How to Tell if You Are
Heres what you dont need:
None of those last qualities will necessarily hurt you. Its just that thats not what were about. Some of our best seminar leaders have been bar room piano players. Others have doctoral degrees in piano performance.
We never know ahead of time what goes into making a successful seminar provider. But the ability to present piano playing as a fun activity is essential.
Fifth, you need to be a convincing presence. This may be the most important attribute of all. Our business depends on creating happy seminar students (aka customers). Your job is to show them how incredibly enriched their lives can be with the basic piano skills you are teaching them in class. Then you need to motivate them with the promise of future enjoyment by way of our follow up courseware.
Look at it this way. As teachers we all strive to make a difference in the lives of our students. When your students come up to you after class and spend $200 on follow-up courseware, they are in effect giving you the best evaluation you could ever get as a teacher. Its a pat on the back for you. A sign of a job well done.
And its the key to your creating personal wealth.
So take a deep breath, and think about this for a minute. Teachers generally dont like to be labeled as salespeople. That is understandable. But the fact is a teacher is always selling something. Every time you teach something to a student you are selling them on the idea of learning something from you. We are all sales people to one degree or another. Jesus was a salesman. So was Gandhi.
And we will make it easy for you. After our training, you will not come off as a super slick salesman with patent leather shoes and a pinkie ring. In fact, my entire sales presentation during my three and a half hour seminar lasts no more than four minutes. But those four minutes adds up to several hundred dollars of pure profit each day.
Everybody wins. You make more money, you get sincere recognition for a job well done, and your student gets some of the finest course materials ever devised for a very good price,guaranteed.
We can discuss all this at length if you want during the interview phase. Its important.
