Smart Leaders Give Freedom

By |2015-01-25T20:22:23-06:00October 11th, 2010|Educate, Featured Articles, Networking Star|

You should find the right people who can be motivated by excellence and are excited to make your business better. These people don’t work just for more money, but they work first for the satisfaction of accomplishment and the ability to be creative. Although this may seem obvious, few businesses make the right personnel decisions. Many so called leaders say they want self-motivated people who will work for the betterment of the business, but in reality, many business people have too fragile of egos to have a team member have a contrasting opinion. They are really looking for obedience to their word, not creativity and independence.

Insist on Personal Growth

Personal independence and self-reliance is a sustaining need for your business to grow. If you rob your team members of their ability to figure out their own problems, how will they ever become leaders themselves? How can they ever have the strength to grow if you want to take a vacation once in a while? Worst of all, how will you ever have time to spend time with the people who are willing to be more self-reliant?

A team that understands people and knows how to bond with prospects will always outperform the team that memorizes their presentation. Building a smart and nimble team can take time, but if you want a business that can withstand hard times and flourish in good times, you must be bullheaded with your determination to train and mentor people to think and listen instead of just memorizing facts.

Do You want Followers or Leaders?

Leaders in direct sales organizations have been teaching their “factory” workers for years to say the same things, memorize little sayings and get together once a month for a shot of enthusiasm to keep them from quitting too early before they can sell them some more tools or product. Many entrepreneurs and members of direct sales organizations mock traditional education. Let me tell you, direct sales has a failing grade in real education too. It is time to start teaching our people to solve real problems and lead, not just memorize if we want to thrive in the new economy.

Don’t Fear Money

Money is a measuring stick (a tool) and most people subconsciously know that. That is why it scares the heck out of them. People feel that money proves they are worth little and accomplish almost nothing. Why do you think people run from the topic of money and are secretive, embarrassed and conflicted about the subject of money?

Rule 3 - Test your people who say they are committed. Many marketers cringe at this rule. "I want everyone to be comfortable," they think. "I don't want to blow anyone out." Well fine, have an underachieving group that never gets big if you don’t have the guts to ask more from your people.

What to Expect From Your Downline

One who is committed to a cause will not simply “go through the motions” in becoming a leader. A committed distributor will not be satisfied with just making a visit to one of his downline so he can report to his mentor that his job is “completed” or “done.” A committed distributor would not be content to merely “give” a presentation but would want to teach with passion. The result, if your leaders have the guts to ask for it, will be making a real difference in the impressionable lives of the new distributors entrusted to his or her care. It will create real leadership.

Network Marketers Should Be Courageous

Understand the new leverage in today's network marketing. Live your story, yes live your story. Give me happiness, not ingredient lists. Give me joy, not promises of riches I don't really believe in. Give me a way to feel younger, with people that build me into greatness not scare me into submission. Give me life, don't take it away from me. Don't tell me you care about how much money I make and then threaten me if I think the opportunity is better else where. Give your people a reason to stay other than the lottery ticket chance of $10,000 a month. LIVE your story.
