3 Characteristics of Network Marketing Top Leaders

Should you be reading this post? Not sure but guess what, this post is for anyone who is looking to become a better leader not only for their team but to be an example to others. Even if you haven't recruited your first person into your company, I wish I would have known these tips years ago just to prepare myself for where I would want to be in the future.

Because I've been in network marketing for over 16 years now I've learned what to do and sometimes you learn what NOT to do and I'm sure you can say the same thing for anything but here's a four things might help you.

3 Characteristics of Network Marketing Top Leaders

1. It Has Nothing To Do With You But Has EVERYTHING To Do With You

Network marketing has alot to do with leadership and the leadership you provide your team is very important. Over the years I've seen leaders send messages to their representatives about not paying their accounts on time, asking them to place an order so the leader can win a company contest or my favorite wanting to be the most popular leader in their company. Now take a look at the examples I've shared, how would you feel if your upline/sponsor only contacted you for the reasons I just mentioned, wouldn't feel too good right? We've seen leaders be the most popular leaders in their company but be the worst leaders to their team because they make it all about them and wonder why their business hasn't grown over the years. Don't be that person not only are you limiting yourself but you push your team away from you!!!

2. Manage vs Leading

Kind of similar to what I previously posted in tip #1 but a little twist. Have you ever heard the saying "Why isn't my team doing anything?" This is a question we get all the time and in MOST cases do you know why they're not? It's not because of them it's because of you!! I know sometimes tough one to take but the speed of the leader determines the speed of the team so if YOU aren't bringing in new business or recruits, what the heck will make you think your team will do it. Leaders can't just sit back and tell their team to do something they aren't willing to do themselves so go out there and be the FIRST. New teammates is the lifeblood of our business and ALWAYS builds EXCITEMENT to an entire team.

3. Create Leaders Not Followers

The ultimate goal of MOST network marketers is to create a business where they can eventually sit back and enjoy their life with their families, RIGHT?? Then in order to do that, you have to create LEADERS on your team!! Your team has to be able to eventually let go of your hand and handle their teams themselves otherwise you would have created a team of children who never grow up to become the leader they were meant to be because they are so dependent of YOU. Network marketing isn't a scheme where we all follow one leader and do as they say, no way this is an opportunity for leaders to grow into their own and be who they were meant to become.

So what's next, take a look at the leaders in your company who have what you want and find out from them what they did to get where they are in your company & duplicate that. Meaning find out what books they read, maybe seminars they've attended because of course you're going to your company events that's what I'm sure every big leader in any company has also done!! 

What's your next step? It's simple!!
Become a student, learn everything you can and teach it to others!
