Pampered Chef: Need help to motivate

    I just made team leader on Nov 1. At the beginning of Sept I only had 1 recruit. By the end of Oct I had 5 recruits of my own and the consultant I had at the beg of Sept has recruited 2. I'm on my way to making Director soon.

    My problem is 2 of my new recruits are not doing much. How can I motivate them to at least be active? Both work full time jobs. I know how hard it is to work all day and then try to do a show at night. I worked in an office for 7 years then suddenly found myself unemployed in July of 08. Now I'm doing Pampered Chef full time.

    I've tried training sessions to try to help motivate but they are the 2 that never come. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I have 5 people on my team. This last month the only one that was active was my newest recruit who was a home office lead and only a consultant a couple of weeks! I continue to encourage them to stay active, attend meetings and offer to help re-charge their businesses. THEY have to want it. I am in a similar situation and wish I had the answers.

    The best advice I can give is continue to work with the active ones and get them recruiting. Good luck to you!

    I do booths on a regular basis and invite my recruits to come work them with me. If someone says that they would like to book a show, I turn around & let the recruit have the booking. It helps them with their new businesses and keeps them motivated because they are not yet running out of shows! :D I figure once they get their snowball of bookings rolling, I can start taking some of the booth bookings too. Right now, I'm still getting my own bookings from other shows, and doing well enough to maintain the HO leads, so I'm not too concerned. ;)
