Negative Thinking Could Mean Better Results

Is that really possible? Think ‘negatively’? Yep, that’s what we’re saying.

In this episode, we share a module that Bryan recently taught at a client where they prepared for the ‘worst case scenario’ in the sales process. Each tip Bill and Bryan give have both a market application (outer game) and a mindset application (inner game).

They provide insightful tips for the following sales scenarios:

  • How to handle a deal that has become stuck or stalled
  • How to handle price resistance

Some of this topic comes from Bob Knight’s new book, The Power of Negative Thinking – An Unconventional Approach to Achieving Positive Results.

[PART 1] Expert Interview with Head Coach Lin Dunn on Basketball and Business Success

Lin Dunn - Expert Interview on The Advanced Selling Podcast

This is the first of a two-part series of our interview with Coach Lin Dunn of the Indianapolis Fever of the WNBA. Part 2 will be released on January 14, 2013.

Now, you’re probably wondering, “What does the WNBA have to do with my business success?” Well, maybe nothing…however…if you haven’t heard Lin Dunn speak before, you’re in for a treat.

She has been successful as a coach at every level of women’s basketball and even wnba.com refers to her as,”One of the most successful women’s basketball coaches in history.”  Lin’s message with Brooke and Bill has little to do with basketball and a lot to do with the “attributes of success.” Her style is folksy…but her message is poignant.
