Your future in sales might actually be more CRM than written in the stars but go on, everyone has a sneaky peek at their horoscope once in a while. Discover your unique selling style below:
Aquarius – crazy but brilliant, mad scientist
(Jan 20-Feb 18)
The crystal ball gazing type who’s full of big ideas, some brilliant, some a bit “mad scientist”. With a strong moral compass, this one doesn’t always get on with authority figures but, in a manager role, they know how to get the team behind them.
Pisces – artsy day-dreamer with client know-how
(Feb 19-Mar 20)
Beyond all that day-dreaming, Pisces’ creativity and artistic temperament enables them to tap into prospect needs and effortlessly hit their quotas.
Aries – passionate hard grafter
(Mar 21-Apr 19)
The ram is the guy to call on when you’re starting to lose faith in your performance. Aries is a passionate hard grafter who won’t let a deal go easily and can be a pretty inspirational example to the rest of their team.
Taurus – KPI-smashing entertainer
(Apr 20-May 20)
Energetic and endlessly fun, every team needs a Taurus. But it’s not all play and no work – the bull always takes KPIs by the horns and gets exceptional results. Pros? Insanely loyal. Cons? Not the biggest risk-taker.
Gemini – chatterbox with a cause
(May 21-Jun 20)
A great communicator and a natural closer, Gemini really does have the gift of the gab. Not a bad quality for a sales pro! This twins sign is far from two-faced though and will use their chatter to boost team morale.
Cancer – nurturing helper
(Jun 21-July 22)
Unlike the disease, Cancer just wants to help everyone, whether that’s going out of their way to help a client or handing over a hot lead to the struggling newbie. Pretty family-orientated.
Leo – real king of the sales jungle
(July 23-Aug 22)
Just like the king of the jungle, Leo is bold and can be a little dramatic. A true leader, the lion empowers their team and instils confidence in their customers.
Virgo – empathetic perfectionist
(Aug 23-Sep 22)
The perfectionist who’s prone to working overtime. Virgo might go a bit overboard at times but that’s only because there’s passion behind their work ethic. There’s a lot of empathy behind their relationships with their clients and their team.
Libra – zen peace-seeker
(Sep 23-Oct 22)
The balanced peace-seeker, Libras are great collaborators. They can clear up even major tensions and disagreements, negotiate with ease and rapidly restore harmony. Send all difficult clients their way.
Scorpio – intense bond-builder
(Oct 23-Nov 21)
Just like their scorpion counterparts, Scorpios can be intense – their performance depends on how they channel this intensity. Whether that means a laser focus on accelerating their pipeline or forming close bonds with clients and co-workers alike.
Sagittarius – ambitious adventurer
(Nov 22-Dec 21)
Sagittarius is the ambitious adventurer who’ll chase after even the least likely prospect. Overwhelmingly optimistic, archer signs are fearless on the sales floor and get the results to match.
Capricorn – master of discipline
(Dec 22-Jan 19)
Disciplined and practical, Capricorns are the real deal. They’re big thinkers, uber-organised and aren’t just thinking about their next deal. In secret, they’re already planning out 2020’s pipeline!
Every star sign has its own beautiful (and not so beautiful) quirks when it comes to closing that deal. For proper tips on social selling, securing your next mega-deal and stepping up your sales career that go beyond luck, stars and tarot cards, check out Nobul RS on LinkedIn.
