One thing about my role as a coach is I love to see improvement.
So if someone reveals a weakness to me, I’m not gonna just “let it go.”
I’m going to confront them and challenge them to make things better.
Such was the case recently with one of the Rockstar team leaders in our Team+ coaching program.
When Wayne, NJ’s Karen Peters admitted to me her team was struggling to make their calls, I asked if they were up for a challenge.
Karen now tells me those words struck a “panic” within her.
But to her credit, she took on that challenge and rallied her team to follow suit. She told her four buyer’s agents and admin staff, “If we’re going to do this, we have to be all in. We can’t let Tom down.”
And now just four weeks in, their results have Karen proposing they take the challenge even further!
Here’s My Challenge
What I proposed to Karen is actually quite simple (not easy, but simple): 90 consecutive days – not counting weekends and holidays – of conducting their “Hour of Power” calls until each member had six conversations… with NO EXCUSES!
They started at the beginning of the year, and they’re committed to doing this until April 16th.
What do you think… could you do it?
Here’s some evidence why you might want to follow Karen’s lead…
She and her team have already closed 11 transactions this month and they have 23 more under contract!
They set 28 new appointments by following up with old leads!
Where Karen was once fearful of this challenge, she now says, “It’s actually been great!”
Zoom-ing Toward Their Best Year Ever
Karen and her team finished 2020 with a personal best of 135 transactions for a total of $1.52 million in GCI.
They set their goals even higher for 2021.
With the pandemic preventing them from all being in the office, they meet on Zoom for a quick “huddle” every day at 8:55 a.m. Then at 9:00, it’s “game on” with each of them making their calls.
They remain on Zoom so they can watch each other, encourage each other, and exchange notes in the chat. Karen’s admin staff even jumps in to cheer them on with handmade signs!
For the first 45 minutes, they focus on following up on buyer leads generated from Zillow.
Then for the next 15 minutes, they call their geo farm street by street seeking seller leads. (Since the beginning of this commitment, Karen has also already called ALL of her past clients from each of the last three years. Have you?)
The results of all this effort have been so encouraging, Karen has recently proposed that her team actually ADD additional time to their call sessions!
Imagine that: What seemed like a daunting task just four weeks ago is already something Karen is looking to push further!
