Today’s blog post is for anyone who is building a team or has a team. During my coaching calls this week I noticed I was getting the same question: How do I get my people to do something?
Here is my mind blowing answer: Don’t.
Don’t try and get your people to do something. It’s not the best way to spend your time. Your Time should match their Effort.
Let me explain. By focusing on people who are not helping themselves, you are wasting your time. You are going to spend way too much time trying to get someone to do something with their business, when you could be out Prospecting, Sponsoring and Inviting new Market Partners. If someone is not putting in the effort why are you spending your time? The smartest thing you can do for your business is to match your Time with your team members Efforts.
♦ Here’s an example: I talked to 300 people about my business. 75 of those people came on board. Only 9 Leaders, direct to me, are now sharing this business and building their teams with other people. You can see there is power in the numbers! ♦
I have recently been introduced to Richard Bliss Brooke and I love him! (If you don’t know who he is, look him up and soak in some of his words) He said “For every deck of cards, you are going to get 4 Key Leaders out of there” He is so right! Spend your time with those Key Leaders… letting your time match their effort.
You may have people that have not done anything with their business but want to relaunch. Do a group team meeting and find out who those people are. Find out who wants to refocus and help them with that. Help them relaunch and get the 4 key things from them.
- Their WHY
What is their Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal. What do they want their business to do fo them.
2. 30 Day Monetary Goal
What will make them get out of bed in the morning excited. How much do they want to make in the next 30 days?
3. List Of 10
10 people that they will share their business with.
4. Launch and Ribbon Cutting
Schedule the date for the business kick off and invite as many people they can.
Get these 4 Key Things from them in the first 24hrs. Then you can see how serious they are. Your Time will match their Efforts.
Bottom line, Spend Your Time Wisely. Know where you are going to put in the work. Meet your efforts with other people who are putting in the work. Lock arms with them and have your time match their efforts.
Time well spent!
