Find salespeople who have what it takes to succeed in your fast paced, competitive environment. 

The five key things to consider when looking for the right people. video clip

Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult to find salespeople who can actually sell consistently year after year? 

Our research in working with hundreds of thousands of salespeople all over the world has proven that the selling profession requires qualities that not everyone has. The high turnover of salespeople in so many organizations simply reveals the difficulties in the sales hiring and selection processes. 

Start with the best people video clip

  • Jim Collins, in his best selling book "Good to Great," found that all great companies had great people. He also notes how hard it is to make the correct hiring decisions, noting that even the great make hiring mistakes.

  • Peter Drucker estimates that as many as 2/3 of hiring decisions may be mistakes, because most employee hiring decisions are made with inadequate information.

What if you are able to get the information you need and compare it to profiles of your top performers before tendering a job offer and making a hiring mistake?

The ROI of reduced turnover and better performance is compelling. The reason for high turnover is that approximately half the people hired for sales jobs should not have been hired; they had absolutely no chance of being successful. Only about a third of those with a chance for a successful sales career will achieve their potential because their skills are never properly developed or they are trying to sell the wrong product or service. 

What if all of your sales candidates had the characteristics of your top performers? video clip

The Profiles Sales Indicator is helping companies around the world identify sales people with the potential and experience for extraordinary success. When hiring salespeople, the objective is to hire only those who have the characteristics of your top performers. The challenge is to find an instrument that can assess those critical characteristics with a high degree of accuracy.

  • Profiles Sales Indicator assesses five key qualities for sales people such as competitiveness, persistence, and sales drive. 

  • It predicts seven critical sales behaviors including call reluctance, prospecting, and closing sales. 

  • Comprehensive reports give you an inside view of your existing salespeople, as well as sales candidates, to let you know those most likely to perform up to your expectations. 

  • Profiles Sales Indicator will also help you easily customize your sales training program to maximize the experience for each sales person.

The wrong people can't be motivated to do the right thing video clip
