Understanding Franchisees

A roadmap to understanding every franchisee and individualising your approach for better relationships and more successful and profitable outcomes.

Each franchisee is a unique mix of personality, business skills and experience. They are all very different. Therefore, how you support, coach and engage each franchisee cannot be standardised.

When supporting franchisees, quickly determine where a franchisee will struggle and where they will be most successful; their best and worst activities and roles; and where they will need the most support is invaluable knowledge.

Keeping franchisees satisfied, performing and profitable, at the level they’re at, is extremely important, because unhappy and underperforming franchisees can damage your brand, drain support people, and even erode the value of their own franchise business.

This course will teach you to identify the 8 types of franchisees and the 9 levels on the Franchise Spectrum, which when applied will dissolve conflict and accelerate trust in relationships; provide a framework for coaching / mentoring franchisees; and enable your team to individualise how they engage with each franchisee, for faster action to profit.

This learn at your own pace course is delivered online. You will earn 250 education credits if enrolled in the Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) program, when you complete the course.
