Have you shared your insurance agency vision with your team?
If you’re not clear with your team about the future you have in mind for your insurance business. MAKE TIME NOW & COMMUNICATE IT.
We closed 2009 by focusing on the future of HometownQuotes. I can’t think of a better way to end the year and start 2010. Thanks to Bob and Hunter’s clear vision, we see what they see and we all have an understanding of the direction this ship is headed.
If you’re wondering where to start with your “visioneering”, start with yourself. As the owner and top decision maker of your insurance business, you have to know where you want to be in 3-5 years.
Ask yourself these questions:
In the next 5 years,
What will your yearly revenue be?
How many team members will you employ through your insurance business?
Who are these people?
What will your office space look like?
Where will it be located?
How many customers will you have on file?
How many prospecting meetings will you schedule each week?
Can you see the big picture? Now break it into 1 year increments. What do you need to do this year and the next and the next, and so on, to achieve that 5 year vision? When you think about it like that, the vision truly becomes much more doable and managing your team becomes that much easier.
What are you waiting for? Tell your team! Make sure they see what you see. For our next post we’ll talk about turning your vision into reality – accountability 101. Stay tuned!
