For many years, and in many previous episodes, I have discussed how spending just 15 minutes a day working ON my BNI membership changed the results I was seeing.  Simply by scheduling dedicated time helped me become more effective.  The problem is it isn't really that simple to do.  So I offered to our Director Consultant team the opportunity for a couple of people to go through a coaching program with me if they were interested in installing this 15 minute a day program into their memebership and business.  Two people immediately jumped in, and one of our Managing Directors asked if I would be willing to take a third person who was not on our team.

Thankfully I said yes, and in this episode we introduce you to Jamie Stein, a member in New Hampshire and one of our Director Consultants

In this week's episode we answer the first topic submitted through our website www.bnipowerofone.com!  The question was:

Essentially, when I look across the members of my BNI chapter I see the closest thing to a 'sales force' that I have at this point in my business.

They are my sales team just as I am a member of their sales teams.

Have there been any podcast trainings lately emphasizing best practices as they relate to 'training' other BNI members to be your sales force?  Do you use collateral materials?  What about emphasizing value proposition over

benefits?  Key qualifying questions?  etc.    I would think I cant really

consider them 'trained' to represent me until some action steps have transpired.  Can a best practice checklist be developed?

I know this is pretty much the core of BNI but at the same time, the idea that we should be treating our BNI chapter mates as a 'sales force' can get lost in the noise and could be a good topic to reinforce on a pod cast.

One of the questions that has come up in our discussions is whether it is our job to show/prove to our chapter that we are excellent at what we do. Or is it assumed that everyone in the group is great at what they do, and that we all know it? I know it might sound elementary, but I have spent a fair amount of time in my presentations talking about the quality of my services, with the assumption that others need to be convinced. Perhaps this is a good new podcast topic?
