Laufsteg nach Guantánamo Seine Religion sind Glamour, Sex und Drogen. Wenn es um Geschmack geht, ist er radikal. Aber nicht deswegen findet sich Modedesigner Boy Hernandez von einem Tag auf den anderen in Guantánamo wieder. Was allerdings die wahren Gründe dafür sind, wieso aus seinem Traum, der größte Designer aller Zeiten zu werden, der absolute Alptraum geworden ist, kann sich Boy selbst am allerwenigsten erklären. Boy Hernandez hat es von der Modeschule in Manila nach New York geschafft. Seine Kreationen werden in einem Atemzug mit Comme des Garçons und Vivienne Westwood genannt. Nun sitzt er in Guantanamo. Die Anklage: Beteiligung an einer islamistischen Verschwörung. Dabei ist Boy nicht einmal religiös – jedenfalls solange Glamour, Sex und Drogen nicht als Religion gelten. Und radikal ist er nur, wenn es um guten Geschmack geht. Dennoch scheinen alle an seine Schuld zu glauben: Die Presse nennt ihn »Fashion-Terrorist«, seine Ex feiert mit ihrem Stück »Im Bett mit dem Feind« Erfolge am Broadway. Nur Boy selbst versucht verzweifelt zu begreifen, wie aus seinem Traum, der größte Designer aller Zeiten zu werden, der absolute Alptraum werden konnte.

Darf ein Staat Söldner verpflichten, um Kriege zu führen? Ist es moralisch vertretbar, Leute dafür zu bezahlen, dass sie Organe spenden? Dürfen Unternehmen gegen Geld das Recht erwerben, die Luft zu verpesten? Fast alles scheint heute käuflich zu sein. Wollten wir das so? Und was können wir dagegen tun? Mit Verve und anhand prägnanter Beispiele widmet sich Michael J. Sandel dieser wichtigen ethischen Frage. Die Regeln des Marktes haben fast alle Lebensbereiche infiltriert, auch jene, die eigentlich jenseits von Konsum und Mehrwert liegen sollten: Medizin, Erziehung, Politik, Recht und Gesetz, Kunst, Sport, sogar Familie und Partnerschaft. Ohne es zu merken, haben wir uns von einer Marktwirtschaft in eine Marktgesellschaft gewandelt. Ist da nicht etwas grundlegend schief gelaufen? Mit Verve und anhand prägnanter Beispiele wirft Michael Sandel eine der wichtigsten ethischen Fragen unserer Zeit auf: Wie können wir den Markt daran hindern, Felder zu beherrschen, in denen er nichts zu suchen hat? Wo liegen seine moralischen Grenzen? Und wie können wir zivilisatorische Errungenschaften bewahren, für die sich der Markt nicht interessiert und die man für kein Geld der Welt kaufen kann?

Gibt es ein Rezept für Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten Führungskräfte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten Verkäufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primär die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und Ländern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der Spitzenverkäufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklären, wie fast jeder Verkäufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verändern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.
