Do you know the importance of a good coach? Or if you haven’t played sports, you may have experienced the difference a good teacher can make on your grades.
In college my first math professor was not very good, we were often lost in the class and the material in the textbook never seemed to match the lesson taught in the classroom. As a result of this confusion, my grade suffered. The beauty of college was I had the chance to take the exact same course again with a fantastic teacher, who explained math like no other teacher I ever had, I understood the principles and concepts, the lessons taught were reinforced by the textbook, and as you may have guessed, my grades improved as a result.
Coaching helps the members of the team understand the rules of the game, what is expected of them on the field and how to work together. Just like the professor who taught the lessons reinforced by the provided textbook, knowing what is expected makes all the difference. The same is true with Hostess Coaching, a little coaching can go a long way, and it doesn’t have to be complicated, to have a big impact on your results. Providing a few simple, yet key details, can help prevent booking cancellations, increase attendance, and sales.
Coach your Hostess with:
- Guest List – help your Hostess complete at least a list of names
- Invitations – provide your Hostess with postcard, flier or email invites
- Catalog – make it easy for your Hostess to collect outside orders
- Reminder – either you or encourage your Hostess to call and remind guests of event a few day before
- Be available – make sure your Hostess knows how to reach you, and that your available to answer questions or take orders for her before the event
However you provide this information to your Hostess, be consistent, have a system so that you know when you book a party you know what steps you are going to take with your Hostess. Be a coach to yourself first so that you can help your Hostess have the best party they can.
