NATE Announces New BANC Broker

The National Association of Trade Exchanges, a premier organization for trade exchange owners from across North America, announced they have hired Lauren Perkins as their new BANC Broker. In addition to BANC brokering and member support, Lauren will be heading up all marketing and website support efforts.
Lauren is no stranger to the barter industry, as she has 7 years experience, working both in the private trade exchange arena as well as past experience working with NATE. She first joined NATE back in 2010 and served the Board of Directors for nearly 3 years before leaving to work full-time for The Barter Company in her hometown of Kennesaw (GA).
Fast-forward a few more years, and Lauren now finds herself married with a brand new baby looking forward to reuniting with the NATE Board of Directors and membership. "I am elated to [again] be working alongside some of the best in the industry. I look forward to bringing new ideas and growth to the association and can’t wait to jump back in!" In addition to her prior barter industry involvement, Lauren has extensive experience in marketing, public relations and web content/design.
"Lauren brings a wealth of industry knowledge coupled with a sincere desire to help NATE members succeed. We are thrilled to have her join our team and excited to work with her to grow BANC and help our members!" said John Kucera, NATE President and owner of Carolina Trade Exchange.

Using Other's Talents to Accomplish Your Vision

By John Tschohl

Team building is a delicate and time-consuming process. Anyone can put together a group of talented people, but it takes a dedicated team leader to bring everyone together effectively. One of the most important considerations you must make is whether or not an applicant fits into your company's culture. The right person will build upon what you've created, but the wrong person can bring it all down very quickly — and culture can take an awfully long time to rebuild.
Learn to conduct the orchestra.
In the following series of lines from Aaron Sorkin's already famous screenplay, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak holds the following dialogue with Jobs:
You can't write code, you're not an engineer, you're not a designer, and you can't put a hammer to a nail… So how come 10 times in a day I read that Steve Jobs is a genius? What do you do?
I play the orchestra.
Jobs knew he could never have accomplished what he did alone. He needed engineers, marketers and designers. His skill was in bringing those people together and keeping them in harmony.
Similarly, at Amazon, Jeff Bezos' skill is bringing talented people together and focusing them on the vision for Amazon. They work in harmony. Each does their part for the success of the team, for the success of the company. It's called a service strategy. He allows employees to assist in creating new and innovative approaches that have a profound impact on the customer experience — that's conducting the orchestra.
Be a magnet for talent. As managers, team leaders and engaged employees it's not enough to say that we need to get the right people in our company. We must identify who the right people are and create a process that gets them on board and in the position to succeed.
The process works for both large and small companies.
1. Identify who the right people are. Each organization and team will have different needs so your right people may be different than other companies and teams.
2. Identify several people in your organization who you wish you could clone. Write down their characteristics and traits and create your own benchmark of the right person for each position; therefore, setting the expectations for all other team members.
3. Identify the type of person that fits your company and team culture. For example, if you want to create a positive culture make sure you hire positive people. If you want to create a culture that is creative then hire creative people.
4. If you invest your time, resources and energy to get the right people on board you'll have fewer headaches and expenses later on. Take your time during the hiring/recruiting process to make sure you are all on the same path.
5. Remember, the people you surround yourself with will often determine the kind of company you'll have.
6. Continued training is essential. If you expect your team members to develop their skills and stay on top of changes, don't get complacent about establishing and updating your training.
Professional athletes put in thousands of hours to sharpen their skills and prepare their bodies for the rigors of their sport. They are routinely able to overcome the pressure of high stakes moments because they allow their training to take over. When that happens they can play or perform without worrying about timing or their position. They are able to perform without thinking about what they have to do next. They work in harmony.
Through Service Quality Institute, I have trained trainers and employees all over the world and have taught them to believe in themselves and their abilities. I have written several books to spread the word about service strategies and the effect it has on your company, your employees, your customers, and your bottom line.

"When you express your passion and enthusiasm, you will become a magnet to others who will be attracted to your high level of energy. You will become the conductor of the orchestra."
