HOW TO CHANGE MINDS

In Robert Jolles’ new book, How to Change Minds, Jolles uses hundreds of personal stories—some humorous, all heartfelt—to show exactly how to create positive change with others. Influence without manipulation, says Jolles, isn’t a pitch—it’s a process. And Jolles’ process, now spanning three decades and four continents, comes with a promise: It is “repeatable, predictable, and measurable.” It is also simple, capable of being adapted by anyone, any time, to any situation.

CUSTOMER CENTERED SELLING

Robert Jolles’s Customer Centered Selling 2nd Edition, put to good use by Xerox Corporation’s highly successful staff, outlines a step-by-step technique that teaches anyone who wishes to learn the process of persuasion by reversing the conventional selling process. Just out in its 2nd edition, this book provides a systematic approach that prepares the reader to anticipate… and influence behavior. Eight weeks at number one and over 100 weeks on the Business Best Seller list, this book has now been translated in over a dozen languages.

THE WAY OF THE ROAD WARRIOR

In The Way of the Road Warrior, Robert Jolles shares the wisdom gained through over 2 million miles in the air and 22 years on the road. While traveling domestically and internationally for business, Jolles took notes – for over ten years on his experiences, and now offers insights on the sometimes difficult balancing act between work, travel, and family. With a humorous approach to a challenging topic, readers will not only finish The Way of the Road Warrior better informed, they will find themselves completing their own emotional journey better informed, inspired and motivated as well.

HOW TO RUN SEMINARS AND WORKSHOPS

Robert Jolles’s How To Run Seminars And Workshops 3rd Edition is a true training treasure. Now in its third edition, and now in its 15th year on the bookshelves, this book will assist anyone who needs to present information to any audience. This thoroughly revised edition of the bestselling skill-building consultant guide, is a revision of its successful predecessors which have sold over 100,000 copies since it was first published in 1993.
