Here are three ways to build this vital skill of leadership when developing a profitable network marketing business.
- Ask Your Upline For Help
Your upline has already demonstrated their ability to lead by getting you to join the team. Go out of your way to spend time with them when they are working on their business and copy exactly what they do. Take copious notes and make sure you implement at the first possible moment. There is no point learning everything if you do not then do it. You will also find that your upline spends more time with people who actually implement what they learn rather than just learn all the time.
- Attend Team Meetings
Most companies do team meetings and business persentations. Learn from the leaaders at the front of the room. How do they hold tha attention of the new and old recruits. What are theur mannerisms? Consider the effect it is having on you as you watch them and copy what they do in your next team meeting. Plan to have team meeting with your team as it grows. Build a team identity and start now to be the leader that people want to work with.
- Read Leadership Books
Beyond copying and watching others demonstrate their leadership. Immerse yourself in learning how to be a leader. Your business depends on you stepping up as a leader so do what it takes to get better and better at leadership no matter how long it takes. Find time in your schedule to read books or attend courses on leadership.
- Join Mastermind groups
You do not always see clearly where you are lacking in skill. Being part of a group of people who are calling out the best side of you and refusing to listen to the excuses will enable you to become the leader you want to be.
