Episode 117: Your Mindset is Your Skillset

Today we are going to delve into the mindset.  Your mindset influences how you think, feel, and behave in any given situation.  I want to talk to you about how your mindset can be your greatest skill set and how the things I have done sharpen and enhance mine.

Highlights:

  • The importance of feeding your mind
  • Plan your day the day before in order to help your subconscious be ready before the day begins
  • Creating a positive habitual routine
  • Being your best self requires getting an adequate amount of rest
  • The 8 by 8 by 8 thought process
  • You are the result of the five people that you hang around with most
  • Having an accountability partner to keep you on task
  • Learn to let go of the things that you are worried about, they rarely happen

 

Until next time, get out there and make a difference, be unstoppable, and leave no regrets!

Episode 115: Coach ‘Em Up Or Coach ‘Em Out

So, you have hired the best applicant for the position. But just because they were the best does not mean that they need little training and coaching.  In this week’s episode, I discuss what the onboarding process should look like including training and evaluation.  This is all-important because you will need to determine whether there is potential for growth within the agency or if you need to release them back into the marketplace.

Highlights:

  • You have hired however you still need to be recruiting, never stop
  • After hiring there are different phases to put your new recruit through; training, motivation, and accountability.
  • The 10,000-foot view of the insurance business, what it is, and the tools used to implement this training
  • Creating short term, mid-term, and long-term expectations for new team members
  • Utilizing checklists for getting them started in your agency
  • Assigning various mentors to train on different days so as not to tax the demands of your other employees
  • A look at the first few weeks of training, with both expectations and accountability being evaluated
  • Identifying areas of needed improvement to determine whether you are continuing with them or termination

 

Until next time, get out there and make a difference, be unstoppable, and leave no regrets!

  • The Personal Accountability Model: when everything goes well it is easy to hold accountability but when they go wrong, people feel overwhelmed and ignore what needs to be done.

  • Anticipating, planning, and adapting to changes.
