Sales Behaviour links to Sales Success

Posted by Kieu Nguyen on Mar 24, 2014 8:30:00 PM

CEOs are investing more than ever in their sales forces, but results aren’t improving. To understand this disconnect, we observed sales professionals in live sales meetings. We discovered eight sets of sales behaviours. The bad news is that only three of them-accounting for a mere 37% of salespeople-were effective. What’s more, some of the behaviours of the remaining 63% actually drove down performance. But there’s good news, too: the eight sets represent behavioural tendencies, not set-in-stone personalities. Managers can effect changes in their current salespeople and recruit better team members in the future if they understand the eight sets of behaviours.

Posted by Kieu Nguyen on Dec 2, 2013 9:40:00 PM

Standardized interviews, questionnaires, complex scoring systems, background checks, drug tests and personality assessments — Corporate America has certainly engineered what should be a fool-proof process to help companies avoid hiring the wrong person.

Despite all of these processes and platforms, companies can still miss red flags in the hiring process, in fact, 66 percent of U.S. employers have been affected by a bad hire in the last year. And hiring errors come at a cost: a bad hire can cost a company as much as $50,000.

Luckily, picking up on warning signals is not difficult provided you practice keen observation and listening skills throughout the interview. Remember that a warning signal is not a 100 percent confirmation that there is a problem.
