  1. 1 out of 5 sales people I have worked with as true rainmakers sounds high. Few people can be given an agressive goal, and nothing else, and achieve that goal only due to their personal efforts, innovations, adjusting their plan until the goal is met. I tbelieve less than 1 out of 5 have the Top Rainmaker Skills listed above. Especially for executives who have been the sole rain maker in their company, the challenge to identify new rainmakers is key to sustainable long term market growth. They help the company adjust to market dynamics by sensing new customer buying patterns before markets shift (today online/virtual events as only viable offer is 1 example). I believe true rainmakers are rarer than forecast in the article, and finding / keeping them is more important than amplified in this article.

    1. Dan,

      Thanks for your comment. 1 of 5 as sales people as rainmakers IS high and maybe I should edit the article so that is more clear. The point I am trying to make is that true rainmakers are rare, and if you can find one, you should do everything you can to attract and keep them. Appreciate you amplifying MY points!
