Don’t enable teach

When you start building your business be it Global Resorts Network or any home business for that matter that requires you to build a team to succeed. its extremely important to train your team members the right way and to lay the down the rules up front. One thing that a lot of people that are new to this industry get confused it helping and enabling or doing stuff for there team mates. In the long run they are not only hurting them self’s they are hurting there team mates as well.

Just a little side note that is a little off topic the business that I build is Global Resorts Network so when you are reading this entry or any of my later entry you will see me refer to Global Resorts Network or a lot. That doesn’t mean that that you have to be in GRN for this to be true to you. Everything I talk about will apply to any one that is working a home based business and is dependant on there team to succeed if they want to succeed.

Ok now that we got that out of the way… lets continue. It is important to note that a lot of your time and energy should be spend working with your team members teaching them, encouraging them and showing them step by step what to do. Because like I mentioned before there success will be proportional to your success. That one of the great things about this industry is that you can leverage your self and have a team of people all working and achieving the same goal together. This is especially true with Global Resorts Network were you will get paid 1,000 on every sale that your team members make and 1,000 commissions on every single level. Why would you want to spend a lot of your time teaching and helping your team mates if that’s the case.

The problem with most trainers and leaders in Global Resorts Network however is that most people don’t know where to draw the line between helping and teaching and enabling and just doing things for there team mates. What you should be doing is pointing your people to places where they can find the information for them self’s instead of just setting it up for them. By learning this way they will be much more likely to retain the information and be in a better information to do the same for there future team mates.

Don’t spend your days setting up capture pages for your team mates, calling all there leads, setting up there auto responder… tell them where the e-books and tutorials are show them how to make a call. Its ok to make calls for them at first but there is a point where you need to cut them lose weather they think they are ready or not. Even better set up a system like my Global Resorts Network Success University were they can study for them self’s.

The best way they are going to learn is by amercing them self’s in to the process. Just like if you wanted to learn Spanish for example you would gain far more by moving to a Spanish speaking country where you are forced to speak Spanish than going to the local community college and learning there or even worse just having someone follow you around and translate for you.

It is ok to provide direction for your team but make sure you draw the line between teaching them and enabling them.
