Light Another’s Fire!
How does a flame ignite in a candle?  An outside heat source burns the fuel in the wick, which then creates enough extra energy to ignite more fuel and keep a continuous flame going.  The flame is the visible part of the fire which generally emits light and heat.
Concept:
 So how does this description about “flame” relate to our businesses?  Well, there are many people out there in your communities who have the potential, or the fuel source available.  They just need you to come along and share your flame with them so they can ignite!  Lighting another person’s flame will not diminish your flame.  In fact, when you are together, your light is brighter.  Once the other person’s flame is lit, it will keep going as long as they have the fuel and oxygen to sustain it.

“A mighty flame followeth a tiny spark.”
–Dante Alighieri

Definition of Flame:  “Burning zeal or passion;
elevated and noble enthusiasm; glowing imagination; passionate excitement or anger.”
–BrainyQuote.com

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”
–Albert Schweitzer

 We offer several products that can be used in conjunction with this theme.  You can use the postcards as invitations or to follow up after the meeting.  You can use the magnet as a gift during the meeting to follow up on the concepts.  Use the stickers on anything you mail or give to remind them of your meeting and the impact they have on others. 

You’ll notice there are some stickers that don’t seem to go along with the theme, like “Jump Right In” or the CSA awards.  That is because this training is going to be a little different from what we’ve done before.

Because this theme is to be presented in December, we suggest you actually have an “Appreciation Party” for your team.  This “theme” would then be just a part of it.  We have several suggestions for party ideas and since we don’t know exactly what you’ll want to do, I’ve decided to give you several options in PDF’s you can download.

Business Basics:   
In your meeting to discuss the Key 5C: Preferred Customer Program information.  We have been focusing a lot on how to give great customer service lately.  Why?  Because there are so many merchants competing to sell similar products.  Your customers expect more, want more, and demand more from the company or person they will ultimately buy from.  Leaders and managers, the people on your teams also, have wants, expectations, and demands.  When you provide QUALITY products, services, and benefits to each individual, you will protect your investment in each person you work with.  Remember, it generally costs more to find new customers and team members than to continue serving the present ones!

 Here is a summary of 4 A’s to remember when dealing with your customers, hostesses, potential recruits, and team members.

4 A’s to Service and Satisfaction

1.  Acknowledge= Give each person a friendly, enthusiastic greeting that will establish your positive relationship from the start.
2.  Analyze=  Determine each person’s wants and needs.
3.  Accommodate=  Provide answers, solve problems, answer complaints, and fulfill promises.  Show them how your products, services, and business opportunity will make their lives easier and more rewarding.
4.  Appreciate=  Thank each person for their time, their relationship, their business, and their contributions.  Then, confirm their satisfaction.

 Explain to your team that this month’s meeting is to show your APPRECIATION to them.  Explain that the Preferred Customer Program helps you ACCOMMODATE and SHOW APPRECIATION to your customers.

Conclusion:
It is important to create win/win situations for your team members.  Find what they are looking for as a member of your team and company, whether it be money, recognition, or friendships.  Help them get it and they will help build YOUR business.
 Remember, a leader may need to fan their team member’s flames to give them enough oxygen at times.  Or, you many need to shield them from the winds that threaten to blow them out, but take time to enjoy the unique colors and warmth they give off as they burn.
