MLM Leadership

People often ask - what does leadership really mean in a business such as this? what is required to be a leader?

Great question, really. Who defines leadership?

If you think about leadership as having a group to lead, then to what are you leading them, and for what purpose?

Leadership really is an act of service. It requires that you be of and in service to those whom you are leading to be effective. Service is about asking what difference you can make and then following through.

Success comes from developing yourself and then sharing what you've learned in the development of others. In M L M, this is not a difficult task, and unfortunately, it's one that many avoid, for reasons I can not fathom.

Many go in pursuit of sponsoring others, and then when someone signs up, they are fearful of what to do next. Relax, no one is expecting you to know everything. Ask questions and get to the heart of what it is your new partner desires to achieve through the business and do your best to provide tools and direction.

LEAD your team to the tools of success. These don't have to be tools developed by you. Just make sure they are tools that have stood the test of time and have proven effective.

Get your partners involved in the team environment. Bring them together at meetings, on conference calls, email discussions, etc.

Lead authentically, by being the REAL you and not some made up person. Share both your strengths and your weaknesses. Communicate openly and honestly.

Let your leadership evolve and develop around the needs of those you lead, and the desires you have to take on this role. Follow your own values and lead your team along the path you have chosen together, based on mutual values and desires.

What difference can you make today in your leadership?

EXPECT Success!
