Is It All About You?

is it all about youIf you could join an opportunity and start recruiting people right away or start generating tons of leads every single day, do you think you might find a little success? Of course you would and it is possible.

How?

The Formula For Successful Team Building

Goes like this, figure out what the needs of those involved within your niche are and fill those needs. Sounds easy, but amazingly enough most people don’t get this part. Much of the time the effort that you put forth is not really for other people, but for yourself.

People that you talk to on the phone or in person will figure out if you have an agenda or not, just by the little cues you throw out there. If you ever find yourself in a conversation with someone and you are thinking about how to insert a point about your latest and greatest opportunity into the exchange then you probably aren’t really listening, are you?

So often we sign up to a program or opportunity all excited about the buckets of money we are going to make hitting up everyone we see on our meteoric rise to the top of the heap only to realize after a few days or a couple of weeks that people really don’t want to hear our crap. What? You don’t want to learn how to make money???

Of course, people want to learn how to make money, they just don’t want to hear it from you right now. Why? Because your focus is not on them and their situation or their problem – your focus is on yourself, it’s all about you!

How do we change this?

Understanding Human Nature

First, let’s be honest. In just about every business out there online right now we are involved with other people, so it would make sense that we need to learn how to deal with people. We might even need to like one or two of them!

Let’s start by that listening thing. Do you “actively” listen to someone when they are talking? Do you ask questions, open ended questions, about their life? This IS a start.

No Agendas

Stop trying to figure out an angle to introduce them to the plan. Rather than take a business card and ask if they are interested in making money while handing it to them, tell them you enjoyed the conversation and give it to them because you would like to know more – and be sincere. If you don’t like this person, DON’T GIVE THEM A CARD OR A PHONE NUMBER OR AN EMAIL ADDRESS! Kids do this all of the time, sure you can too.

If you do listen, think of how you can help that person. If it’s not financial, don’t offer a financial solution. Sometimes people just want to know that there is another human out there paying attention to them.

This doesn’t just translate into face to face meetings, it also comes across with the social sites like facebook and what not. Are people speaking with you or at you online? What are your online communication habits?

Put yourself and your issues behind others when you are texting or sending out messages to people. If you are “chatting” with someone online, don’t have ten chats going on at once. Focus on the one, stop focusing on yourself and what you need to become successful.

Building Relationships and Success

If you do this, you will be seen as a professional who cares – and you really will. You will build a level of trust between your prospects and your team and develop a sense of loyalty that is required for successful team building.

And with this success, you will find success with your business opportunities and in goal accomplishment as well.
