Sales reps are often trained in successful negotiation, and this can provide a significant edge when dealing with a demanding buyer. But what happens when the purchasing agent across the table is ALSO a highly trained negotiator? How can a sales rep succeed when their negotiation counterpart is every bit as skilled in the art of negotiation as they are?
In this excellent video from former FBI hostage negotiator and Black Swan Group CEO Chris Voss, you’ll learn how to effectively read and respond to the tactics of a highly-trained buyer purchase negotiator. While the interviewer’s commentary can be distracting at times, it draws out insights from Voss that are pure sales gold.

Negotiation skills are part of an advanced sales toolkit, but the specific ways to apply this tool are often a mystery for sales reps. In this insightful video, former FBI hostage negotiator and Black Swan Group CEO Chris Voss dispels many of the myths and misconceptions surrounding negotiation and shows you why getting to “no” may be your best path to sales negotiation success.
Like his book, “Never Split The Difference, Negotiating As If Your Life Depended on It” this video is highly recommended, whether you are trying to win a sales deal or save the lives of innocent hostages.

In this fascinating work, former FBI hostage negotiator and current Black Swan Group CEO Chris Voss explores the inner workings of high-stakes, life-and-death negotiations and distills the resulting principles into a universal working toolbox for the successful negotiator. While conventional theory holds that negotiation should be a relentless, even abusive, pursuit of “yes”, Chris makes an effective case for why sometimes a well-considered “no” or “that’s right!” affirmation is the optimal outcome.
Whether you hope to use your newfound negotiation skills to save lives, lead a team, drive business, or just save a few bucks on a Buick, this book is a great tool to develop your tradecraft. For free preview, click the Amazon link below.

That’s all you need to know about selling…right? Not so fast.
For years, sales reps have heard these adages and many try to follow them. Yet some succeed while others do not. In this groundbreaking, research-driven work, the Challenger Sale explores the reasons for success – or failure – among five dominant rep profiles:
- The Hard Worker
- The Problem Solver
- The Relationship Builder
- The Lone Wolf
- The Challenger.
Through analysis of more than 6,000+ salespeople, 90+ companies, and a spectrum of industries, the research found a single profile dominated and defined nearly 40% of the top -selling sales professionals. The specifics of the research and its sometime counter-intuitive roadmap for sales success make this an essential read for the complex sale. Check out Amazon for a free preview!

First released in 1988, Neil Rackham’s SPIN®Selling asserted the most successful sellers are seen by their customers as consultants or problem solvers who are working in the customers’ best interest.
SPIN Selling was one of the first sales methodologies backed by objective research. While later methodologies such as the Challenger Sale offer important enhancements, SPIN Selling remains an essential and versatile foundation for the successful sales professional.
One of McGraw-Hill’s all-time top-selling business books, SPIN Selling is currently Amazon’s best-selling book on sales. In its 2013 list of the “Top 10 ‘How To Sell’ Books of All Time,” Inc. magazine wrote:
″Finally, this is the book that turned selling from an art into a science. While other sales books are heavy with anecdotes and assumptions, Neil Rackham examined hard evidence of actual sales performance and codified what works — and what doesn’t — in real world sales situations. A must-read for everyone who sells″
