Good analytical skills. Be able to hear 200 individual pieces of information. Discard the 175 that have no bearing, and then tie the 25 pieces together into a compiling decision/path forward.

Patience: Not everything happens at the speed you would like. Push hard, don’t be afraid to voice your position, but know when to be patient. For this job you have to have an honest and real feel for customers. Who they are, what they want, where they buy, how much they spend, this allows you to target their needs better. The classic win/win, customer gets their needs fulfilled better and your company has a winning product.
