Genre: Social Science

Warum wir nur denen vertrauen sollten, die etwas zu verlieren haben Stehen wir für die Risiken ein, die wir verursachen? Zu viele der Menschen, die auf der Welt Macht und Einfluss haben, so Nassim Nicholas Taleb, müssen nicht wirklich den Kopf hinhalten für das, was sie tun und veranlassen. Intellektuelle, Journalisten, Bürokraten, Banker, ihnen vor allem wirft er vor, kein »Skin in the Game« zu haben. Weil sie den Preis nicht bezahlen müssen, wenn sie irren, fällen sie schlechte Entscheidungen. Taleb zeigt anhand vieler Beispiele, wie »Skin in the Game«, ein fundamentales Konzept des Risikomanagements, auf alle Bereiche unseres Lebens übertragen werden kann. Sein neues Buch, so provozierend und bahnbrechend wie »Der Schwarze Schwan«, fordert uns heraus, alles, was wir über Risiko und Verantwortung in Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zu wissen glauben, neu zu denken.

Selling Professional and Financial Services Handbook

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

Release Date: 2013-11-11
Genre: Business & Economics

An effective strategic framework for successful face-to-faceselling for financial services industry professionals Times are very tough for people who sell professional services andSelling Professional and Financial Services Handbook offersa new solution proven in practice. The book describes methodsthe authors have used and taught since the 1990s, most recently ata major consulting firm, where they led a Global BusinessDevelopment team to revenue gains of 500% over six years — ina period that included the recession of 2008-10. The solution is not any new twist on face-to-face sellingtechniques or the art of persuasion. It’s a strategicapproach built around a simple fact: the markets are tightbut far from static. Even with lean budgets, client companies mustrespond to urgent changes and emerging threats in their industries.Thus they will buy services from the sellers who can help themdetect, understand, and cope with what’s coming theirway. This handbook outlines a systematic way of becoming such avalued resource. Readers learn to scan the horizon for earlysigns of “rock-ripple events.” Major changes in thebusiness world often spring from new developments that are littlenoted or heeded, at first, by the client companies soon to beaffected by them. But like a rock dropped in a pond, theseevents set off ripples that sweep through entire industry sectors,creating must-have service needs. The book is written for everyone who sells, or is responsiblefor selling, professional services. This includes but is notlimited to: law firms, consulting firms, finance industry, publicrelations, engineering, and architectural services. Readers who can benefit from the dynamic approach hold avariety of positions. They include: Attorneys, consultants and other practitioners who must selltheir services as well as execute. CEOs, equity partners, practice-area leaders, functional anddivisional leaders Private Equity or Venture Capital executives Sales or business-development professionals, from entry levelto senior level Sales and marketing managers But the book is for sellers in every category who need anew and better approach to selling. Many, even the mostskilled, simply have not adjusted to the new normal oftoday’s economy. They persist with old strategies that cannotbe as productive as they once were, such as pursuing one-offopportunities (which are too few and too hard to win in lean times)or old-style “relationship selling” (which gains littleif any traction). Selling Professional and FinancialServices Handbook gives all such readers a new strategicframework within which to apply their face-to-face sellingskills. It is an approach that puts them in position to win— so they can sell from ahead of the game, instead ofstruggling to keep up with it.
