Beacon Best Practice Session: Organic Farming

USA - Matt Foxhall, Equitable

Recruiting: In 2016, Matthew Foxhall’s world changed dramatically. He sold his financial planning practice, moved his family to Jacksonville, Florida and doubled-down on his dream of building and leading an organization. As he surveyed the landscape, he faced the reality that his branch could never thrive with the status quo and traditional practices. Instead, he made the decision to find inspiration in the principles of organic farming to restore and revitalize the branch. Matthew Foxhall shares his journey for planned renewal and sustainability – and makes the compelling case on how to attract the next generation of Financial Advisors.

Teaming: Deep dive session on building an effective team, starting the culture of teaming by focusing on the 5 elements of teaming. The formula for teaming is T=E x (A+M). We will deconstruct the 5 elements and focus on two key areas during this session, attracting the talent by establishing a teaming culture and value proposition and tackling the first hurdle of team building which is the compensation piece. We will focus on metathesiophobia, the fear of change and coaching your team to begin teaming to reach more clients and expand productivity.

Session Description: 

A blue ocean strategy in using technology, innovation and scientific research in managing your team, save time, help your agents achieve top results and recruit talented millennials.

Brain science (neuroscience) explains why people hate thinking about risk, why they think “this is not going to happen to me” and they don’t take action to mitigate risk with insurance.

– What are the 6 brain defense mechanisms in the human brain about risk.

– How you can teach your agents to bypass them, raise the closing ratio and eliminate the fear of rejection.

 

How you can use technology in a simple way to be an advanced & sophisticated manager in order to :

– Impress and inspire your agents.

– Transform your existing agents into 21st-century insurance consultants through the use of technology.

– Raise their productivity.

– Raise their self-esteem and their level of confidence.

– Help them differentiate themselves from the competition.

 

How you can attract talented millennials by “speaking their language”, impress them with innovation and technology and change their opinion that “we are an old fashion profession”. How to help them survive while taking their first steps in the profession and thrive in the “new” insurance market and economy!
