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!

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!!
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.
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
