Only 1 in 5 Candidates has the Potential to be a Top Performer

 Take the Guesswork Out of Hiring Top Salespeople

The Predictor of Potential™ (POP7™) is a psychometric assessment tool designed to fill the essential role of integrating science into recruiting, selection and development of top-performing salespeople.

Hiring top performers is the lifeblood of any sales organization.

The biggest problem that managers face is identifying which candidate has the potential to be a top performer. Most salespeople are inherently good at selling themselves, and top performers don’t always stand out in an interview.

Despite good interviewing skills, many sales managers are guilty of making these hiring mistakes.

  • Hiring people, they like
  • Settling for mediocrity to fill the vacancy
  • Hiring experienced and industry knowledge over attitude
  • Lack of a systematic process
  • Not leveraging the power of science

Do your sales managers have the tools and processes to systematically identify top sales performers from those who are pretenders. Identifying the difference is challenging!



Your Hiring Process is Key

Success in attracting and selecting, and hiring top performers depends more on a company’s process or system than on the manager’s ability.

Without a clear process, your sales managers will adopt their own approach and ultimately achieve sub-optimal results. Like most companies, some process exists in-house that is sort of known and sort of used. Thus, the source of mediocre results.

Four principles associated with a top-notch hiring process:

  1. Having a systematic process
  2. Knowing what top performers look like
  3. Having assessment tools to make scientific decisions
  4. Your process is rigorously followed

The Hiring Process Should Consist of 3 Equally Important Components

  1. Fit Interview
  2. Behavioural Interview
  3. Scientific Assessment
