January 6, 2016
Changing careers is a big transition, and the idea of doing it alone can be stressful. Luckily for those making the switch to Farm Bureau Financial Services, you won’t feel isolated in your new career. When you make a commitment to become a Farm Bureau agent, we make a commitment to help develop and support you throughout your career. Our Agency Managers will be at your side every step of the way. Below, discover how and why Farm Bureau’s Agency Managers can help maximize your insurance career.
Communication and Engagement
One of the most important aspects of an Agency Manager is communication. They keep the lines of communication open to make sure agents are aware of what’s happening within the company and to stay current on industry trends. Additionally, they can provide an insider perspective to help you navigate, since they know first-hand the challenges of the industry as well as the rewards. As you launch your career as a Farm Bureau agent, Agency Managers can help you reach and exceed your goals by providing critical feedback and personalized ideas when you need it.
Farm Bureau is dedicated to developing and supporting its agents. Our Agency Managers work hard to keep agents invested in their careers with encouragement, tips, advice, and the tools to help put them in a position to win. Agency Managers 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, tackle obstacles, and transform you into the leader you’ve always imagined.
Business growth is a major factor of an insurance agent’s success. The helpful feedback and advice an Agency Manger provides is tailored to each individual’s needs and can increase efficiency. They’ll be there to help open doors for you, be it inside the organization or within the community.
Agency Managers can look and think outside the box and provide 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 that everyone accomplishes their goals.
One of the most gratifying aspects of being an Agency 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 the opportunity shouldn’t be taken for granted.
No matter where you are in your insurance career, Agency Managers play a vital role in helping agents succeed.
