The Contrarian Salesperson: A Parable for Non-Traditional Selling

By Jody Williamson

In this fast-paced business parable, fed-up boss Harvey Hardnose sends a struggling salesperson, Alan Atleaster, into the care of eccentric sales coach Carl Contrario. Over the next eight weekends, Alan strives to hold on to his job … by learning, and living, the Eight Rules of the Contrarian Salesperson:

1. Zig When Others Zag

2. Sell Adult To Adult

3. Everything Is An Iceberg

4. No Coasting

5. Manage Behavior, Not Results

6. Use A Sales Process

7. Embrace Deliberate Practice

8. If You Feel It, Say It

Based on the field-tested principles of the Sandler Selling System, THE CONTRARIAN SALESPERSON gives sales professionals a compulsively readable primer on the eight essential elements of non-traditional selling. As Carl Contrario puts it: “Contrarian Salespeople are all about doing the opposite of what other salespeople do … because if you act like every other salesperson, you’re going to be treated like every other salesperson!”
