Spending time with new members is critical to helping them understand the components to being a successful Wellness Advocate, but most people can’t handle it all at once, so break it up. We tend to start off with the oils and get them to enroll. Give them just enough information about their membership and LRP so that they know what it is, but save the next level of detail for a follow-up session.
We recently started wearing some purple T-shirts that say, “Awesome.” Most of our team responds with happy surprise when they see them, but it always leads to a positive discussion and ideas about how they can make their day awesome. Our recent weekly call focused on lessons learned from Star Wars and how they can be used in our business. The point is, when working with your team, it is critically important to keep things light and fun. Yes, there are some serious discussions we have to have, but after that, wipe some frosting on their nose and draw a smiley face on their dirty bumper. Always talk up to your downline, and if you need to, talk down to your upline. Try to share something new about one of our great products, turn it into a story, and share it more than once so that it sinks in with your whole team. Stories resonate well with everyone and tend to get passed on many times over. They are a powerful tool that gets people involved. If you can keep it light and fun, the force will be with you, always.
