Successful sales leaders use personality assessments for hiring, but many of them stop at that point. What if there was an easy, low-cost way for sales leaders to not only discern aptitude for sales in new hires but also coach their current salespeople to increased productivity?
This Asher Sales Sense session with Christy Soderlund examines the pluses and minuses of different personality assessments and reveals how certain ones can also provide metrics and data to enable struggling salespeople to become productive and good salespeople to become even more productive. Listeners will learn about the importance of EQ in their sales teams and sales processes, how to “stretch” their personality traits, and how such techniques can be used to better connect with even the most difficult customers.
Host Kyla O’Connell and guest Christy Soderlund discuss how sales leaders can boost their sales teams and crush their sales goals. Christy is Director of Business Development and a sales trainer at Asher Strategies, specializing in the Advanced Personality Questionnaire (APQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ) development.
This program is an extract from a 20-minute program that explores personality assessment testing and the benefit it brings for successful sales teams.
