Psychology of Sales Call Reluctance: Earning What You're Worth
by George W. Dudley & Shannon L. Goodson

Performance alone no longer determines success. Pioneering researchers Dudley and Goodson discovered something more important: self-promotion. Some of the most highly paid and powerful people did not attain their positions by being the most technically competent. They did it through purposeful self-promotion. Some people are natural self-promoters. They are born with the instinct to self-promote. For others, often the most loyal, motivated and deserving, self-promotion is emotionally difficult. They are rendered invisible by a spirit-crushing condition the authors call the fear of self-promotion.

When the fear of self-promotion victimizes salespeople, emotionally limiting their ability to initiate contact with prospective buyers, it's tagged sales call reluctance. Far more than the fear of making cold calls or using the telephone, sales call reluctance obstructs all forms of prospecting for new business. And it costs. Each year, sales call reluctance single-handedly accounts for over half of all failures in one of the largest professions in the world.

Although written primarily for salespeople, anyone who has to practice visibility management to get ahead can benefit from reading this book. Through anecdotes, examples and step-by-step directions, you will discover what sales call reluctance really is, how it cripples careers and how to keep it from limiting your career.

"Your most valuable asset is your earning ability, and in this practical, insightful book, you'll learn how to increase your value and your income continuously throughout your career. It's worth its weight in gold." - Brian Tracy
