Job Specific Competencies
Has a good understanding of product line features and benefits and uses that knowledge to optimize sales with each customer. Understands the product market and uses this knowledge to increase personal credibility and product sales. Keeps abreast of competitors’ activities and typically responds quickly to what the competition is doing. This is in contrast to missing opportunities due to a limited knowledge of features and benefits across the product line, a lack of understanding of the market, and/or a lack of attention to what competitors are doing.
Demonstrates strong selling skills by ability to prospect and qualify leads, identify customer needs, translate features to benefits, deliver effective demos, negotiate, and close sales. This contrasts with individuals who are unsuccessful at prospecting or qualifying leads, who neglect to identify customer needs, who have been unable to translate features to benefits, who conduct ineffective demos, and/or who miss opportunities to negotiate or otherwise do what else is necessary to close an adequate number of sales.
Personally demonstrates that external (or internal) customers are a high priority. Identifies customer needs and expectations and responds to them in a timely and effective manner. Anticipates and prevents delays or other things that can adversely affect the customer. Keeps customers informed about the status of pending actions and inquires about customer satisfaction with products or services. This is in sharp contrast to behavior patterns that tend to disappoint customers, leave them feeling forgotten and unimportant or that otherwise result in unmet needs or expectations.
Achieves results within established timelines. Understands and demonstrates that intentions, activities and results are not the same. Expects that obstacles will occur and refuses to use them as an excuse for not achieving results. This compares favorably to those who seek to justify poor results by describing intentions or activities, who get derailed by obstacles and fail to take effective steps to avoid or overcome them, and/or who frequently miss deadlines without giving a prior warning.
Quantity of Work
Produces an amount of work that meets or exceeds job expectations. Makes sure that quality does not suffer as the quantity of work increases. Works effectively with peers and carries own share of team workload. This contrasts with those whose output level is clearly below organizational needs, those who make unacceptable tradeoffs between quantity and quality, and/or those whose output is typically below that of others when they are placed on a team.
