Females Make Better Salespersons Than Males
Despite an under representation of women in the sales industry, women make better salespeople than men. A study reported by a Forbes article states that 70% of women reach their sales quotas compared to 67% of men.
That fact is mainly due to three reasons. The first reason is that females have better listening skills when compared to males. While you might think that the smooth talker is the one more likely to close a deal, it is the one whole listens the most that will end up closing a sale. A buyer is more persuaded to buy if they perceive they are being heard.
Second, females have higher emotional intelligence than males. Higher emotional intelligence relates to a higher ability to recognize, understand, and manage one’s emotions and those of others. Studies show that salespeople with high EI outperform those who exhibit moderate levels of EI by 50%.
Third, females prefer working in teams more than men. They opt for team-based compensation while most men prefer to work alone. The tale of the lone wolf is drawing to extinction, and the most effective sales rep are choosing collaboration over competition.
Bella is the go-to person for sales training for women as well as the leader in providing women sales professionals in the country. She is the best at what she does; she has been since the age of eight.
