Agency Growth Platform

Having an accountability partner is a game changer.

Long-term business growth and sustainability for a sales organization takes more than a motivational speaker or a jump-start to your sales system.

Q4i Growth Platform

Focusing on the right areas of the organization that will influence results is critical for growing and sustaining a business. All your business practices, team culture, and sales and service processes must evolve together. And team members must all know how their roles contribute to the sales success of the company.

As sales organizations, insurance agencies must intentionally distribute time, resources, and financial investments among the core areas for building a strong foundation:

Growth Platform Engagement Options

Agency Engagement

This is a one-to-one engagement where Q4i coaches work directly with you and your team, coaching and training around the complete Growth Platform.

Individual Engagement

This is a group engagement where Q4i coaches work with individual producers (or single-shop producers) in a small group environment, coaching and training around the core ideas of the Growth Platform including sales process, personal branding, and pipeline development.

Participants of both engagement levels are considered full members of the Q4iNetwork and have access to all the resources and networking described below.

Working with Q4i: How do we know if we’re a good match for one another?

For a true partnership to work, there must be mutual alignment between your goals and our services, so we spend time getting to know one another before making a commitment.

  1. We start with a conversation to see what that alignment might look like.
  2. After establishing a potential need, we’ll do a thorough assessment of your business, reviewing key operational areas that impact overall performance.
  3. After the assessment, we review the results, prioritize your opportunities, and outline a plan of improvement.
  4. We return to you a Transformation Plan™, which will put you on the path to taking control of your business. It becomes the mutual guide we use for documenting and tracking your priorities and progress.

How does the network factor into the Q4i membership?

When you work with us, there are privileges and responsibilities.

Our agency clients are looking for a plan with structure and accountability. And we’re looking for clients who have a strong drive for change and openly embrace the structure and accountability we bring to you.

All network members are expected to contribute to the betterment of all involved, which means participating in the online and video discussion groups, attending conferences, and openly sharing ideas with other members.

It’s through these ideals and requirements that we maintain the integrity and quality of the network by ensuring that each new member will be a valuable addition to the whole.

Agencies that thrive with Q4i...

  • Have strong leaders willing to make the tough decisions
  • Recognize the need, and have the desire, to change their model
  • Get energy from hard work and the results that come from it
  • Thrive on having an accountability partner to grow and stay on track
  • Actively participate in a professional network
  • Build on the foundation of their current success
  • Strive to differentiate themselves in the marketplace
  • Work to ensure that all areas of agency operations are in alignment
  • Are committed to constant learning and improvement

Bottom line

We work with smart, hardworking agencies who are ready to make a meaningful difference in the lives of their clients and their own employees.

Sales Training & Coaching for Insurance Agencies

Our Peer Accountability & Coaching (PAC) program is designed to bring together a non-competing group of peers, teach you a consultative sales approach at a digestible pace, and teach you how to incorporate the ideas into your processes immediately.

Our 6-month PAC programs run year-round for both individual producers and small agencies.

AGENCY DEVELOPMENT

Working together, we develop your agency Transformation Plan and Agency Scorecard, which we use as the guide for agency development. As with any good plan, it takes the basic elements into consideration: Where are you now?  Where do you want to be? How will you get there?

SALES SYSTEM

More than just a sales process, we teach you how to create and implement a sales and client experience system the whole agency uses to earn and retain clients. Through training and development sessions you learn our MORE System, and then we  keep you going through ongoing coaching and advising.

COACHING & TRAINING

Let’s face it: change is hard. There are a lot of questions and a lot of uncertainty. It’s easy to get off track and lose focus of the end goal. We’re here to help you with that.

In our regular coaching sessions we answer the questions, help to quell the moments of fear that might come up, keep you on the path leading to your vision, and hold you accountable to the actions and behaviors that will be the key to your transformation.

NETWORKING

Believing in the incredible power of peer learning, we bring agencies together to help make each stronger through shared experiences, successes, and even failures.

You will experience the power of the network through in-person and online networking. We facilitate connections among agencies, allowing the exchange and development of ideas, practices, and resources in a supportive and non-competitive environment.

SOLUTIONS

The results you can help clients drive is directly tied to the quality of insurance and non-insurance solutions you provide. A full collection of solutions not only allows you to use the right ones for each client, it is essential for having confidence to be an advisor and make recommendations.

We have a group of partners with whom we work and recommend to our members to help build a solid advisory foundation.
