Presentation: “Personality Style 101”
• It’s important to know a prospect’s or client’s personality style so we know what they like, what they don’t like, what to say, when to say it, and how to say it. 
• We can know why they buy, why they don’t, and what will motivate them to buy. 
• Most importantly what activities in their career will multiply their personal effectiveness and the ones that are hard, annoying, lame and frustrating to them.
