to do when a new recruit is floundering
You are bound to recruit someone
who for whatever reason just isn't reaching their potential for themselves
or for the company. Yet how to set these recruits on the path to success
can be hard for their sponsors.
When a new recruit doesn't
seem to be doing well with their new business, either because they have
a lot of questions and not enough answers, or they are suffering from
a case of "buyer's remorse", these recruits need a bit more
TLC than most. And yes, some of these recruits can turn into your best
recruits, with just a little bit of extra time.
Design a sheet with all the
"everything you wanted to know about Company but were afraid to ask"
with answers to questions, even dumb ones they might be too afraid to
ask. This worksheet will be handy to help future floundering recruits
as well, so spend some time doing a worthwhile job on it, and also ask
your own upline any questions you might not think of.
Ask someone from home office
to give them a phone call. Sometimes all they need is to talk with someone
who has all the answers they need, or get a pep talk from one of the cheery
voices at the home office who are trained in dealing with just this kind
Offer to go with them to their
first couple of parties to give a helping hand. Don't do the party for
them, but be there for moral support and answering questions they might
have as you run the party.
When you follow these steps,
you can help these floundering recruits go on the path to success.
