What Our Clients Are Saying

Since partnering with SalesDrive, it has unified our metrics & standards in our recruiting process across our national footprint. The DriveTest® allows our training team to execute with a higher level of performance because the DriveTest® allows us to choose candidates with the unteachable characteristics, & that is Drive. In fact, our new hires outperform veteran reps, consistently quarter after quarter & we attribute a portion of that to hiring the candidates that have something inside of them that can’t be trained, & that is Drive.

If you are looking to eliminate the fluff riff raff and just interview and hire the most Driven of all candidates, I highly recommend getting on board with SalesDrive and Dr. Chris Croner. As a manager and mentor of salespeople for over 30 years, I can honestly say that Dr. Croner made my life’s work of searching for the Top Performers a lot simpler. SalesDrive is the filter I use in business to locate and hire the very best of sales people, plain and simple.

The Science Behind Our Sales Personality Test

What is Drive? Drive is the collection of three core personality traits that successful salespeople share: Need for Achievement, Competitiveness and Optimism. Studies show high-performing salespeople are high in Drive but the critical issue most people miss: Drive cannot be taught.

So you must determine which of the candidates who have applied for your open position are high in Drive, or everything else that follows… interviewing, hiring and training… are time and money wasted.

Non-Teachable Traits Assessed:

  • Drive
  • Need for Achievement
  • Competitiveness
  • Optimism

Teachable Skills Assessed:

  • Confidence
  • Persuasiveness
  • Relationship Skills
  • Organization

The DriveTest® Difference

Most personality tests are broadly developed for general usage, and then interpreted for salespeople. The DriveTest® has been developed for salespeople only.

Most salesperson assessment tests measure teachable skills, but teachable skills are moot without the non-teachable personality trait, Drive, to use them. We measure both, but start with the non-teachable aptitude including: Need for Achievement, Competitiveness and Optimism.

Sales personality tests are great, but when combined with a related behavioral interview they are even better. The DriveTest® and The Drive Interview® deliver both. This combination is critical to your hiring success.
