Our May book is To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others by Daniel Pink. How do you persuade, influence and move others? Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others. Like it or not, we’re all in sales. Using a mix of social science, survey research and rich stories, this book offers a fresh look at the art and science of sales. Through the Chic Geek Book Club, we’ll explore six successors to the elevator pitch, three rules for understanding another’s perspective and the five frames that can help make your message clearer.
