What’s Your Yuck Factor?
O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him. Psalms 34:8 (AMP)
Is your team growing slower than you’d like? Check your Yuck Factor. That’s what I call the general disposition of your existing team. Have you ever had someone offer you something from their plate or glass and say “Yuck! This is disgusting. Try it!?” You’ve probably just passed and taken their word for it.
On the other hand, if you’ve sat across the table from someone who was really, and I mean really enjoying what was on their plate or in their glass, you didn’t wait for them to offer. You asked. You may have even wished you’d ordered what they ordered.
Before you launch your next big recruitment effort, make sure your Yuck Factor is low and your Yum Factor is high. Is your current team enjoying what they do? Does it show? How are they expressing it? The joyous disposition of your current team is the most effective advertising. So Pump up the joy and get building team leaders!
Success and Progress!
