If there’s one thing you can consistently learn from the show it seems to be how not to be a salesperson. But why is the show so good at forming terrible salespeople and what makes for a good one? Can sales training really teach you how to sell or should it come naturally?
Why the lack of empathy, guys?
Sticking a group of competing egotists in a house together for several weeks is hardly the sure-fire way to develop this skill.

Focus – to be fair, many of the contestants seem to be focused enough; focused on showing how utterly amazing they are at every possible role imaginable. Good sales people shouldn’t be expected to multi-task, it’s not what they’re built for – they are excellent at focusing on one single thing. Some call it the kill, some call it a sale, but they get things done. Again, ability in this area needs to be inbuilt. Training in sales can help but some people are better at multi-tasking than focus – other roles may suit them better.
