April/May Programming for Best Seller TV Features Authors Ilja Grzeskowitz, Meridith Elliott Powell, Jason Forrest, Donna Cutting, and Billee Howard
NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – May 11, 2016) – Best Seller TV, one of the top online business shows on C-Suite TV, has announced their upcoming episodes for April and May. Best Seller TV will feature in-depth interviews with a number of leading business authors: Ilja Grzeskowitz, author of Think It. Do It. Change It.: How to Dream Big, Act Bold and Get the Results You Want, Meridith Elliott Powell, author of Own It: Redefining Responsibility – Stories of Power, Freedom & Purpose, Jason Forrest, author of Leadership Sales Coaching: Transforming from Manager to Coach, Donna Cutting, author of 501 Ways to Roll Out the Red Carpet For Your Customer: Easy to Implement Ideas to Inspire Loyalty, Get New Customers and Make Lasting Impressions and Billie Howard, author of WE-Commerce: How to Create, Collaborate and Succeed in the Sharing Economy.
Ilja Grzeskowitz, or “change expert #1” as he’s known by German media, talks about his new book, Think It. Do It. Change It.: How to Dream Big, Act Bold and Get the Results You Want, which details the step-by-step process he uses with clients to make change happen. Grzeskowitz says in order to make change happen, one must not just think differently, but act differently, too. He also highlights the six steps to fully execute the change you want — dream, vision, direction, goal, action plan and execution. A firm believer in ‘firing’ the negative people in your life and allowing the fear of change to become your best friend, Grzeskowitz feels dealing with change will be the most important skill everyone will need to master in the upcoming years. He urges his readers to remember the following when thinking of change, “You will become the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Become an agent of change.
In her book, Own It: Redefining Responsibility – Stories of Power, Freedom & Purpose, Meridith Elliott Powell talks about the need for both leaders and employees to take responsibility — not only in their work life, but in their personal life as well. She decided to write the book after discovering how powerful and empowering taking ownership of your own life and career can be. Powell feels that, “If people could learn how to take responsibility and the skill of it, they can do or accomplish anything they wanted” and when both leaders and employees take responsibility, she states, you have “a serious recipe for success.”
Jason Forrest, author of Leadership Sales Coaching: Transforming from Manager to Coach, compares sales professionals to athletes in the sense that they want to be coached like an athlete, rather than managed like an employee. He also highlights the difference of being a manager and a coach, stating that a manager makes peoples’ lives easier, while coaches make people better. Forrest is also a big believer in unleashing profits through people. The book is field-tested to reduce turnovers and increase sales, and it’s aimed at “corporate gladiators” interested in becoming coaches rather than managers.
Donna Cutting’s book, 501 Ways to Roll Out the Red Carpet For Your Customer: Easy to Implement Ideas to Inspire Loyalty, Get New Customers and Make Lasting Impressions, tackles the world of customer service and rolling out the red carpet for all customers. Cutting states that employees need to be armed with all the proper tools in order to provide excellent customer service. When employees don’t have all the tools, there’s a disconnect with the service they ought to provide, but don’t. She says there are four main things to think about:
1. Consistency – Every customer receiving the same level of service from every team member at every opportunity, every single time
2. Technical piece – Involves asking the question, ‘Am I delivering the product or service I’m promising?’
3. How do you deliver – How are employees delivering customer service? Are they making the customer feel like they’re important?
4. ‘Wow’ factor – The unexpected moment of surprise and delight that makes people want to talk about you in a positive way
Billee Howard’s book, WE-Commerce: How to Create, Collaborate and Succeed in the Sharing Economy, highlights a world in which culture and commerce collide in ways that are considered unprecedented and an economy driven by entrepreneurialism and creativity. Howard talks about how the sharing economy ushered a variety of micro-economies that enable people to come together and experience luxuries they’ve never experienced before. She makes the argument that millennials, and Gen Z behind them, aren’t interested in owning possessions, but in sharing, borrowing, and using technology to come together and help make the world a better place.
All episodes of Best Seller TV will air throughout the month on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality Taryn Winter Brill.
