No single thing in network marketing is more overrated than leadership.
Leadership is overrated
The leader of your group – that would be you – must avoid one thing and do two things well.
You don’t need to be on stage.
You don’t need to create trainings, give motivational speeches nor re-invent yourself every 6 months.
Yeah, I know. You see leaders doing those things all the time. Total waste of time.
Motivation means motive in action.
Speeches to motivate are delivered by either the incredibly slothful or astonishingly arrogant.
Why would I say that?
Simple. The speeches simply do not work. Ever made you a dime? Case closed.
It’s remarkably arrogant to think one could say something that gets someone else to suddenly take consistent action.
Good leadership is just doing 3 things all the time. If we do 3 things all the time… we suddenly are truly great leaders. Not because we did anything special. We just did 2 things right.
When we do the right things right we get results for others and BINGO – they call you a great leader.
First thing – never break this rule!
Test before testimony.
That’s not much, but if you break it? You’ll lose the respect of your group and without their respect, they’ll never take your coaching.
What’s the make-or-break rule?
Second thing – know how to follow
If you cannot follow you cannot lead.
Third, show and tell
Don’t tell them what to do… ‘show and tell’ them.
People who do not make initial calls with new people… showing them what to do and teaching them how to get a ‘yes’ 90% of the time to look HANDS ON is simply feeding new people to the sharks.
If we are going to make some money, we need to talk to people. Spending your time – not telling – but showing people this simple network marketing skill… is money, folks.
This is all we’ve ever had to do to ‘lead’ and we do it 3 levels + deep… which is a really easy networking skill that leads to more people sponsoring (look for 3 deep pattern).
- Obey the #1 Rule – Test before testimony
- Know how to follow
- Work hands-on, 3+ levels deep
The truth? You obey 1 and hammer points 2 and 3 and they’ll call you a great leader within 6-12 months. Why? Your group will grow, their checks will go up, and they’ll copy your simple, effective pattern. And that, quite simply, will help you and your team have more people sponsoring.
