1. Make your team warm: athletes do it, why shouldn't they? Do a quick role play with a team member or have them call their own voicemail and practice their sales pitch.

2. 30-second rule: When training your employees, you should never speak for more than 30 seconds at a time. More than that and you're not listening enough.

3. Employees should NEVER just read a book or article. Have employees summarize the important facts they learned and ask them to email you about how they will incorporate what they learned into their daily routine. Check back a month later and see if they stuck, if they complimented them, if they didn't, get them back on track.

4. Turn off distractions. Our minds are overloaded every day. Turn off your computer screen and cell phone during the training session, this will ensure that you really hear everything you need.

5. Take a daily training check. Every day at noon she should have done at least one thing to improve her staff, from a simple good job, Sue, to a full training session. If you haven't completed this task by noon, be sure to incorporate it into your day. Texting, emails, and voicemails can count, so no more excuses.

6. Get more out of them: ask "How's that?", "Can you tell me a little more about that" or "Can you give me an example?" visit: https://liebl-consulting.com/

7. LISTEN! A great Stephen Covey quote: Most people don't listen with the intention of understanding. Most people listen with the intention of responding. "Make sure it's not you.

8. Get your employees to help each other. In a group training session, ask them to throw difficult objections or dismissal comments to each other. Award the team member who presents the best rebuttals.
