Relationship Building – Salespeople in Account Development build effective long-term professional interactions with others based on trust: trust that they will always work toward the best interest of those involved and that they are sufficiently competent to provide positive results.
Active Listening – They enhance mutual understanding in communicating with others by expressing genuine interest in, and providing full attention to, the content and meaning of others’ messages.
Information Seeking – They are driven by an underlying curiosity and desire to know more about things, people, or issues. This involves going beyond routine questions and includes digging or pressing for exact information; resolving discrepancies by asking a series of questions; or conducting less-focused environmental scanning for opportunities or miscellaneous information that may be used in the future.
Influence and Persuasion – Salespeople in Account Development are effective in persuading, convincing, influencing, or impressing others in order to get them to support a specific agenda, make a specific type of impression, or take a specific course of action.
Negotiating – They identify key bargaining points for all parties and work effectively toward win-win solutions.
Composure and Resiliency – They are able to deal effectively with pressure, maintain focus and intensity, and remain optimistic and persistent, even under adversity. They have the ability and propensity to recover quickly from setbacks, rejections, and conflicts and to maintain self-control in the face of hostility or provocation.
Organisational Savvy – They gather and accurately assess information related to the organisation’s formal and informal communication channels and power relationships.
Time Management – They focus on completing all work tasks in a timely manner while remaining responsive enough to react to competing demands and shifting priorities.
