Episode 76: Cultivating Community in your Group Program

Today I’m calling out the growing no-sales-calls movement. Connection calls are a vital part of shaping the community aspect of our programs and skipping over them does both you and your members and students a disservice. I’m sharing the benefits of doing these calls and how you can establish and cultivate community within your group program.

76: Cultivating Community in your Group Program

When you're investing your time, money, and energy into a high ticket program, you deserve to have one-on-one time to ask your questions and explore your concerns. Those pre-admission calls are vital to fostering the sense of community we want to create within our programs. That's why I'm confused and, honestly, kind of angry about the growing trend I'm seeing in the online entrepreneurship space advocating against sales calls.

When you’re investing your time, money, and energy into a high ticket program, you deserve to have one-on-one time to ask your questions and explore your concerns.

Those pre-admission calls are vital to fostering the sense of community we want to create within our programs. That’s why I’m confused and, honestly, kind of angry about the growing trend I’m seeing in the online entrepreneurship space advocating against sales calls.

In today’s episode, I’m calling out that growing movement, talking about shifting our mindset around sales calls, why it’s important to connect one-on-one with our members and students through those types of calls and how you can approach them.

TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hello, my friend. Welcome to the Coach with Clarity Podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough, I'm your host, and I am thrilled that you are joining me for today's episode. Now, I have to be a little honest here. This episode, the topic for it, was inspired by something that actually first off confused me, and then made me kind of angry. So I promise I won't go too much into a rant mode in this episode, but I do want to be clear about something I'm seeing in the online entrepreneurial space, and why it concerns me so much, and why I'm choosing not to buy into this new approach or this new way of doing business. And the reason I don't like this particular approach, is because I think it runs counter to what many of us want to create in our businesses, and especially those of us who are running group programs. We value a sense of community, and we understand that our group programs foster a sense of community. And what I'm seeing online right now, in my mind, does the exact opposite. So that's why I want to call it out today, I want to talk about it. And I want to talk about some alternatives to what we're seeing.
