There is value in treating your team like your own clients. How do you bring world class value to the people who work for and with you? What is the agent-in-training program and how does it help people find their roles? What are the three pillars you can build into your team recruitment? On this episode, we are joined by Todd Tramonte, who shares on team management and using radio as a direct response marketing tool.

You can only do branding on the back of direct response and lead generation -Todd Tramonte

Takeaways + Tactics

- Put people in specific roles where their "stress-response" is the right response for their role.

- Use an "Agent-in-Training" model to help people get into their proper role and make mistakes in a low-pressure environment.

- Before you provide leads to team members, you need to decide what kind of team you want.

At the start of the show, Todd shared on his systems, and how he identifies people’s spectrum of giftedness. Next, we talked about the agent-in-training program and why it’s so important to help people fit into where they are most talented and effective. Todd also talked about how his company uses radio for direct response and not for branding. Towards the end of the show, he shared on targeting through radio.

We also spoke about:
- The three pillars he puts into his recruitment
- Serving and delivering value as a leader
- How to lead companies that people love staying in

When it comes to recruiting the right people, it helps if people start out with that desire and hustle on their own. There’s always an opportunity if someone is great. As a leader, you have a responsibility to provide value to your team members, and looking at team members as clients you have to serve and deliver value to, not because you’re afraid of losing them but because it’s your duty as a leader. If you lead your company this way, people are going to love working with you.

How to Get Over 30 Listings a Month Without a Single Outbound Call w/Jan Pitman

The three reasons people get into business are the very three reasons they fail out so quickly. How do you make sure the freedom actually leads to productivity? How do you find your highest leverage when it comes to time? Why is it so necessary to commit to some kind of schedule? On this episode, Jan Pitman shares her expertise and goes into detail about going from agent to entrepreneur.

"Not everyone wants to do a hundred deals and that’s okay." -Jan Pitman

Takeaways + Tactics
- 7 inbound calls would convert much better and much higher than 30 outbound calls.

- People get into business for freedom and flexibility, to be their own boss, and for unlimited income.

- One of the best ways to develop talent, and get the most out of people is by being an example.

At the start of the show, we talked about how Jan got started and why it’s important to collect data, and how to go about calling expireds and FSBOs. Jan also shared what her days look like, how she keeps her database engaged and how she was able to find the most valuable skill she can leverage. We also discussed the importance of ramping up your outbound lead generation, and towards the end of the show we talked about making sure the freedom of business doesn’t affect your productivity.

We also spoke about:
-Developing multiple income streams
-Why it’s okay not to want to do 100 deals
-Why ritual is all about consistency
-Why you have to focus on some kind of process

People get into business because they want freedom and flexibility, to be their own bosses, and to get unlimited income. Ironically, those are the same things that actually ruin their businesses. After you get your license, freedom is earned by the activities you actually engage in. For that to happen, you have to focus on some kind of process. Do an activity that generates income, allows you to leverage yourself and also educates your team at the same time.
