One of the basic tenets of a sales team that meets customers face-to-face is that sales grow as the relationship grows between the customer and the salesperson. Trust is the principal ingredient that keeps relationships going. When a salesperson lies, it is an assault on the very core of the relationship. Truth and transparency while hard to choose, is less painful in the long run. The book advocates using a professional sales system that facilitates sales successes in an easy and legitimate way. A robust sales system not only helps in achieving sales targets but has an overall impact on the motivation of the sales team, thereby curtailing attrition.
