Question 1 of 30

What do you think your biggest weakness is in regards to sales?

"I've always been someone that can easily focus too much on details in a task. While this can sometimes be good in that I do combine an ability to see both small and big picture, I do at times get caught up in the smaller details which can then make it more difficult for me to work efficiently. I worked on this a lot in my last job and my supervisor and I actually had weekly meetings for a bit to help me work through this and it really helped me to find some solutions. Now I always make sure to make a daily to-do list. This helps me in making sure I focus on the big picture and my larger goals and making sure I meet those. It's something I've definitely improved on but a weakness I know I need to continually assess to make sure it's not affecting my work and meeting my goals."
