As agents, we focus most of our team meeting time explaining the importance of each of those words. They certainly deserve the spotlight as the foundation for our agency’s financial success, but we can’t ONLY focus on them.
As humans, we also live by emotions. We want to have fun, be happy, feel appreciated, be understood, etc.

Have everyone write down a fun or interesting fact about themselves that they don’t believe anybody else would know. Throw them in a bucket. Then, throw in a few fictitious/outrageous statements (keep them clean and legal) then add those to the bucket as well. Pull out the papers one by one, read them, and have the team write down which person they think belongs to which statement. In the end, each person reads their answers and the laughter (and stories) will begin!
