Managing systems to achieve your goals.

Isn't managing a system the same as goal setting?

Many people have asked me "what does it mean when someone says they are managing a system. Isn't that the same as setting goals?"

The simple answer is No, it is not the same as setting goals.

A system is the repetition of a systematic series of steps and deadlines to achieve goals.

Managing systems removes all the emotional baggage when dealing with people.

To be a truly successful insurance agency manager or a successful personal insurance producer, or for that matter, successful in any endeavor that you may take on, you must first have a business plan , then you need to develop and manage systems to accomplish your intended plan of action. Success does not happen by accident.

Managing a system will help you achieve the desired positive results (goals) you want to achieve, and can help you identify the negative results that can continue to create future problems.

In addition to developing successful sales results and techniques, managing systems, and not people is the most important part of recruiting and training new insurance agents.
