What's new at Priam Inc

Marketing professionals identify the strategies and techniques used to attract customers to a business. They determine the pricing based on product demand and supply, help maximize a firm’s profits, and grow market share for a business. They also aid in new product development and critique market trends. Similarly, branch managers are employees who oversee the operations of a particular branch and ensure success.

Hiring an experienced branch manager makes sense as they are likely to have worked in similar situations, under similar stress levels, and can back up their work. Opting to work with a competent sales and marketing professional rather than attempting DIY solutions has the added benefits of creating an ideal work environment and ensuring the project is completed on time.

However, when it comes to finding the right manager, you may see yourself struggling, given the number of splendid individuals ready to join today. To help reduce your struggles, here’s a list of the top five things we consider when hiring a branch manager to take our company further.

1. Mental toughness
Stress, pressure, challenge and opportunity are consistent features of everyone’s lives. Similarly, in the field of sales and marketing, those who aspire to provide leadership have a heightened sense of the stressors and pressures of work and life. Thus to succeed in offering leadership, you need to bring mental toughness and fortitude to ensure they can do the necessary in a consistent fashion.

2. Drive
While exciting and highly progressive, sales and marketing can require patience and a drive to succeed to help push you forward when times get rough. A drive to be successful will ensure you don’t accept the status quo of mediocre existence and always do whatever it takes to complete the task at hand to the best of your abilities.

3. Character
When it comes to being a leader, competencies determine what a person can do. Commitment determines what they want to do, and character determines what they will do. Character is thus equivalently foundational for effective decision-making. 

4. Leadership skills
Well-rounded leadership skills increase efficiency and productivity, reduce employee turnover, foster good communication and relationships and reduce the risk of leader burnout. A good leader will be able to bring out the best abilities in team members and motivate them to work together to achieve a shared goal. Additionally, an individual with leadership skills is generally also organized and keeps the team on track and focused on avoiding delays.

5. Initiative
Finally, the ability to assess and initiate actions independently or what we call initiative, is essential not just for those in leadership positions but for all involved in business and enterprise. A branch manager who takes the initiative will help their team and organizations to innovate, progress and overcome competition, and have the ability to spot and take advantage of opportunities that others pass by.
