The Art of Seduction—It's Just Business
Why aren’t you the one who is getting noticed? Getting the big deals? Getting the promotion?
Perhaps it is because as one author writes, you don’t know the art of seduction. NO, not that type of seduction - we're talking business seduction.
In his new book, Mark Jeffries writes that as in life, the people you meet and need in business want to and need to be wooed.
Remember it’s all about them — not you — and way too often that gets forgotten.
Too many job interviews go south because you're over-selling yourself, or that great idea you pitched in the morning got shelved because you just couldn't read the subtle clues of when to shut up or you didn't get that promotion because frankly, you just don't know how to make the boss feel better about hiring you in the first place.
In "THE ART OF BUSINESS SEDUCTION: A 30-Day Plan to Get Noticed, Get Promoted and Get Ahead", Jeffries sets out to teach readers how to get noticed for all the RIGHT reasons.
By following his advice, Jeffries says he can teach you how to:
- Translate subtle clues in the voice, body language, and even handshake of others
- Maximize the persuasiveness of what is said and how it is being said
- Use Networking secrets and be able to read someone’s secret signals
- Hone the "elevator pitch" and make the opening statement a positive shocker
- Own their image – taking advantage of the fact that they are always being judged
I've asked Jeffries to write up a Guest Author Blog for Bullish. Click ahead to read his post and to read an excerpt of "The Art of Business Seduction."

Summer is over and now it's time to put into action all those cool ideas that you had while laying out in the sun. However, as important as the upcoming months are, it's crucial to make time to look back as well especially at past connections...
Sometimes, our best intentions to build relationships and effectively connect fall by the wayside. We get distracted by bright and shiny things and other stuff just takes up all our time.
But that doesn't just happen to you - it happens to everyone and believe it or not, many of your past contacts become embarrassed by how much time has passed since they last reached out to you.
These are people who, perhaps, were interested, but at that time, months ago, it wasn't happening. Maybe they didn't have the budget or couldn't get it cleared by their bosses. Now, though, they feel it would almost be rude to come back to you as they have been so quiet ... for so long.
