What if you could know how much a rep will sell BEFORE you hire? We do just that. Our clients hire better, achieve more revenue and productivity, and decrease attrition. Using our scientifically validated sales assessment tool - the Sales Call Reluctance® Assessment - you can find out how much reps will produce on a scale of 0 to 100, how soon they’ll start producing, and how difficult it will be to coach or manage them. The Sales Call Reluctance Assessment is a test that predicts behavior, not personality. Personality can predict a selling style, but behavioral predictions reveal what they will do once they’re given leads and faced with a quota. Additional applications include our Coach Camp, organizational diagnosis and sales rep training.
