Sales Truths: Challenging Questions Get Qualified Employees

WHY IT IS TRUE: Prospective employees have heard all of the questions in previous interviews and come armed to give well-rehearsed, prepared answers.

PLAN OF ACTION: Questions such as: If you were offered this job, what makes you think you would be successful in it?… What skills or expertise do you feel you are still missing?… What would your critics say about you?… How do you motivate yourself to complete a task you don’t love?… Who inspires you and why? Ask these questions and watch their body language. Some will break eye contact, perhaps a shift in their seat, maybe fold their arms over their chest etc. Sales pros are comfortable, and answer questions with passionate convictions. Ask challenging questions, and you will get great people. — David Richardson

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
