Team leaders, business builders, managers…whatever you are called in your company…listen up!
Take a moment to think about what your individual skills are. If you are a top recruiter, excellent at sales or great at motivating and inspiring others. No matter what your skill is, wouldn’t you agree that it is nothing if you can’t pass it on to those on your team or in your organization? Break it down into pieces. What exactly do you do? I am so sick of hearing people say, “I don’t know, I don’t do anything special.” Yet they recruit 100’s or are one of the top 10 in sales of the company they are in. The first thing that comes to my mind is this person is withholding information because she has the false belief that if she shares her “secrets” then she will no longer be a hot shot or she is just not very bright.
There are several things a leader needs to be able to do:
- Break things down into simple, manageable steps for the newbie.
- Teach the steps in chronological order.
- Keep the excitement without overwhelming the newbie with too much information
- Put on an informative and fun meeting.
- Realize that the more duplicatable you and your success are, the faster your team will find success.
The leader who trains, supports and motivates will find her team not only sticks around, but quickly rises to success as well.
Some of my favorites are:
- Sending out email campaigns to the newbies. I call them Digests and they cover important tips like what is necessary to take to the party, hostess coaching tips, how to book parties, a script for what to say when announcing their new business, how to process credit cards, etc…
- Fun meetings geared around a theme or series. Some I have done are Back to Basics Boot Camp, 7 Habits of Highly Successful Distributors, and Gray’s Anatomy. Really, almost anything that is mainstream (TV shows, movies, current affairs) can be made into a meeting.
- Teleconferences for the team or company wide. I use www.freeconferencecall.com for my teleconferences.
- Team newsletters with links to pertinent articles, videos, audios. Do a search on google or ask.com for your topic. You’ll be amazed what comes up!
