Reach Your Peak – The Four Archetypes for Teams

We have asked this question thousands of times to brokers and agentsIf you hire 10 people to your company – how many are going to make it in the real estate business? The answer is NEVER more than 2! Many managers, team leaders, and trainers believe they can ”fix” people.  They are confident that because their company has the best tools, training, and support and that they care and are a great manager, they can get most of these new agents to be successful in the business. Here’s the reality – you can’t fix people.  They are who they are!  Each person comes with their own degree of self-confidence, personality traits, behaviors and success characteristics.

The Four Archetypes & Where they Fit on Teams

  1. The Entrepreneur (Team Leader)
  2. The Manager (Team/Office Manager)
  3. The Individual Contributor (Admins/Team Associates)
  4. The Hobbyist / Part-Timer You may find suitable admin assistants and occasionally a solid team associate from this group if their commitment and priorities have changed.

Wandering Zen – A South Dakota Road Trip

A South Dakota Road Trip Matt Emerson Wandering But Not Lost

To this Wanderer, there is nothing better than an epic family road trip.  When traveling in America, there seems to be a list of sights that appear on most itineraries at some point.  The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Blue Ridge Mountains, Washington DC and Mount Rushmore, to name a few.  Today we are going to pack the car and head out to Keystone, South Dakota to check Mount Rushmore off that list.  Countless times we tried to work South Dakota into an existing trip but, frankly, it’s just not on the way to anything!  So, one year we made it a destination and it was the sleeper hit of the summer.  Make sure that you allot more than a day or two for this stop though because the area is rich with majestic beauty, adventure, and awesome family fun.
