The Customer’s View of Salespeople

 

 

breifcase hugger

When Clients talk of a 'good' relationship with their Sales Executive or Account Manager they talk of their bringing value and minimising risk.

 

When I ask Clients, about what their 'preferred'
sales people actually do they reply understand

    • my situation,

    • my plans,

    • my doubts,

    • my opportunities.


 

 

 

The Client's expected outcomes were

  • Reduced or eliminated risk, by managing uncertainty 
  • Achieve personal goals and
  • Achieve Corporate Goals.

When I sit with CEO's, CSO's and CMO's  I hear them talk about

  • Out-dated strategy,
  • Failure to cooperate,
  • Weak development and
  • Poor product management,
  • working at cross purposes and
  • Short time horizons.

When I ask Top executives, what do they want in their salespeople?

  • Strategic
  • Solution orientated
  • Consultative
  • Value Seller
  • Experienced
  • High energy

So, Client's clearly state that Interpersonal Skills correlated to the bottom line,
yet we continue to recruit to “attributes”.
