Will your Sales Candidate commit to their answers?

On the SPQ Gold Sales Call Reluctance assessment, there is a measurement that will reveal whether your sales candidate will fully commit to the answers they give or whether they will hedge.  George Dudley and Shannon Goodson, world-renowned behavioral scientists found through their research of salespeople over the past 30+ years, that the top producers will give committed, definitive answers on assessments.

Further, in comparing the very top producers and the very low producers, the hedging score was #1 in the differences of the two.

Fear is tucked away in hedging.  If a sales candidate is hedging, they are attempting to consciously or subconsciously hide some type of fear.

How valuable would a pre-hire assessment be to you if it revealed strengths as well as self-imposed limitations?
