This next book is not directly connected with our subject, but I think the value for all of us is simply great, therefore, I decided to add it here. I have read many of Jeb Blount’s books; he just becomes better and better over the years. He is what I call a “no bullshit” kind of writer!
- Virtual Selling: A Quick-Start Guide to Leveraging Video, Technology, and Virtual Communication Channels to Engage Remote Buyers and Close Deals Fast, by Jeb Blount

Extra Book Suggestions that Are Worth Reading – All Related to Experiences and Innovation (from last year’s list):
Culture Your Culture: Innovating Experiences @ Work provides the much-needed “how-to” with Design of Work Experience (DOWE). Organizational culture isn’t just a hot topic – it’s an untapped asset and potential liability for all businesses. And yet, for all its potential to make or break, few know how to manage cultures with proficiency. This is an evergreen kind of book – one that you can always return to again and again. An amazing read authored by Karen Jaw-Madson.
Punk CX: If you want a great, short, well-written, and practical book that will challenge all your customer and employee experience and human senses, then I highly recommend that you read the Punk CX from Adrian Swinscoe. It’s not for people with a weak (faint) heart. This would be a winner if I had to give out a prize.
The Convenience Revolution: How to Deliver a Customer Service Experience that Disrupts the Competition and Creates Fierce Loyalty, by Shep Hyken. When you make it easier for customers to do business with you, they will reward you with their money, their loyalty, and their referrals. There’s a reason they call it a convenience store – because it’s convenient! An amazing book from an amazing author.
