7 “Placement” Decision Think about the “fit” of your leadership group.

(Sometimes you will have to have a short term loss for a long term gain.)Role of Placement: Business Builder? Buyer? ASR?
8 Structuring Your Team for Success YOUR FRONT LINE (suggested for everyone)Have 4-5 people on 100 PV LRP your front lineCreates a more sturdy organization in case people move out of your business over time.Extra customers who can help insure a 600 PV per month (IPCs without LRP who buy occasionally, Preferred Customers, Retail Buyers)Note: It is a good idea to pick three people to really focus on helping in your team, whether this is a different three each week, each month, or every few months. This way you can focus on areas you want to build, but you won’t get too overwhelmed by helping too many people.
9 LRP Placement Strategies Seek committed LRP Business Builders for your team at all levelsPlace others below LRP IPCs whenever possibleUsually best to build down 1 level, then acrossResult?Fast Start Bonuses are distributed to all 4 levels over timePower of 3 Bonus is also earned by key LRP peopleRemember, the Enroller can move the person’s placement one time within their first 30 days of signing up.

12 Getting Off to a Great Start IMPORTANT COMMUNICATION STEPSLet people know up front that anywhere you place them in the business is a great place to be.Always talk highly of your leaders below and above you!To help team members feel more secure and save where they are placed, communicate the strengths of the leader you are placing them under.This person will give them even more support than you alone can offer.Remind them you will be helping them and everyone else in your team.INTRODUCTIONS ARE CRITICALIntroduce new sign ups to the leader they are placed under so they will feel more comfortable and make an immediate connection.In personThroughOver the phoneNote: Sometimes new sign ups fret about being placed under people they don’t know and think they should be on your front line. If this is the case – talk them through your placement choice as a great choice, so they don’t get worried.
13 Teach Others to Do What You Do: Training and Support Lead by exampleOthers will mimic your actions & wordsTeach your team members to be leaders.Remember: you can’t do everything alone!Give them the tools and teach them how to duplicate what you have done.Make time to organize.Make time to help & train others: group presentations, 1-on-1 calls, & notesUse available tools and resourcesBe committed and encourage your team to:Attend dōTERRA events and webinarsCheck the web site, blog and other available toolsParticipate in parties and host presentationsYour financial success depends on these important activities!Commission plan reward success the deeper you help build your organization
14 Help Your IPCs Build A Team Schedule an initial 1-on-1 meeting to answer questionsReview or provide a list of all current, relevant documents they may needDiscuss & schedule their hosting an event – plan to attend as presenter, and participate!!Communicate about events, new ideas, EO experiencesSchedule team gatherings to share ideas, practice presenting or whatever seems most appropriate at the timeBe in touch regularly with information, encouragement & ideasIn personPhone callssREMEMBER – Helping them, helps YOU!
15 Pay Attention to Team Morale Your attitude effects your whole team!Focus on helping others on your team---you are in turn, helping yourself! ALWAYS focus on your team and how you can help them ---it should never be about ME.A good rule of thumb…when you are feeling down call up, when you are feeling up call down.Always say positive things about other companies (regardless of what you actually think). Bashing other companies decreases the integrity of our company and doesn’t create an overall positive feeling. Is someone is with another company – accept that they are with a good company, and just explain why YOU chose dōTERRA.Never talk badly about one of your leaders or share your frustrations about them to members of their team, even if they aren’t doing anything.
16 Marty’s Business Tips: Before you move people, talk it through with your UplineKeep track of your team – made your VO a daily eventKeep track of your earningsWatch LRP datesAlways plan another event…nowWhen you are tired, confused or frustrated…call uplineShare your suggestions to improve the companyAlways mirror the behavior you want to receive back!
