To Sell Is Human offers a fresh look at the art and science of selling. Dan Pink reveals the new ABC’s of moving other (it’s no longer “Always Be Closing,” explains why extroverts don’t make the best salespeople and shows how giving people an off-ramp for their actions can matter more than actually changing their minds.

Time to check out Next Level’s Business Book Reviews
Next Level’s Business Book Reviews is a regular ongoing series where Boston area business owners and professionals will be able to pick up the key ideas and themes from a great business book…and figure out how to start applying those ideas right away. For less than the price of a hard back, you’ll get breakfast (or maybe lunch) and a complete summary and review of an important book.
And the best part? You don’t even need to read the book! We’ll cover the key points, have a great group discussion and get you on your way. You’ll walk out with a several page summary, some new knowledge and introductions to like minded business owners and professionals who also want to learn and be successful!
The morning meetings may be kind of early – but we’ll have coffee and breakfast for you and you’ll be on your way, smarter, happier and better looking than you were before (well at least smarter and happier). We guarantee it!
Here’s what people are saying:
“I thoroughly enjoyed the group discussion around the key points of the book…”
“I thought this was extremely valuable. It was very inspirational and my head is already spinning with ideas and things I want to implement.”
“Saved me time – gave me important information – had interesting discussions! Went back to work! (Great use of my time)!”
“This was a great experience. It allowed me to get the benefits of a book without having to read it all first! Mike knows what he is doing and any time with him leaves a lasting impression.”
“This really added a dynamic to the way I would have been able to think about and comprehend the material on my own.”
Who should attend?
Business leaders and professionals who have a need to keep learning, but don’t have the time nor the inclination to read (i.e. a lot of smart people we know)!
How does it work?
We’ll keep it simple – come in at 7:30, we’ll provide coffee and some eats just to get us rolling. You’ll have a few minutes to meet the other attendees and then we’ll dive into the review and discussion of the book. About 1/2 the time will be spent covering the key ideas and the other 1/2 will be more of a group discussion.
We’re limiting the group size to 15, small enough so everyone can participate, but large enough to have a lively exchange with lots of different viewpoints and ideas.
We’ll close on time and get you on with your day, secure in the knowledge that you know now more…and will be more successful.
If for any reason you don’t feel like you learned at least a couple of useful new ideas, then you will get a complete and cheerful refund…and get to keep your summary!

I hope to see you there!
