The FinxS® Sales Competence assessments approach the diagnosis from different perspectives. The Sales Competence assessment measures:
- The agent’s current level of sales competence

- A salesperson’s preference for certain sales roles
- Role Fit between a salesperson’s current ability and the sales process
- The representative’s current level of sales competence
- Underlying sales mindsets
The Extended DISC® Sales 18 assessment draws on psychometric assessment in the context of the 4-quadrant model. It incorporates elements from the vast behavioural competency library in addition to the Sales 18 related competencies.
The combination of the two reports provide Sales Management information that is not available from any other source.
The FinxS® Sales Competence analysis can be adjusted to present reports related to the recruitment of salespersons or for the coaching of existing Sales agents.
