They want sellers who create personalized value and build bonds of trust, sellers who provide a meaningful and relevant experience, and sellers who demonstrate genuine leadership. Your buyers want you to inspire and motivate them while giving them an opportunity to participate in creating something extraordinary. They want you to collaborate with them, strengthen them, and encourage them in the process. They avoid transactions when they anticipate a seller will leave them feeling suspicious, sidelined or manipulated. Unfortunately, they anticipate that most of the time. That's why, to differentiate yourself, and to become a seller of choice and make more sales, you need to Stop Selling & Start Leading.
