by Duane Lakin

Overview
The Unfair Advantage: Sell with NLP! is a book for people who want new skills to influence others, who know that all selling is personal, and who see the need to sell themselves more effectively. It is for people who want to have an advantage in everything that they say, write and do. It is for YOU if you want to find an edge--an advantage--in your work life. Much of The Unfair Advantage: Sell with NLP! is based on NLP (neurolinguistic programming) skills. But NLP is much more and much less than what is seen in this book. The techniques and skills here have been fine-tuned by the author for the last 30 years for only one purpose: to help sales and marketing professionals be more effective and successful. This book will teach you how to sell YOU, understand your prospects, and lead the sales process.
Description
The Unfair Advantage: Sell with NLP! is a book for people who want new skills to influence others, who know that all selling is personal, and who see the need to sell themselves more effectively. It is for people who want to have an advantage in everything that they say, write and do. It is for YOU if you want to find an edge--an advantage--in your work life. The Unfair Advantage: Sell with NLP! is a “workshop-in-a-workbook.” It contains practical ideas and exercises for applying NLP (neurolinguistic programming) to sales and marketing. It includes “how-to” ideas for selling face-to-face, telemarketing, direct mail, and other real-world situations. Included are examples of scripts and techniques that have produced proven sales increases. It is a theory-free collection of techniques based on a workshop that has been presented to CEOs and sales professionals in over 800 companies in the United States, Russia, Hungary, Italy, Canada, and England. NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR This book is unique in its focus on proven practical techniques. It is not a “motivation” book or a touchy-feely, self-affirmation book. You do not need motivation if you are having successful sales results. This book gives you the advantage you need to get such results. The Unfair Advantage began when a client said, “We want to stop coming in second.” Over the past thirty years, I have honed and tested the techniques that are in this book. Don’t buy this book looking for easy answers. It still takes practice. But everything in The Unfair Advantage: Sell with NLP! works, and it can work for you.

About the author
Dr. Duane Lakin is a psychologist and business consultant. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, Duane has over thirty years of experience serving business leaders as an industrial psychologist dedicated to helping people and businesses be more effective. Since the mid-1980’s, he has been looking at ways to make NLP (neurolinguistic programming) useful to sales people. Sales representatives have told him clearly that they are not interested in touchy-feely theories or complex analytical approaches to selling. At the same time, he has discovered that few sales people are trained to sell themselves and how to use language to increase their effectiveness. Not surprisingly, he has seen remarkable sales increases resulting from brief training in the art and skill of selling YOU, your ideas and your products. His workshop, "The Unfair Advantage—Sell with NLP!", has been seen by representatives of over 750 companies in the U.S., U.K., Russia, Hungary, Italy, and Canada. He has trained managers from companies such as Xerox, TripAdvisor, PacBell, Andersen Consulting, American General, Cable and Wireless, Hewlett Packard, GE, and many others. He has written or contributed to articles in "Selling Power", "HR Magazine", "Production and Inventory Management", and "Sales and Marketing Excellence". He is a recipient of the “TEC 200” and “Vistage 100 Achievement Award” designations for outstanding resource speakers to TEC (now called Vistage). His book (based on the workshop) has been translated and published in English, Romanian, Bulgarian, Polish and Spanish languages. An audio version of the original edition of the book and a DVD of a live workshop are available. New online lessons can be seen at www.SellWithNLP.com.
