Why Should Your Employees Get Sales Assessment Tests?

Posted by Carole Mahoney  11/12/13 7:30 AM

Sales techniques are about building relationships. 

Every interaction your customer, clients, members, patients (whomever it is that your business exists to serve) have with you is a chance for your organization to add to the yes or no column in their mind. From how they find you to the first sales, from the delivery and service to the results they got with the product, everything is a yes or no.

Last week I talked with an entreprenuer who has a child with ADHD. I have heard many life and business coaches say that nearly every entreprenuer is, or has, some form of ADHD. I don't doubt I am one of those, even though I've never been diagnosed. (ask me sometime how long it took me to find an image for this blog! Not sure what ADHD is? Check out this funny video.)
