Whether you are a small business owner, influencer or network marketer with the desire to grow a strong team — this post is for you.
We are going to give you 4 simple things that we personally execute regularly and, have seen others create breakthroughs as a result of implementing them too.
Let’s get started.
4 Simple Things to Help you Grow a Strong Team
First, don’t assume that the people you bring into your business are going to be as serious about it as you. See, we can’t put our expectations on others — this happens far too often and as a result we see people let down or discouraged (totally avoidable).
It’s important to meet people where they’re at. Many times, people aren’t ready get started right away and, that’s OK. Sometimes people want to feel out the products or services, right? Or, maybe they want to explore the culture and company before they dive right in.
Be the doorway not the destination.
Let’s be honest … who knows who these same people will lead you to — or, they may pull you through a doorway that will teach you new perspective, skills, etc. Do yourself a favor and take the pressure off yourself by removing the expectations you’re putting on others.
Push vs. Pull
What does that mean? Well, in order to grow a strong team you want to learn how to ask the right questions.
- What are they passionate about?
- Why are they even looking at the business?
- Where do they feel like they could be in 6 months?
Find out more about them!
Unfortunately, we often get caught in a space of telling them what they think they want to hear. And truth is, they probably don’t even want to hear the stuff you’re telling them. Why? Because, we get in their face — because we’re focused on the sale or sign up instead of the person in front of us.
Ask yourself this; are you pushing or are you pulling?
Do not forget to recognize people regularly.
Ever feel like the only time you are seeing people being recognized is at these big events or higher income levels? We have seen it happen far too much and what we would encourage you to do is celebrate people for their first customer, their first dollar earned in their business or, maybe they’ve learned a new skill or did their first Facebook Live.
Whatever makes the most sense for your business get in the habit of celebrating the small wins! Because guess what? Small wins LEAD to big wins and, when people feel appreciated and celebrated they stay around a whole lot longer.
The power of retention, right?
Recognize Actions, NOT Just Results
This one might sound a little funny but stop trying to motivate all the time. Focus more so on inspiring others. When you go to work on your business and achieve results and/or create stories to share YOU are showing them that the system works.
Demonstrate through your actions how results can be/are achieved.
By inspiring others through your own actions, you show them that anyone can truly make it happen.
So ask yourself this; are you motivating or are you inspiring?
