After a day full of training, I have to say, I’m very excited about the direction my corporate partner is going! The training is part of a new program called Passion Parties University, and today’s was New Consultant Training. Granted, I’m not a new consultant. I’ve been with the company for awhile, but this was the first NCT to take place here in Kansas City. The program itself launched in March, and I was fortunate enough to have been asked to be a part of the initial test run at our corporate convention. I attended today for several reasons, but mainly to see what had changed since that pilot, and also to go through the exact training that new consultants who join my team will have the opportunity to experience when they start their businesses. As the training tours the country, there will be another NCT session take place here in KC at the end of July, and the goal is for it to build up to the point where there is an NCT session happening at least every three months within 100 miles of every consultant, so that they will all have access to this fabulous training within the first 90 days of their businesses. The second step to Passion Parties University begins this fall – Emerging Leadership Training. This will be for new leaders, and I cannot wait to attend this one! Then will come Advanced Leadership Training, for which I am also thrilled!
Today really started last night, because a few other Executive Directors and I got a room in the hotel where the training was being held, in order to be there early enough this morning to help with registration. One of the things I love about corporate events, and this business in general, is the fantastic friendships I’ve developed with the amazing women and men I’ve met through Passion Parties. Hanging out and having girl time as a legitimate part of my job is incredible!
The people with this company, by way of both the consultants and the corporate office are ridiculously inspiring. Not only are some of the most powerful, driven, intelligent, supportive, loyal women I’ve had the pleasure of knowing proud to call themselves Passion Consultants, but we have an amazing team of people at corporate who stand behind us, and offer us outstanding support, training, incentives, rewards, recognition, and treat us like family when we call into the office for nearly any reason. The training today was just one example of that.
NCT is chock full of information to help new consultants with the basics of getting started in their businesses, delivered in a way as to engage, promote participation, and inspire self assurance and action. I’m quite proud of Passion Parties for creating the training system and offering it all across the country. The investment in people is apparent, and their desire for us to be successful arouses passion within us to propel our businesses.
Once the training ended, I had the wonderful opportunity to hang out and have dinner with some fellow Executive Directors, two Million Dollar Club members, and our Director of Sales and Field Development. Having the chance to socialize and swap stories and tips is one of the things I value most in the behind-the-scenes part of this business. I will absolutely never turn down an opportunity to spend informal time with someone from whom I can learn, especially when they’re awesome people!
I consider myself very fortunate to be a part of a company that changes lives, and amongst such positivity. Enhancing relationships, educating women about their bodies, providing an opportunity for financial freedom, business ownership, and incredible camaraderie, through which successes are more than celebrated! The decision to accept that opportunity and start my Passion business has been one of the best decisions of my entire life, and I am so grateful for that opportunity, and to be able to share it with others!
