Like it or not, we live in a digital-first age, where your first interaction with someone will likely be online. Which means, it is now possible to make a first impression even while you sleep. How does this impact your career? Studies have shown over 9o% of recruiters today, search for candidates online before they decide to give them a call. Is your brand ready for this? I have spent the last five years understanding how this digital-first world applies to and impacts our careers. This book is the culmination of what I have learned. Credibility has always been the key to unlocking career opportunities. In the not so distant past, credibility was earned by your time in a position, perceived company loyalty, and of course your level of expertise in your field. The challenge with this is that credibility was only recognized locally, within the four walls of your company. However, thanks to the Internet, you can now earn your career credibility, or CareerKred as I call it, globally, by intentionally building your personal brand, establishing your digital brand, providing thought leadership, and engaging with those interested in your field of study. In fact, with the right digital brand you can be recognized for your expertise globally. You are no longer confined by your company's four walls. During the course of this book, you will learn how to build your digital brand and use it to establish your CareerKred online. By following the 4 simple steps of the process I call D.I.C.E., you will learn how to define your brand, integrate your brand online, position your brand in your area of expertise and engage with your audience. This simple 4-step process will help you build a modern day digital brand that will set you apart from your competition and help you get recognized for your expertise, even if you don't know where to start. With the changes to the career landscape accelerating, it's time to take your brand global. It's time to establish your digital brand now, before you need it. This book will show you how.

Build better relationships and Sell More Effectively With a Powerful SALES STORY “Throughout our careers, we have been trained to ask diagnostic questions, deliver value props, and conduct ROI studies. It usually doesn’t work; best case, we can argue with the customer about numbers—purely a left brain exercise, which turns buyers off. This book explains a better way.” —John Burke, Group Vice President, Oracle Corporation “Forget music, a great story has charm to soothe the savage beast and win over the most challenging customer. And one of the best guides in crafting it, feeling it, and telling it is What Great Salespeople Do. A must-read for anyone seeking to influence another human being.” —Mark Goulston, M.D., author of the #1 international bestseller Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone “Good salespeople tell stories that inform prospects; great salespeople tell stories that persuade prospects. This book reveals what salespeople need to do to become persuasive story sellers.” —Gerhard Gschwandtner, publisher of Selling Power “This book breaks the paradigm. It really works miracles!” —David R. Hibbard, President, Dialexis IncTM “What Great Salespeople Do humanizes the sales process.” —Kevin Popovic, founder, Ideahaus® “Mike and Ben have translated what therapists have known for years into a business solution—utilizing and developing one’s Emotional Intelligence to engage and lessen the defenses of others. What Great Salespeople Do is a step-by-step manual on how to use compelling storytelling to masterfully engage others and make their organizations great.” —Christine Miles, M.S., Psychological Services, Executive Coach, Miles Consulting LLC About the Book: This groundbreaking book offers extraordinary insight into the greatest mystery in sales: how the very best salespeople consistently and successfully influence change in others, inspiring their customers to say yes. Top-performing salespeople have always had a knack for forging connections and building relationships with buyers. Until now, this has been considered an innate talent. What Great Salespeople Do challenges some of the most widely accepted paradigms in selling in order to prove that influencing change in buyers is a skill that anyone can learn. The creator of Solution Selling and CustomerCentric Selling, Michael Bosworth, along with veteran sales executive Ben Zoldan, synthesize discoveries in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and other disciplines, combining it all into a field-tested framework—helping you break down barriers, build trust, forge meaningful relationships, and win more customers. This book teaches you how to: Relax a buyer’s skepticism while activating the part of his or her brain where trust is formed and connections are forged Use the power of story to influence buyers to change Make your ideas, beliefs, and experiences “storiable” using a proven story structure Build a personal inventory of stories to use throughout your sales cycle Tell your stories with authenticity and real passion Use empathic listening to get others to reveal themselves Incorporate storytelling and empathic listening to achieve collaborative conversations with buyers Breakthroughs in neuroscience have determined that people don’t make decisions solely on the basis of logic; in fact, emotions play the dominant role in most decision-making processes. What Great Salespeople Do gives you the tools and techniques to influence change and win more sales.
