Behaviors tell us how an individual will perform the job. We analyzed which of the behaviors an individual should possess to perform well in the job of Sales Person. This is very important information to know in understanding communication styles.
The Top Three Behaviors are:
1. FREQUENT INTERACTION WITH OTHERS
The job requires a strong â€œpeople orientation,â€?versus a task orientation. The Job will comfortably deal with multiple interruptions on a continual basis, always maintaining a friendly interface with others.
The job calls for a high level of optimism and a â€œcan doâ€?orientation. It will require multiple talents and a willingness to adapt them to changing assignments as required.
3. FREQUENT CHANGE
The job requires a comfort level with â€œjuggling many balls in the air at the same time!â€?It will be asked to leave several tasks unfinished, and easily move on to new tasks with little or no notice.
Now that we have a clear picture of what the Sales Person Job looks like, I would like to ask you thisâ€?/P>

â€?If you are a company, how are you currently measuring the talent in your Sales Team today?
