Key points for facilitators
- Assume your attendees are receiving minimal help from their Connector
- Ideal onboarding occurs when a Connector spends 4-6 weeks helping their new person learn the system, building a relationship with them and helping them meet relevant others in the CC.
- Our experience tells us that (more often than we would like), new members do not receive adequate help from their Connectors.
- Part of your job is to point people in the right direction assuming their Connectors has not done so. If their Connector is doing a brilliant job, you will be able to add great reinforcement!
- When you conduct Workshop-03, your attendees should have completed W-02 (Why).
- Typically after attending W-02, your attendees will be excited about what is possible when they build a network and will be thinking about what to do first.
- In many cases, they will have fallen in love with the CC Culture, the idea of building their own team of team-building advocates and
- They will be starting to think about who they know that may want to build their networks that they can invite to a CC Experience.
- It’s great to encourage your participants to:
- Make a list of people they know
- Learn how to have a Discovery call with them (without pitching the CC)
- Understand that they are building their team of team building advocates rather than introducing people to the CC and hoping that the CC will look after them
- Their job is to find leaders who want to build their teams and to help them do so
- In the process they will build a great relationship with those leaders
- After a Discovery call only invite the right people to a CC-Experience
- Learn how to use our booking system to book guests into a CC-Experience
- Ensure they book a follow-up time with their guests at the same time as they book them in for a CC Experience
- This saves a lot of time chasing their guests up afterwards & ensures a having a discussion while the experience is fresh in their guests mind
- Understand the Questionnaire that their guest will fill in when they attend the CC Experience
- Assuming their guest wants to take a trial, involving their Connector to help them onboard their first few guests
- Emphasise listening to the Podcast for Workshop-03
- Ask your attendees how they are going with listening to the Podcasts
- By now they should have learned (from their Connector or in W-01) how to put the Builders menu on the home screen of their phone
- Ask your attendees to open their Activity workbook (accessible from the Builders menu) and record any questions, notes etc. from this session
- Leave enough time for the Quizzes
- The Quizzes are highly effective as they really help trigger penny-drop moments for key points
- Emphasise the benefits they will receive from doing their homework
- The message is: you never have to recover from a good start – it’s worth prioritising the effort so that you understand everything else that’s coming
- Homework: Re-Listen to the Podcast for this Workshop (W-03)
- Homework: Revisit this workshop mind map (accessible the Workshop grid in the Builders menu) ask your Connector questions if you are unclear on anything
- Homework: Prepare for the next Workshop (W-04 How to find great network-building partners) by listening to the Podcast for W-04
- Be aware of what workshops you are facilitating and when
- Click Here to see when you are scheduled to present Workshop-03 (Who do you know)
- If you can’t attend at this time, find someone to take your place
- Put an entry in your calendar as a reminder when you are facilitating
- The system should send out an email reminding you the week before you are due to facilitate
Detailed Notes for Workshop-03
If you are facilitating this workshop, it’s great to demonstrate to your workshop participants how to access the Workshop grid from the Builders menu and then click Workshop 03.
When you choose Workshop 03 from the Workshop grid, the following will be displayed:
Even though your participants may have already been shown how to access the mind map that explains how to use the mind map in Workshop 1, it may be good to ask them if they would like you to touch on it again!
After you have Zoomed out to the max, you will see the 5 topics that make up this workshop, as shown in the following screenshot:
Now click and drag (anywhere on the canvas) until you have moved to Topic 1 (T1) and then Zoom in by repeatedly pressing CTRL-plus (or Right-Click and move the magnifying glass symbol upwards).
A screen similar to the following will then be displayed:
Workshop 3 is comprised of the following 5 Topics:
Topic 1 – Who do you know that may want to build their network?
Topic 2 – During a conversation discover – are they keen to build their network?
Topic 3 – Book your guests into a CC Intro session
Topic 4 – Follow up after a CC Intro session
Topic 5 – Book your first onboarding session
There is quite a bit to cover so as the facilitator, you will need to whip around the mind map fairly quickly – especially as you want to leave time for the Quiz at the end.
This means you will need to control questions fairly well.
As the facilitator of workshop 3, your job is to show the participants what is available and strongly encourage them to go through it all as part of their “homework”.
There is no way you can cover all the content in-depth. However, be sure to cover everything and emphasise the importance of some aspects that they may otherwise overlook.
However, it is vital to take your participants through the Quiz at the end.
Also, you can’t over-emphasise the importance of the Podcast that comes with this workshop – it’s a really easy way for the participants to work through the content (ask your participants if they have downloaded the Builders Menu to their phone – if not show them how).
