Episode 182: The Vault Revealed

Back by popular demand, Joel joins me again this time for a share and tell session about things going on inside of the UPP circles.  Listen as we talk about onboarding, leadership, culture and designing your ideal client.  And if that is not enough, we are going to share a secret that we have never publicly disclosed before!

Highlights:

  • At the interviewing table is where the war for marketplace talent is won.
  • It’s leadership not “like”ership. You team will like you when you do what’s right for them and the agency.
  • Culture is the invisible architecture of your business.
  • If you can’t repeat your KPIs at any moment, then you are not paying enough attention to them.
  • You can multitask but you cannot multi focus.
  • Who are you going to promote to if you don’t know who you’re sending it out to?
  • After you bring in a new client, you should welcome them like nobody else’s business.
  • What does UPP have to that is specifically designed for you to make you stand out from everyone else in the marketplace?

 

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