Why District Managers are Vital to an Agent's Success

November 30, 2020

Starting a business is a major adjustment, and the idea of doing it alone can be stressful. Luckily for those making the switch to Farm Bureau, you won’t feel isolated. When you make a commitment to become one of our agents, we make a commitment to help develop and support you— and our district managers will be at your side every step of the way. Here are the ways district managers help you as you start your business.

They Offer Communication and Engagement

One of the most important aspects of working with a district manager is communication. They keep the lines of communication open to make sure agents are aware of what’s happening within the company, as well as stay on top of current industry trends. Additionally, they provide an insider perspective to help you navigate the challenges of the industry — and the rewards. As you launch your business, district managers help you reach and exceed your goals by providing critical feedback and personalized ideas when you need it.

They Provide Support

Farm Bureau is dedicated to developing and supporting its agents. Our district managers work hard to keep agents invested with encouragement, tips, advice and tools to help put them in a position to win. District managers also conduct joint-work, and are present for every client/member meeting and beyond during the early years to help agents gain the practical experience necessary to master skills and tackle obstacles. It’s their job to help you transform into the leader you’ve always wanted to be.

Business growth is a major factor of an insurance agent’s success. The helpful feedback and advice district mangers provide are tailored to each individual’s needs and can increase efficiency. They are there to help open doors for you — in the office and within the community at large.

They Share Their Vision

District managers look and think outside the box, providing outsider perspective to agents and the team. While individual goals are necessary, our agency managers are responsible for setting the vision that agents strive for to make sure everyone accomplishes their goals.

They Create Opportunity

One of the most gratifying aspects of being a district manager is reminding our agents of the opportunity they’ve been given to help protect the livelihoods and futures of those in their communities. Each agent has the ability to make an impact on someone else’s life, and district managers help to ensure these opportunities are seen through to fruition.
