An interesting new research report suggests that they fundamentally value and prioritize different sales skills.

The research revealed that high performers:
- place more than twice the level of importance on developing business skills than other companies
- rate their sales organization as excellent or above average 3X more often in executive selling skills
- rate their sales organization as excellent or above average 4x more often in financial acumen
