The POPT has an enviable record as an important part of selecting individuals who will be top performers and survive in highly competitive sales environments. A significant number of North America's most successful competitive sales management teams use the POPT as an integral part of their selection process.
The POPT has become the industry standard in much of the financial services sector because of its demonstrated predictive capabilities and its ability to identify the characteristics associated with strong sales performance. In addition, the POPT has been shown to improve retention significantly in sales cultures with high turnover.
Interpretation of the POP T
The POPT measures 8 separate character traits which include both the powerful and neutralizing aspects of personality. This allows for the formation of a profile which can be compared to norms for competitive selling. The profile created provides very useful information about the individuals fit to competitive sales.
In addition, the POPT measures self confidence and the individual's attitudes about prospecting, managing rejection and handling call reluctance. Some versions of the POPT also measure the individual's approach to managing his/her lifestyle effectively.
All these factors are presented in an easy to interpret fashion with selection questions and coaching suggestions included.
