  • Matthew Dixon & Brent

    Matt is an extraordinary thinker about sales and customer service. The Challenger Sale, co-authored with Brent Adamson, has started the most profound discussion of the profession of selling in decades. Whether one agrees with it (I tend to agree with much of what is presented) or not, Matt and Brent have succeeded in getting sales professionals to think differently about what we do and how we engage customers.

    Brent is the co-author of the bestsellers The Challenger Customer and The Challenger Sale, Brent Adamson is Principal Executive Advisor in CEB’s Sales and Marketing Practice. In that role, he serves as the chief story teller for both the Sales Executive Council and Marketing Leadership Council. Well known for both his passion and excitement for great ideas, Brent is a sought-after speaker and facilitator on commercial transformation.

    In his 13 years at CEB Brent has presented to and worked with tens of thousands of sales and marketing professionals all over the world to redefine what good looks like when it comes to commercial excellence. As part of that work, he has been privileged to partner with some of the greatest thought leaders working in B2B sales and marketing today.

    The book deals with few shocking revelations. As, everyone till ages thought that building a perfect sales deal depends on the crucial relationship that you share with your client,but it’s so not. The authors of the book took control to analyze is it the skill set, the behavior or the attitude that simmers the success rate. But like us they were shocked too that it isn’t the case. 

    It isn’t the relationship that we build makes our deal happen, but like all these factors it is also an average performance factor. These skills can fall into 5 profiles out of which 4 of them still deliver average rate of sales, the only one that generate high performance is the Challenger profile.
    And this book teaches us that rather than concentrating just on relationships or skill set handling try to challenge your client. In return of gathering them with numerous facts and figures about the company challenge them to risk it and let them know how will they gain profits out of that. 

    Just predict who is the one in your organization and make them do the deal!
