Leaders are important to your network marketing team!
Dale Calvert likes to say that network marketing is a personal development program with a compensation plan attached.
If I had to guess, I’d say that 97% to 99% of network marketers don’t have the skills or the mindset to become a success, in this business. Some people can learn these things and work their way up to the top levels of their company’s compensation plan. While most people can’t or more likely, won’t learn them. Maybe “won’t” is a bit harsh. Maybe they just don’t know what skills to learn and who to learn them from.
One of the most important skills anyone can learn is how to be a leader. Yes, I said learn! There are some people who might be a natural leaders and there may be some who are brought up to think, act and be a leader. Again, most people aren’t leaders, natural or otherwise. However, I do believe that most people can learn how to be a leader.
I’m not here to teach you how to be a leader. There are much better people to learn this skill from than me.
I will venture to define what a leader is. To me, a leader is someone who knows how to get to a destination and is willing to teach you, guide you and show you how to get there. They are able to do this because they have already been to the destination.
You have to decide if the destination that the leader knows how to get to is really the place you want to go. If someone knows how to get to Michigan, but you want to go to Utah, then they aren’t going to be the leader you are looking for.
The title of this article is a bit misleading. Pardon the pun! It asks why you need to find leaders for your business. It would be great if you could find those natural leaders, but the odds of that happening is slim to none and Slim just left town! More than likely what happens is that you find someone who is wanting to be a leader, teachable and you help them learn the skill of leadership.
You will have to help develop the leaders on your team!
The second thing the title says is, why do you need leaders on your team. You’re going to need leaders on your team because there will be a time when you won’t be able to work with everyone on your team. Or at least that’s the goal. When this happens, you’ll have a problem that needs to be solved. It’s a good problem, but it is still a problem. This is where the leaders on your team can step in and help you help those on your team that are needing the help.
When the time comes, you will need some leaders to rely on. It’s your job to help find them or develop them.
You won’t be able take care of everyone on your team, once you have a large organization.
Hopefully, you will run into this problem!
