You have all heard me talk many times about the importance of your team, hiring the right people, and having everybody working towards the common vision of the agency.  And you may also wonder if I actually walk the talk. If you have, then you will want to stay tuned.

I am excited to introduce you to one of our newest members of the UPP team, Anita Hernandez.  Anita was excited to come on and share the lessons that she has learned on her journey through the interview, the onboarding process, and her training within the UPP organization.

  • How the energy of UPP spoke to her as a person and from a business perspective
  • The support and strength she feels to create something worthwhile at UPP

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!
