In 2011, The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International’s editors asked 30 global nurse leaders to identify 10 of the most critical issues in the profession. The result was the first edition of The Power of Ten, a collection of essays and data- and talking points that explored the obstacles nurses faced. The book challenged long-held beliefs that were stymying progress and invited readers to join the conversation about how to move nursing forward. The time has come to revisit and revise those issues and drive the conversation even further to support real change and progress in the profession. In this all-new edition, Susan B. Hassmiller and Jennifer S. Mensik connected with more than 50 national and international nurse leaders to survey the most pressing issues in the profession. From that feedback, they arrived at a new list of priorities. Through essays, action items, discussion points, and data, The Power of Ten, Second Edition, will help nurses question, converse, and lead the way into the future of nursing.

Gibt es ein Rezept für Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten Führungskräfte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten Verkäufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primär die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und Ländern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der Spitzenverkäufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklären, wie fast jeder Verkäufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verändern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.
