Reviewed by Essien Asian for Readers' Favorite

In today’s rapidly evolving world of business, the difference between staying afloat and bankruptcy comes down to the finest of margins. One of those key inputs happens to be sales. When businesses come under pressure to deliver, more often than not that pressure is transferred to the sales sector. While some lucky enterprises can maneuver their way out of this problem, the vast majority inevitably fail. What they do not realize is that their sales strategies are supposed to evolve in tandem with their markets. The Diligence Fix by Dayna Williams is a strategic approach to delivering on this objective.

The first thing the reader must realize about The Diligence Fix is that this is not a magic wand that will correct the problems with their sales sector overnight. What Dayna Williams has done is explain her strategy in simple language while using a baby-step approach to integrating her ideas into any forward-thinking enterprise's operations. She is careful to point out the flaws with established approaches toward maximizing sales and she offers reasons backed by sound data as to why The Diligence Fix is superior to them. Her views on the ten dimensions, especially those subsections dealing with listening to clientele and persuasive conversation, are very enlightening. Her delivery is so analytical that it is impossible not to grasp the gist of her ideas. The best part of this book for me is the aspect that focuses on training the trainers; there are hidden gems there that a lot of us take for granted in business. The Diligence Fix is a must-have for anyone in the business sector.
