Creating a High-Performance Team with Debbie Camacho Franco and Elizabeth Navarrete

Welcome everyone! Today marks the premiere of The Business and Life Mastery Show with your hosts Debbie Camacho Franco, and me, Elizabeth Navarrete, from Houston REI Network. In our debut episode, we dive into the secrets of Creating a High-Performance Team and feature an incredible guest, Fernando Young. Let’s jump right in!

Understanding Your Team’s “Why”

Every successful team starts with a strong foundation: understanding what drives each member. Ask your team what their personal and professional goals are. Offering personalized incentives can boost motivation. For example, one of our team members was thrilled when rewarded with a high-end purse. It’s those little, thoughtful gestures that make a difference.

  • Personalized Incentives: A nice purse, a new car, or even a special dinner.
  • Show You Care: Send flowers when they’re going through tough times; small acts of kindness go a long way.

Active Listening and Meeting Customer Needs

In sales, listening is just as important as talking. Fernando emphasizes how asking the right questions can uncover what customers truly need. Instead of pushing products, focus on understanding their preferences.

Key Questions to Ask:

  • Are you thinking new or pre-owned?
  • Do you prefer four-wheel drive or two-wheel drive?
  • Leather or cloth seats?
  • Short bed or long bed?

These detailed questions can help you become the “whisperer” who knows exactly what the customer needs before they do.

Building Your Personal Brand

Your brand is your identity, and it needs to be vibrant and engaging. Post relevant and fun content instead of just pushing sales pitches. Whether it’s a picture of a new product or a funny story from the workplace, make your business fun to follow.

Tips for Building Your Personal Brand:

  • Share Real Content: Post cool products, client stories, and behind-the-scenes fun.
  • Engage and Interact: Take photos with happy customers and share their stories.
  • Be Authentic: Share successes and struggles honestly.

Choosing Business Partners Wisely

Your business partners are an extension of your brand. Align with companies that share your values and avoid those with shady reputations. Fernando mentions partnering with reputable companies like Anderson Glass, known for their work on “Fixer-Upper,” to ensure quality and trust.

Being Productive vs. Being Busy

It’s easy to mistake busyness for productivity. Tracking metrics can help ensure you’re making real progress. Fernando suggests focusing on revenue-generating activities rather than just shuffling paperwork.

Tips for True Productivity:

  • Track Metrics: Identify which activities lead to actual sales.
  • Prioritize Wisely: Focus on tasks that generate revenue.
  • Avoid Busy Work: Don’t get caught up in non-essential tasks.

The Importance of Mentors

Mentors play a crucial role in personal and professional growth. It’s vital to have mentors for different aspects of your life—financial advice, personal growth, or business coaching.

How to Choose the Right Mentor:

  • Identify Your Needs: Know what you want to achieve and find a mentor who has excelled in that area.
  • Ego Check: Don’t let pride prevent you from accepting guidance.
  • Be Open to Change: As your goals evolve, your mentors might need to change too.

Effective Team Management

Leading a team requires more than just managing tasks; it involves creating the right energy and environment. Daily huddles and one-on-one meetings with your team are crucial for maintaining focus and motivation.

Tips for Effective Team Management:

  • Lead by Example: Control the energy in your workspace.
  • Regular Check-ins: Daily huddles keep everyone on the same page.
  • One-on-Ones: Discuss both work deliverables and personal growth with team members.

Recruiting and Interviewing

When hiring, look for red flags and listen carefully for any signs of a victim mentality. Avoid hiring someone out of desperation.

Interview Tips:

  • Look for Attitude: Are they solution-oriented or do they blame others for past failures?
  • Genuine Interest: Ensure they’re genuinely interested in the role and the company.
  • Give Chances: Sometimes, potential isn’t apparent in the first interview.

Creating the Right Environment

A lively and energetic workplace fosters productivity and creativity. Use music, foster camaraderie, and encourage teamwork.

Creating a Positive Workspace:

  • Play Music: It helps create an energetic and welcoming environment.
  • Foster Team Spirit: Encourage collaboration and support.
  • Celebrate Wins: Acknowledge and celebrate team successes.

Unconventional Marketing Strategies

Leverage social media in authentic and engaging ways. Make your customers the heroes, and always aim to build rapport.

Tips for Effective Marketing:

  • Be Authentic: Share genuine stories and experiences.
  • Make It Fun: Adding humor and personality can make your content stand out.
  • Engage with Followers: Respond to comments and messages to build a loyal community.

The Mindset of a Successful Entrepreneur

To succeed, embrace the mindset of a king or queen. Believe in your potential and set yourself up for daily wins.

Tips for a Winning Mindset:

  • Confidence: Believe you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.
  • Daily Wins: Start your day with small accomplishments.
  • Think Big: Never settle for mediocrity; aim for greatness in all you do.

With these insights and strategies, you can build a high-performance team that not only reaches but exceeds your business goals. Fernando Young’s journey from a successful car salesman to the Man of Steel shows that with the right mindset, motivation, and methods, anyone can achieve remarkable success.

Final Insights

In conclusion, creating a high-performance team is a multifaceted endeavor that requires understanding your team members’ motivations, actively listening to customers, building a strong personal brand, and choosing business partners wisely. Productivity should be prioritized over busyness, and the guidance of mentors can provide invaluable support. 

Effective team management, thoughtful recruitment, and fostering a positive work environment are essential for maintaining focus and motivation. Unconventional marketing strategies and a success-oriented mindset further enhance your team’s potential. By implementing these strategies, as shared by Debbie Camacho Franco, Elizabeth Navarrete, and Fernando Young, you can propel your team towards achieving remarkable business success.
