Publisher's Summary

Persuade, Don’t Push! Surely you know plenty of people who need to make a change, but despite your most well-intentioned efforts, they resist because people fundamentally fear change. As a salesman, father, friend, and consultant, Rob Jolles knows this scenario all too well. Drawing on his highly successful sales background and decades of research, he lays out a simple, repeatable, predictable, and ethical process that will enable you to lead others to discover for themselves what and why they need to change.

Whether you hope to make a sale or improve a relationship, Jolles’ wise advice - illustrated through a bevy of sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always illuminating stories - will help you ensure that changing someone’s mind is never an act of coercion but rather one of caring and compassion.

If you want to change minds the right way, listening to this audio is the right thing to do." (Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and Trust Works!)

Decision making

Great book. Authors narration made it more fun to listen and his presentation skills and personality added character to the stories told.

This should be read by everyone! It’s not just how to sell, it’s how you can build trusting relationships to help influence decision making in any relationship.

Thank you Rob!
