Your New MLM Recruits Were Not Born Leaders
There is a myth among many in the MLM industry that would have us believe that leadership was somehow given away to everyone at birth. Yet not one doctor can ever say that at anytime in the delivery room ever held up a new-born infant and exclaimed, "See, here. We've got ourselves a natural born leader." Your local paper didn't report the birth of a seven pound six ounce leader yesterday. The skills of leadership can only be learned through experience, and the decision to accept the role is always a personal one.
In our own increasingly competitive individual business ventures, successful businesses need leaders, not managers, to handle the heat. Even so, know one can anoint him/herself a leader. Leadership is an honorary stage which can be bestowed only by those who are led. Those who have been assigned to lead others but lack the skills or motivation to do so will forever remain mere managers.
Some of the greatest leaders in business spend much of their time dealing with common everyday details, prospecting on a daily basis, follow-up with new recruits, training etc. What separates these people from the masses of ordinary everyday MLM dropouts is how they deal with ordinary road blocks as well as major challenges.
Keep these 3 principles or points in mind when seeking developing leaders on your team...
1. Identify those who are willing to accept the challenges and responsibilities of leadership.
2. Identify those on your team who are willing to be led and gives respect to YOU their upline. It's not a popularity contest, but a nominated leader must be able to earn their respect.
3. Assess the new leaderís performance in real, non-scientific terms, understanding that people are not machines. Leaders must be merchants of hope as well as a motivator to build their teams.
Many people graduate from school intending to save the world by slaying a fire-breathing dragon. Once they discover how few dragons there are to slay, they must content themselves by campaigning against an occasional lizard. Nevertheless, the great ones fight lizards with tremendous style and vigor.
