• Upbeat. A good business person is always 'up', because someone who exudes the right kind of confidence and success is likely to make a prospect feel 'up' too. Enthusiastic people embody hope, which is contagious. Signs of it will also help prospects and team members intuitively relax because a pessimistic approach is less likely to come from a person exhibiting buoyancy.
• Resilient. Being in business and handling rejection go hand in hand.
Anybody who can't be persistent and resilient when it comes to coping with adversity won't last long.
• Caring. Here the key is having the kind of empathy that builds rapport. Adroit people make prospects and team members feel as though they have an ally. There's no substitute for being likeable, caring and trustworthy.
