Jessica was searching for a reliable, repeatable onboarding process that maximized efficiency, reflected her high-touch offering, instantly motivated and excited her students, and provided an exceptional client experience.
Today, I’d like to offer some suggestions on how you can perfect your own onboarding process for maximum efficiency and client delight, and how to best involve your team with implementation.
While every business should be concerned with customer happiness, leading a mastermind comes with client-delight challenges unique to this kind of high-touch offering.
There’s a trap many of us fall into when we expand our team. It’s the management trap. It happens when we expand our team quickly – bringing on multiple new team members at once or in a short period of time – before we have systems in place to help us grow efficiently. Suddenly, we find ourselves managing and training a new team, creating and documenting systems as we go, and struggling to find a way to pay everyone when there’s no time left for generating new business.
Leading a virtual team presents a unique set of challenges. As a leader, it’s up to you to create a collaborative, supportive atmosphere among people who are separated by distance, time zone, and culture. Your remote workers need to feel they are part of something bigger than themselves, and they need to form strong relationships with each other in order to create the best advantage for your business. Being a true team leader includes empowering each person on your virtual team to feel connected, inspired, and important.
