About the Author

David Priemer is an expert in the area of sales and sales leadership and has been published in the Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review as well as Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Inc. magazines.

He has led top-performing sales teams at high-growth startups and is a former VP of Salesforce, where he created the Sales Leadership Academy program.

Often referred to as the "Sales Professor," David helps organizations drive revenue growth, people development, and winning cultures by infusing the core principles of science, empathy, and execution into their sales operations.

He is also an Adjunct Professor at the Smith School of Business at Queen's University.

And, interesting fact – he earned an undergraduate degree in chemistry and later pursued graduate work in chemical engineering, and at the University of Toronto built computer models to help the scientific community understand the movement of toxic contaminants in urban areas, for which he was awarded a master's degree.

About the Book

When was the last time you enjoyed talking to a salesperson?

While a Vice President at Salesforce, David Priemer had an epiphany: the very sales tactics his team was using were not working on him. While the company―and his entire profession―was acting with more than enough gusto, they lacked emotional awareness and empathy. Put simply: they were not selling the way they buy.

The truth is that, as buyers, we’re not often aware of the pathways and mechanisms by which we make purchasing decisions, and customers aren’t always sure about what they want or need.

In Sell the Way You Buy, Priemer reveals scientifically supported methods of understanding your customer, identifying their needs, and moving them toward the right solution, all while avoiding the behaviors that make the average person dislike salespeople.

Sell the Way You Buy is about much more than putting yourself in the customer’s shoes. It’s about learning how to ask questions, how to listen, how to tell a compelling brand story, and how to talk to customers in a human way that truly connects. In short: to sell the way you buy.
