Every sales manager’s dream is to build or manage a team of highly productive sales professionals. But what exactly are the critical skills and traits of a top sales executive?

  • High personal energy and strong work ethic
  • An understanding of client issues and needs, and how to proactively develop relationships to address those needs
  • Ability to create ongoing profitability in existing accounts
  • Ability to cross-sell the entire product line
  • Knowledge and skills of where and how to call at all levels within a company
  • Ability to generate new business
  • Consistent ability to exceed company sales quotas
  • Loyalty and longevity with the company
  • A strong sense of purpose and belief in the value of their organization
