To succeed in the network marketing profession, it's important to have good LEADERSHIP SKILLS. It doesn't mean we have to be born with them, but it does mean that it's important to develop them
throughout our career.
I'd like to share with you FOUR LEADERSHIP SKILLS that I found in an article written by MaryJean Howe. (You can read the entire article at this link)
1. Leaders are Confident: Network marketing leaders are full of self-belief and confidence. They also have complete confidence
in their organization and people they work for. Every action they perform is full of confidence and their charm is infectious. They make people around them feel confident and help them in enhancing their self-esteem. This is the reason that people like doing
business with confident network marketing leaders. On the other hand, people who look nervous and defensive find it extremely hard to even survive in the tough world of network marketing.
2. Leaders Motivate: Every business has its difficulties, but leaders do not get discouraged easily. Those who have network marketing leadership qualities know how to motivate people. They are positive people who continuously
motivate their members in achieving their goals. They know that their own disappointment will demotivate people who are working with or under them. They know that their own success is dependent upon the performance of those who work under them and never miss
an opportunity to encourage their team members. Those who are unable to motivate others will not be able to extract the best performance from others.
3. Leaders Share:
Network marketing leaders believe in the concept of teamwork and sharing. They are great team players and recognize the importance of success as a team. They never aim for individual success and know that the only way to get ahead in the long run is by sticking
together as a team. They celebrate the success of any one member as a team's success. They never miss an opportunity to help anyone who is lagging behind in the team. They share their own experience and winning strategies with their people and are open to
their feedback which can enhance their business performance.
4. Leaders Train: One important network marketing leadership quality is that good leaders
appreciate the importance of training. Not only do they never stop learning and training themselves, they ensure that all training concepts that they have learned are learned by all other members in their network. They do not shy away from spending the time
required to impart training to their members. They make sure that every member of the team is well-versed with the latest concepts in the network marketing business.
