A BREAKTHROUGH CUSTOMIZED PROGRAM OF CHANGE TO BE

What makes good sales and customer service people today?

Evidence from top-performing salespeople across the globe has shown that the modern salesperson is characterised by: 


1. Modesty and humility - you are no longer the focal point; instead, you position your team that will help you win an account at the centre.


2. Conscientiousness - you take command of the sales process so that you control your destiny.


3. Results-focused - you develop customer-driven strategies that align your products to their needs, instead of talking about the functionalities of your products.


4. Curiosity - you ask your customers challenging questions to close information gaps and gain interesting insights for win-win solutions.


5. Professional Relationships - you keep the right distance with your customers to ensure they follow your recommendations and advice and they don't take advantage of a friendly relationship.


6. Positive mindset - you are able to handle emotional disappointments, learn from failures and be open to change and the challenges that go with it.


7. Aggressiveness - you are action-oriented and feel comfortable fighting for your cause.
