Trait Sales Profile

The Sales Assessment and Recruitment Tool

Used in the recruitment and development of sales people, the Trait Sales Profile (TSP) is a quick, accurate and easy to use profiling tool that measures the 6 critical traits essential for sales success.

By assessing drive, ambition, focus and motivation, and response to setbacks, opportunities, problems and customer needs, this powerful tool can transform the way your sales function performs.

The test takes just 10-15 minutes to complete before producing an easy-to-read report, which serves as a comprehensive guide on screening, interviewing and developing sales professionals.

Scientifically proven and validated

TSP is the result of extensive research and development led by Professor Stephen A. Woods, leading authority on personality, and a renowned team of work psychologists at Aston Business Assessments.

As a result of extensive evaluations on sales people, our research demonstrated that TSP is reliably accurate in predicting sales performance and traits essential for building sales networks and business development.

Real-world results

In our scientific studies and real-world use of the tool, we have demonstrated the value that TSP can bring to those recruiting for sales positions. Specifically, TSP has demonstrated that an organisation can be up to four times more likely to recruit someone who will be a top performer.

How it works

Designed by science for business, TSP measures six key characteristics and critical elements of personality that impact on sales performance

Social and Interpersonal Style

Team-working, social style, and interpersonal effectiveness

Emotional Style

Control, perception and expression of emotion at work, and ability to cope with pressure

Motivation and Positivity

Organizing Style and Dependability

Rule-following, planning, and commitment to delivery

The TSP report has been designed to specifically assess 6 key areas relevant for sales effectiveness:

  • Positivity and Resilience
  • Drive for Performance
  • Sales Process Management
