It’s the “ability to create something meaningful out of esoteric or everyday products,” as Carmine Gallo writes in The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs. He offers up the following examples:

Apple CEO Steve Jobs did not sell computers. He sold tools to unleash human potential.

Cisco CEO John Chambers does not sell routers and switches that make up the backbone of the Internet. He sells human connections that change the way we live, work, play, and learn.
