This is a great starter book and foundation for managers/salespeople. Chapters 2 & 3 are structured very well detailing "The Five Beliefs of Effective leaders" and "The Seven Traits of Great Sellers."

I strongly agree with Mr. Karr's statement on "The Leader's Advantage" as he states, "In today's economy, salespeople have to prove their value with every sale. They cannot rely on loyalty from past transactions. The result is they have to have a positive impact on the careers and lives of everyone with whom they connect, every time. Otherwise, they may still have great relationships but only a fraction of the business they need and deserve."

As a business coach and author, I couldn't have said it better myself, as I believe, who we are is more important than what we do. Having great character, integrity, vision, and enthusiasm builds an environment of trust for prospects and existing customers. This is very essential in today's business world. I highly recommend this book. ( )

Praise for Lead, Sell, or Get Out of the Way

"Karr's book, Lead, Sell, or Get Out of the Way, illustrates what we believe: that knowing your customers' needs is the single most important factor in building sales. Business starts with the sale. To make profitable sales, you need to understand your customer and create a timely value proposition. This book shows you how to do both."
—Larry Kellner, Chairman and CEO, Continental Airlines

"As CEO and Chairman of the Board of three publicly traded companies, I felt that Karr's strategies in Lead, Sell, or Get Out of the Way absolutely provided the powerful results he predicted. In one case, we completely eliminated a competitor who posed a strategic threat. I guess you can say they 'got out of the way.' Karr will show you what is required and how to be a top producer in your market. This book is a must-read."
—James T. Treace, President and Managing Member, J&A Group, LLC,

former chairman of the board, Wright Medical, Inc., and Kyphon, Inc.

"Karr captures a lifetime of winning strategies and experiences and puts them in a practical context for sales leaders and sellers. This book challenges many of the older paradigms of selling and emphasizes the importance of keeping the focus on the customers and providing positive outcomes. In today's challenging market conditions, where the primary focus is on market share, this is a must-read."
—Barry S. Goldstein, Senior Vice President, Global Sales Strategy & Operations, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.

"Karr's book clearly identifies what it takes to be a highly effective sales leader. The principles in Karr's book are concise and illuminating. Follow his system and your sales organization will succeed in any market. An absolute must-read."
—Mike Beaudry, Division President, United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI)

"Karr does it again! Lead, Sell, or Get Out of the Way gives you the ultimate approach to giving added value to customers and creating value for yourself . . . The seven traits are what's needed in today's world, and this book is an outstanding guide to becoming proficient in all of them."
—David Preng, Preng & Associates, The Global Energy Search Leader

In today's sales world there's no room for followers. But there's plenty of room for leaders. Competition is intense, and if you don't take a leadership role in producing results for your clients, someone else will. In Lead, Sell, or Get Out of the Way, Ron Karr outlines a repeatable process based on the powerful idea that great sellers lead relationships in the same way that great leaders sell ideas. No matter what you sell, you must communicate persuasively and effectively what it is you can offer clients. However, sales leaders do even more than that. They raise the bar by finding new opportunities and creating new levels of performance for their customers. They don't just sell products or services; they sell outcomes that transform a customer's world, and they assume personal responsibility for those outcomes. This customer-focused mindset is the key to Karr's proven leadership selling process. Based on decades of research with companies of all sizes, Karr reveals what great sellers do and shows how anyone can implement the same powerful principles. He offers an in-depth exploration of the seven critical traits all sales leaders share. Today's top sales leaders: * Have a clear vision of where they're going. * Position themselves powerfully in the minds of customers. * Build alliances rather than go it alone. * Ask powerful questions that result in new sales opportunities. * Create a value proposition that neutralizes the competition. * Communicate well and persuasively. * Embrace accountability and responsibility. Many sales leaders learn these principles through trial and error. This audio book helps you avoid the trial and error part and skip straight to the success part. Why learn the hard way when you can listen to this audio, learn these principles, and start-today, selling more, faster, and at a higher profit? If you sell things for a living or manage people who sell, you face a stark choice that you had better get right-to Lead, Sell, or Get Out of the Way. Choose wisely and sales success will be yours.… (more)
