Women who exhibit the following five traits are apt to be the most successful in the world of sales.
Agility means the ability to be nimble and efficient in getting things done right the first time and knowing when it’s time to move on.
2. Communicate effectlively
This refers to understanding your audience and their needs and allows you to process information and negotiate a deal more successfully — whether it be with a business partner, colleague or teammate.
Good sales professionals know when it’s time to hold their position and when it’s in the best interest to find common ground and compromise.
Successful sellers have short memories and enough determination to keep going even after failure.
Finally, great sellers have the ability to look at every situation from the perspective of their customers, and use that knowledge to create a win-win situation where everyone benefits.
