What does it take to be a good channel salesperson?

In this latest video interview with Dave Davies I looked to get to the bottom of what it takes to be a great salesperson VS. what it takes to be a great channel management salesperson.
In practice, the two are very different!
People in channel management sales roles need to have really good people skills and be really strong influencers. Unlike a sales manager, you can't hire and fire your salespeople. You aren't directly selling to clients yourself. So winning over and motivating your channel partners is key - and that's a distinct skillset from what you might look for in a strong salesperson.
Really helpful distinctions made here - and if you've any observations of your own to add, we would love to hear them!
