Selling Non-system for the Spontaneous and the Creative

Selling systems work great for those organization that thrive on structure and order. Some businesses and their leaders naturally gravitate towards systems and structures. They are linear thinkers and love order and step-by-step logic in everything they do. They love the predictability and control that a system seems to provide.

But what if you are a lateral thinker who leads a spontaneous, upbeat organization that thrives on creative spirit and spontaneity? You may have discovered that when taken too far, free creativity can become chaotic. Even Picasso needed canvas to express his genius.
