Will you recognize that opportunity when you see it? Will you know how to make the very most of it? If you implement each of the strategies in this book, the answer will be "Yes." According to Stephan Schiffman, a renowned corporate consultant who has worked closely with many of the world's top companies and CEOs, there is one key characteristic that all successful people have in common: They sense almost instantly when there is a chance to establish an advantageous business or professional alliance -- and when they recognize such an opportunity, they quickly take steps to move the relationship forward to a Next Step that helps both parties. Schiffman's systems have delivered results for over 450,000 salespeople at companies like Aetna U.S. Healthcare, AT&T, Merrill Lynch, MCI/WorldCom, Sprint, Exxon-Mobil, and Lexis-Nexis. In Make It Happen Before Lunch, he offers 50 proven, easy-to-implement strategies that show you exactly how to move ahead to the all-important Next Step in virtually any business relationship. You’ll learn how to get your next phone call returned, how to set up a meeting with a reluctant prospect, and how to use a single, simple question to find out exactly where you stand with your contact (and what to do next). Once you learn to use his 50 strategies to make something good happen before lunch, you'll get in the habit of setting something important in motion for the future, each and every business day. That’s a habit that pays off handsome dividends. Chock-full of rules, tips, strategies, and anecdotes applicable to virtually every business situation, Schiffman's blueprint for high achievement shows you exactly how to: · Establish quickly whether your relationship is "alive" and capable of moving forward right now · Throw the conversational "ball" in a way that dramatically increases the likelihood that the other person will respond positively to your suggestions · Prioritize your day so you connect with the most promising contacts first · Act where you want to be, not where you are · Keep setbacks in perspective ... and be ready to move on at peak effectiveness to the next prospect · Create a sense of urgency in others about agreeing to a Next Step with you · Reshape your product, service, or promotion to match what your contact is trying to accomplish Whether you’re in finance or sales, management or outside consulting, high or not-so-high on the corporate ladder, you’ll get more of what you want out of work -- and out of life -- when you let Stephan Schiffman show you how to Make It Happen Before Lunch.
