THE WORD BUSY
I am going to help your agency move from busy to productive and find more time in your day to reduce stress and improve your client’s experience. Course is newly revised!
GETTING RID OF THE WORD BUSY
Moving from busy to productive.
You see your team running around all day and they seem stressed and overwhelmed. Every day for years, you have been hearing how busy people are – but the phone records and activities can tell a bit of a different story. You aren’t sure what to do – you don’t want your team feeling this way. What almost no agency understands is how to move their team from busy to productive and find minutes that add up to hours in their day. It’s not just focusing on finding more people, it’s making the people you have more productive. This can happen when your agency has a plan to manage time and training to help the team approach time management.
THERE’S JUST ONE PROBLEM
No one has given your team a clear plan with scripts, time blocking and how to focus.
MORE SPECIFICALLY, MAYBE THESE FEARS, UNCERTAINTIES AND DOUBTS HAVE GOT YOU PARALYZED:
- There is no time
- Training is costly
- No consistency
- Little buy-in
- There is no plan
- Small bursts haven’t worked
YOU HAVE A PLAN
I’M KELLY DONAHUE-PIRO
I worked a summer job as a bank teller to pay for college. I realized that my co-workers weren’t taking advantage of incentive $$ by cross selling products. I started spending time learning how to sell since my bank had no training program for front line employees. Insurance was one of those products.
In 2000 I was still working at the bank. The executives loved me, and my co-workers hated me. I proved they could cross sell but weren’t. I toned down my sales skills to be accepted and missed key career opportunities as I was graduating. I got my first job out of college and realized again that many small businesses had no sales and marketing strategy. I had to figure it out on my own.
The mortgage crash found me unemployed. I was recruited back into insurance by a tech company that was also making the switch. We were pioneers in digital marketing for agents. We found that agencies were not equipped to convert a web lead effectively. I led the client management group that coached the agents in transforming. I worked with over 700 agencies in 6 years.
In 2014 the company I was working for was getting sold to Zywave, but I’d found my calling helping install systems into agencies to help them become ridiculously amazing. We have worked with over 1,000 agencies in the US and Canada.I

That’s Why I Created

THE WORD BUSY
Are you tired of hearing how busy everyone is but no one has a plan (except to hire more people)? Do you ask how you can help and the team just stares at you? Your agency needs a different approach that engages the team and gives them a clear plan with expectations. This helps the agency embrace a time management strategy that simplifies everything and empowers everyone to succeed. This changes everything!
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Team Leader: Keys To Success
We help the agency get set up for success by helping you get organized to maximize this course.
This includes AMS360, Hawksoft & Applied Epic Tips.
Time Management Approach
We break down all the beliefs and false beliefs insurance team members have on time. In this section we set the stage for the key time management philosophies we will work on with your team.
You were taught how to use your management system and even a rater but no one has ever really taught us how to maximize email. In this lesson we review how to manage your inbox.
Management System Activities
Your management system needs to be your air traffic controller and you can only do this when everyone is using the system uniformly and accurately. We review how to use the task system to run your day.
Notepads & Stickies
If you are relying on your notepad as your to-do list, what is the agency management system for? There is no transparency to the rest of your team on your notepad. We review better ways to manage your tasks.
A messy desk can lead to messy work. Due to the sensitive nature of the information we have for clients we need to practice a clean and organized desk so everyone can help you clients.
If you new you had a block of time to focus on the most difficult tasks of the day would that reduce your stress level? Once agencies embrace time blocking and get it working they never go back.
Quoting is one of the most labor intensive things you have to do in an insurance agency. We review our strategies on how to streamline quoting.
First Call Resolution
Completing a client’s needs all in one phone call is not only efficient but effective for your and the client when we limit trailing work you get more time back.
Setting expectations is a critical part of communication. We should have due dates for internal work and client work so we meet all expectations.
Effective Follow Up
We can sometimes babysit clients and follow up too much or two little. Instead we need an efficient follow up strategy that honors your time and gets what you need.
Work Like A Team
The best agencies work like a team! This means you can help each other and keep a balanced workload.

It never seems like a good time to do anything. Everyone is busy, and you are always stretched too thin. The story is that we are all waiting for the perfect time to install the strategies we need to have the time to best deliver for our customers. You may be thinking “if I do one more thing there will be mutiny” or you may have tried things before and there was no buy-in, so what’s different now? I’ve been through this same story with hundreds of agencies, and the reality is there is a cost to doing nothing. The other harsh reality is that it will only get worse unless a plan is put in place to run the agency rather than have it running you. I’ve learned the best time to do anything is right now. You can always put off the work and hope it will get better, but we all know hope is not a strategy.
The Agency Performance Pack also includes AppX Retention, AppX Sales and our Quarterly Course Additions!
