How Is Your Sales Team Performing?

Sales handshake

Make a customer, not a sale.” – Katherine Barchetti

You have targets and quotas. You have current and potential customers, but sales figures are not meeting your expectations. Some of your team are doing superbly but others are under-performing. You like them as people and you know they have potential – and in today’s climate you can’t easily fire them!

The training they’ve had has brought limited results. One probable issue is that they’re using a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach and treating each customer the same way. When we see things through the customer’s eyes we increase our chances of success. It’s not simply a question of price or want but rather of understanding their perspective and outlook. Give them the information they way they need to receive it and you open the door to success. You also sow the seeds for a successful long-term business relationship.

It’s not about having the right opportunities. It’s about handling the opportunities right.” –Mark Hunter

Learning to recognize small but significant differences in each person and respond accordingly brings a change in results. With new skills your salesperson achieves more and exudes greater confidence. You’re happier as profits rise and your customers get better service.

Key visual cues provide insights into the personality and behaviour style of each customer. These cues reveal how best to communicate with your customer – and potential customer – as an individual. Learning those details and how to use them well makes a big difference to your bottom line.
