move towards action. This book illustrates how leadership educators can shift the way they experience and facilitate leadership learning. By framing the operationalization of culturally relevant leadership learning, this book discusses the why, who, what, where, when, and how of developing culturally relevant and socially just leadership education. Readers of this text are encouraged to actively engage in the content through the questions each chapter pose and consider for themselves how culturally relevant leadership learning can be implemented in their own context. Endorsements for Operationalizing Culturally Relevant Leadership Learning: "What’s that you ask? What does Culturally Relevant Leadership Learning actually look like? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Operationalizing Culturally Relevant Leadership Learning utilizes narratives of seasoned and emerging leadership educators to construct clear examples of how to effectively operationalize the CRLL model is practice. Using this book will assist you in reimagining your leadership education offerings – guaranteed!" Vernon A. Wall, Director of Business Development – LeaderShape, Inc. and President: ACPA – College Student Educators International 2020 – 2021 "This deeper exploration of the culturally relevant leadership learning (CRLL) model guides leadership educators in reconstructing not only what and how we teach, but who needs be included and why. At the cusp of the next phase of leadership education, this book is an invitation to deeply explore CRLL and its place in changing the direction of how we define, teach, practice, and embody leadership." Christie Navarro, Director, Center for Leadership Learning, Office of Undergraduate Education, University of California, Davis "Operationalizing Culturally Relevant Leadership Learning is a beautiful and timely roadmap for integrating critical perspectives and social justice into leadership learning. Beatty and Guthrie accomplish what has alluded so many others: they capture the complexity of the abstract with the pragmatism of the how. Narratives bring to life content in new and powerful ways that showcase not just why we need this approach, but how to implement it today." John P.

Media Convergence Handbook   Vol  2

The Media Convergence Handbook sheds new light on the complexity of media convergence and the related business challenges. Approaching the topic from a managerial, technological as well as end-consumer perspective, it acts as a reference book and educational resource in the field. Media convergence at business level may imply transforming business models and using multiplatform content production and distribution tools. However, it is shown that the implementation of convergence strategies can only succeed when expectations and aspirations of every actor involved are taken into account. Media consumers, content producers and managers face different challenges in the process of media convergence. Volume II of the Media Convergence Handbook tackles these challenges by discussing media business models, production, and users' experience and perspectives from a technological convergence viewpoint.
