Reaching Your Highest Potential

Reaching Your Highest Potential

Get ready to take advantage of some serious momentum, leaders. After a legendary Coach Summit and Super Saturday, possibilities are everywhere. How can you seize the moment and inspire your Team to reach their full potential? For the answer we turn to who else, but EVP, Global Sales, Jeff Hill. Jeff has specific tips and tactical ideas to get everyone locked in for the rest of the year—and beyond!

 

Q. What advice do you have for leaders to maximize the momentum from Summit, Jeff?
A.
You must lead from the front. It’s the principle of “seeing a sermon versus listening to a sermon.” It’s the DeWitt Jones theory of “putting yourself in the place of the most potential and then bringing great technique.” Team Cup is also a must. It’s the most fertile, productive place to teach great technique to your Teams while creating positive results. Here’s what we know from studying the results in Team Cup months: those with the most engaged Teams see the most lift, volume and momentum.

Q. How should leaders motivate their Downlines to reach their highest potential?
A.
First, share best practices and insights of what’s working and what isn’t working—on a daily basis. Your Teams want to know you’re engaged with them. Second, intentionally and thoughtfully recognize their wins. Third, let them know what you do specifically to get lift when you or your Team is in a funk. And lastly, encourage them to fail big!

Q. How should Coaches leverage the 3 Vital Behaviors to achieve their goals?
A.
There’s always “good, better and best”, right? The best behaviors will drive the greatest results. By narrowing your focus on the Vital Behaviors (there’s a reason why we call them ‘vital”) and giving yourself permission to put the other good activities on the backburner, you’ll have more energy and clarity in driving your business. Channeling or compressing your energies will give you more power. It’s also contagious!

Q. Talk about what Coaches can do now to set them up for success in 2016…
A.
No new science here, but the goal is to identify where you will end 2015, (just five months away) and then reverse engineer through the end of the year. You should also engage in the same process for where you’ll be by Summit 2016. “Reverse engineering” will clearly identify what you have to do to achieve your goals. Then there’s the biggest one of all: START!

Q. How can the Leadership Ladder contribute to business success?
A.
Serious business builders always want to know best practices and benchmarks for achievement. That’s exactly what the Leadership Ladder provides—solid benchmarks to work toward. Remember that the “why” behind these markers is to provide you with a stable, predictable, and profitable business.

Q. What are your plans to reach your highest potential in the next year?
A.
Way to put me under the magnifying glass! The bottom line is; I don’t need to work harder, but I do need to work smarter. I need to develop my strengths and invest in becoming a better and stronger leader. How will I know if I’m successful? Because I’ll have some scrapes and bruises from putting myself out there. Go big or go home, right? To contribute at a level worthy of helping us achieve what we’re capable of, I have to get better.
