Hi Team....

Today, I am prepping for a webinar I have to do for about 1200 Coaches...

Many of which have not seen their teams in person for over 3 months...

So, they are in no-mans land for the first time in their career...

I have to come out swinging and let them know what they can do to quickly bring their team together so they can start the path to victory...

What I am going to teach them about is a method I came up with....

The M.E.C. Method....

M = MOTIVATION & MINDSET

E = ENGAGE & ENCOURAGE

C= CONNECT & CHALLENGE

For many athletes they are down right now...

They are worried that their performance has slipped....

They are worried some of their opportunities have been taken from them...

They feel disconnected....

They have not been led or managed or given the structure they are so badly desiring and used to...

When you put all that together, you have a struggling athlete....

And, for those of you who leads teams- corporate teams, well, your people are feeling the same way... hate to break it to you...

But, as Leaders, we can quickly change things for our people using the M.E.C.  Method...

How do we do it...

Step 1: Feed Your Team with Weekly Motivation.... 

Step 2: We Must Reinforce Positive Thinking and a Singular Focus around Who We Are, What We Are About, Who We Serve, & The Vision/ Mission of the Team

Step 3: Make The Calls.. As a Leader, you Must Connect With Your Team Weekly.. Same Day, Same Time & The Great Leaders Will Talk To The Individual Members of the Team to Check on Them Individually (Calls, Text, Email)

Got it?

Just using these 3-Steps, you are on your way...

Flood their minds with good stuff...

Exciting Stuff...

Motivational Stuff...

Engage Them to talk about the stuff...

And, when you get all this right, your team knows you are there for them, they feel inspired, are focused on forward and where they/ we are going, and they do not feel isolated or alone...

My friend, Kevin Plank, The Founder of Under Armour had a Rule at UA...

No Loser Talk...

Yup.

You can only talk about things with a positive spin... 

If negative needs to be discussed, it is discussed with a sense of optimism and a refocus on turning that negative to positive so the team and Company can continue along its journey forward...

The world is filled with Loser-Talk today... and you as a the Leader of your team can stop it in its tracks...

You must get dirty...

You must address things with a focus on forward....

They need you...

Now, starting today.. let's make it happen...

M.E.C. Method can help you.... 

And, who knows, that + no loser talk may be what you use to keep your program/ team aligned going forward!

Let's GO!

Your Coach,
