Good sales people make a world of difference. Unfortunately, it is not easy to hire good sales people, and sales interviews can be deceiving. The Predictive Sales Preference Hiring Assessment helps mitigate the high customer, opportunity, and revenue costs associated with bad sales hires.
For instance, on average, sales people with “sales reluctance” cost companies 15 sales per month. Surprisingly “sales reluctance” occurs in 40% of veteran salespeople (5 years or more experience).
To help improve the odds, the sales assessment assists sales managers in selecting and cultivating talented sales professionals. The sales hiring assessment can be used by sales management as both a sales recruitment and sales development tool, offering insights into potential sales candidates and providing development insights for the current sales force.
It is designed to predict prospecting and new business development talent and to answer the following questions:

We recently hired LSA Global to help take our sales team to the next level. Specifically we focused on targeting the ideal client, differentiating our solutions, getting more qualified leads, and closing a higher percentage of our pipeline through a proven referral selling methodology.
So far, the results from the business sales training have been great. We were pleasantly surprised with the results-oriented approach and thoughtful follow-through plan to ensure that the new sales practices “stick.”
We look forward to a long-term relationship, and I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to increase the effectiveness of their sales force.

Sr. Director, Global Sales Enablement
LSA Global rocks! Thank you for helping our executive team get aligned by creating a powerful and clear strategic direction and go to market sales growth plan that we could all fully commit to.
From a sales growth perspective, I am really energized about the outcome and grateful for what I have learned throughout the strategic clarity facilitation process.
Originally, we launched a RFP to partner with a sales training provider to improve the sales skills of our global distributor network.
LSA Global challenged our thinking by suggesting we focus on the systemic sales strategy, culture, and talent factors that create sales success before we invested in the more symptomatic needs of sales skills and knowledge.
LSA Global identified the critical strategic actions to improve overall sales performance and then designed and delivered world class business sales training across the globe to help increase revenue and margin.
I’m so happy we took a more strategic approach to sales performance with LSA. Thank you for making this fit our culture.

I would recommend them to any sales leader who wants to drive sales performance.
