There are thousands upon thousands of people in a top producers business, and to be quite honest, they need every one of them to make the money they are making. But what if they could get those members that are “lazy” to start producing in their business?
How To Deal With The Lazy Or Uninterested Member
Should they start to give them advice that isn't necessarily in a positive spirit?
Do you change how you go about dealing with people that are not producing?
I, personally think that this is an area that many make the mistake of trying to “encourage” these people, rather than being the type of person that just goes and steps into the leadership role by recruiting more people. Leadership by example.
The first thing you'll need to change is removing the word lazy from your vocabulary. It's not like they are going to do something different than what you have preconceived them to do. For instance, if you have a neighbor that is very grouchy or just messy – you could insert anything that is really not that desirable of a trait to have.
Joe, in this case, is quite grouchy and he's walking towards you in your front yard. What's the first thing that comes out of your mouth?
“Oh, No! Here comes grumpy Joe and I do not like dealing with him when he comes around.”
You are essentially giving him or her a destiny to live up to whether you want that or not. Your words are very powerful because your subconscious listens to you 24hours a day. So what you can change about this situation is simple.
Start to say things that are life giving rather than speaking negativity. This one change alone will give you the change in your business that you're looking for in a quicker fashion.
Lazy becomes the possibility marketer
Now if you're going to foster a great relationship with these marketers that haven't produced any results, you might as well start encouraging them and when they come to you asking about building a business, you can respond with some homework.
Give them something to do that is going to help them get off the floor of their business and get some action started.
If network marketing is the venue, then tell them to go prospect 5-10 new people that are not friends or family.
If they are in internet marketing, have them message at least 25 people and come back with results of 10 or more responses and how the conversations went.
Most likely they will attempt to do the assignment and then not get back to you for one of many reasons. It's ok that they do that. Just keep loving on them and building them up by affirming who they are becoming.
Believe in them!
