This option is for those wanting to go through and/or lead a Bootcamp alongside others desiring to grow their Young Living business. We suggest the following steps to successfully get your team through bootcamp with you as their leader.
First, subscribe to the daily trainings on the Bootcamp Signup page. Then, gather your troops (team members) that you want to lead through bootcamp. Let them know upfront this will be an amazing 6 weeks of personal growth. Tell them of the the time commitment as well, details below.
Next, form a “secret” status Facebook group to discuss each day’s assignment in. Name the group "Operation Silver". The ideal size FB group is 8-20 people to keep it intimate and cozy. If you have more than 20 people, consider co-leading to help foster the community, accountability and relationships being built within the group. If you don't have many participants, team up with another leader to co-lead together by combining groups. This is also great way to foster crossline relationships.
The group leader(s) then post the assignments and moderate discussion within the Facebook group. As all the members do the assignments and discuss them, they'll grow together. Assignments take 40-55 minutes each. We suggest posting 1 assignment per day for 5 weekdays and taking weekends off. 100% participation should be required. They should know this upfront. This IS bootcamp, after all.
Each weekday, copy and paste the day's assignment and graphic sent to your email and post it into the FB group. It's helpful to title each post with "Monday, Week 1, etc). It is also helpful to set a reminder on your phone M-F to remind you to post. Please be on time with your postings each day for your team so they can depend on the assignment being there. Ask participants to message you if you somehow forget to post that day. It's helpful to set a reminder on your cell phone each night to post the night before. Cinchshare.com and TinyTorch.com are a paid service (business expense) that allows you to schedule posts to a group. Hootsuite.com, is a free service that allows pre-posts so you don't have to remember every day at the same time.
Read your participant's comments and interact with them. Comment on their comments. Answer questions and be an encourager. During the first 2 weeks, this will MODEL community to your group. It creates a cozy and intimate atmosphere to learn, share & grow in. The relationships that form over these 6 weeks will be like none other.
If you experience technical difficulties, try a different browser. On rare occasion, things work on a computer and not on a phone/tablet browser. Calls use data so connect to wifi if necessary. If you can't open an audio, click the little arrow then "download" or "share" at the top of the popup screen when trying to open an audio.
Require 100% participation in Bootcamp. If someone gets behind, check in and see if there is something going on preventing them from completing assignments that week. If it is a short illness, unforeseen travel, etc, let them know they can catch up that weekend. If someone gets too far behind, dismissing them from the current group with an invitation to participate in the next one gives them a second chance for a later date. Do this in grace and you will see huge rewards!
