I’ve been working at Dexatel for over three years and it seems like just yesterday I came for an interview. Funnily enough, I actually applied for a job opening in the Network Operations Center department. But, as life would have it, I somehow ended up at the right place in the Sales department as a Business Development Manager of Dexatel OU.
The first thing that made me fall in love with the company is that they understood my abilities better, so when I was offered a different position, I knew that this was the company for me: three years and still going strong!
It’s very important to understand that as a Business development manager, there are certain skills that need to be turned into habits. What helps most, is that you should be a calm and reasonable person. Each client is a different person with different ways of thinking and working style, so as a professional you should give full attention to your customers.
Over the years I’ve gained a lot of experience that helps me pass on my knowledge to others and guide new Sales team members in turn. It’s satisfying to close a deal, but it’s also amazing to guide your team in their journey. Remember, that you are the one working towards the outcome that your attention should be directed to. You are working towards a purpose and what you do affects the company directly.
From my own experience, I realized that there are basic competencies that a Business development manager or, one to be, should have. Let’s have a look at a few fundamental ones, shall we!?
I always strive to learn new things and open more horizons in order to be in the game. My next goal is to become more successful at my job; a great sales manager should be able to design and communicate the firm’s vision with the sales team, think critically and come up with the best ways and strategies to achieve the company’s sales objectives. The more you learn, the more you will achieve and hence pass your knowledge to others.
A knowledgeable sales team will be able to make wiser decisions, plan effectively, and allocate resources based on customer needs. So, I intend to become a team leader. I enjoy working with others and guiding them throughout their journey. Inspiration, innovation and guidance are the skills that serve me for the long-hall and the willingness to learn is a trait that each employee must adhere to.
