Even skilled salespeople buckle in tough selling situations - getting defensive with prospects who challenge them on price or too quickly caving to discount pressure. Those are examples the fight-or-flight response - something salespeople learn to avoid when they build their emotional intelligence.
Studies have shown that emotional intelligence (EI) is a strong indicator of success. In Emotional Intelligence for Sales Success, sales trainer and expert Colleen Stanley shows how closely EI is tied to sales performance and how salespeople can sharpen their skills to maximize results. Listeners will discover:
Emotional intelligence plays a vital role at every stage of the sales process, from business development to closing the deal. When customers can get product information and price comparisons online, the true differentiator is the ability to deftly solve problems and build relationships - EI territory!

This is One of the top 3 sales books I have ever heard, and I have read a lot. It is not your typical Rah Rah sales book (thank God)! She really explains a lot of techniques and the psych0logy behind them. A must listen for anyone in management or sales.
The topic of the book, really brings to light the soft skills that will ultimately increase sales in a career the deals with people. People are emotional buyers, Emotional Intelligence is good material.
smooth delivery and flow of the material.
the material really gets me to focus on things other than just making the sale, things that will improve my technique that have booted my sales because I'm focused on relating to customers and listening to what they are needing.
A book that is work it getting and keeping!!
Looking to improve my life one audio book at a time @paulmmcaffrey
Audible should provide an e copy too, it would make creating notes easier
Stephen Covey's 7 habits had similar idea's
I really enjoyed this book. I've been in sales since 1984 and always relied on my interpersonal skills to achieve success. Colleen offers helpful insight, but I felt a little bored with how it was delivered. Otherwise, I highly recommend.
I thought I was buying another book tying EQ to sales, which this book does do, but in addition it gives you example after example of not only how to sell using EQ, but how to lead using EQ, and how to get extraordinary results, using this understanding of EQ.
If your having trouble always discounting deals and you tend to break. This is the book to read as it gives great insight on how to overcome these things and not break. I enjoyed this book tremendously!!
This book is a well rounded on the basics of sales as it pertains to our interpersonal relationships. It is very insightful and very useful for rookies and intermediate level sales people.

Don't know. Could not listen to it.
I certainly think so.
Ask for a full refund.
Need I say more?
This is a value for money book, I love the structure and examples given here, what this book does for me, is identify areas in my own personal style that I would not have noticed without a review, so as a director its lonely sometimes.
This book shines light on some areas i needed to identify and firm up for further progress in sales.
Its a definite read if you are willing to change for success
"Far too staid"
Some good stuff in there but the book just could not hold my a attention. Not finished.
"One of the best for smart sales"
One of the best books I've read/listened to for sales improvement. Not only does the author talk in real language she also gives fantastic examples of scenarios we've all found ourselves in - in a sales situation and everyday life.
The book has some ideas for sales management too. Other reviews mentioned this was off track but I think if you're looking at the overall experience within a sales team it's great to understand different roles.
A lot of this book confirmed what we all know works and gives so much more!
"This book is excellent!"
This is worth every penny and it is so well written and so much to help with both the psychology of sales and the general why one should behave, but perhaps don't always think to do so.. Lots of valuable advice too!
