Empowerment Selling, STOP Selling and START Fulfilling Your Customers’ Needs

Featuring Fran Fisher, MCC, and Mark Bornstein


Empowerment Selling demonstrates the paradigm shift from selling a product or service by having to convince the customer that it’s the best product/service (which, at the extreme, would be high pressure sales) to facilitating the customer in a client-generated solution for a successful outcome which helps build collaborative, ongoing relationships—and a long-term sales win/win strategy. We are presenting a powerful approach we call The 3C Principle: Connect. Clarify. Cultivate. The 3C Principle focuses on the essence of this underlying empowerment philosophy for effective sales versus detailed mechanics or formulated scripts and the inference that the seller knows more than the customer.

The Illusion of Hopelessness

by Fran Fisher, MCC


Fran explores the challenges and rewards of Coaching Youth at Risk which most often requires breaking the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse.  The Illusion of Hopelessness was inspired by Craig Trowhill, who lived the “street experience”—gangs, drugs, and violence.  After discovering martial arts and then being introduced to the coaching profession, Craig turned his life around to be of service, working with youth caught in the juvenile court system in Toronto, Canada.  Craig had a dream of publishing a book that would send a message to youth: “If I can turn my life around, so can you!”

The Illusion of Hopelessness shares a broad range of stories of youth, from those who are living a middle-class lifestyle with parents who can afford to pay for personal coaching to youth dealing with addictions or attention disorders to homeless youth to youth caught in domestic violence, poverty, crime, and the criminal justice system.  Contributors range from highly structured youth intervention programs with a staff of highly trained internationally certified coaches to informal approaches by individuals who have not been formally trained as coaches.

This book will be especially important if you are a

  • Parent of a struggling youth.  You will learn effective ways of supporting your youth through their adolescent years – and beyond – or a healthy, happy, and productive life.
  • Member of a community service organization.  You will see opportunities to contribute to breaking the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse for our youth.
  • Nonprofit working with youth-at-risk.  This book will validate your vision and mission and inspire new models for greater effectiveness; it will provide inspiration and guidance.
  • Citizen who is inspired to incorporate elements of the coaching approach into an existing program.  You will learn tools, best practices, and resources.
  • Youth inspired by Craig Trowhill’s story.  You will learn that you have within you the strengths and capacities to live true to who you are.
  • Educator or associated with Law Enforcement, Social Service, or Foster Care.  You will see how you can participate with the empowerment approach in your connections with youth.
  • Coach.  You will learn ways of applying your skills in community service.

Violet’s Vision

by Fran Fisher


In Violet’s Vision, Fran introduces you to Violet, the Guardian Angel of Vision.  She has been living with regret and humiliation for eons, hiding out in the Celestial Library dusting books.  In the past, she kept visions bright and shiny for people on earth to claim, but life on earth has deteriorated over time into chaos and frenzy.  In this sweet parable, Violet sets forth on her own hero’s journey to help the people on Earth and ultimately fulfills her own angelic purpose.
