Building your online MLM business on the fact-track does require a lot of guts and dedication. And Leadership is the key distinction between the mediocre and super successful marketers. Thanks to the Entrepreneur mag, here’s some quick tips.
The 12 Leadership Traits of the 21st Century….Revealed!
1. Listen. Tune in to what your prospects and MLM team members are saying, and you’ll find great ideas for how to move forward in your business.
2. Give credit. Team members love leaders who acknowledge their ideas.
3. Be yourself. In our age of sound bites and phony smiles, tell your story honestly. It’s rare and refreshing, and makes workers feel like they know you — and want to help you succeed.
4. Communicate. So much team dysfunction can be prevented with clear communication. Otherwise, your MLM team members are in the dark. And soon, they won’t care.
5. Don’t be trendy. Avoid the “strategy du jour” problem. Choose a course and stick to it.
6. Beat anxiety. Stop worrying and turn your negative emotions — regret, fear, sadness — into teachers that help shape your character.
7. Be service-oriented. Leaders can be sort of self-involved, forgetting that they are in a position of leadership. To serve your MLM team, prospects and your primary company stay focused on all areas.
8. Be accountable. Define the results you want, and acknowledge when a screw-up is your fault.
9. Use empathy. Look from the eyes of your team members and prospects. Make sure your communication and leadership style is a fit for today’s MLM game.
10. Share the big picture. If your MLM team members don’t know their overall goals, it can be hard for them to solve problems. That leaves you having to micromanage every problem instead of being able to delegate and offer guidance.
11. Keep your cool. The days when being a screamer worked are long gone. If teams are worried about whether you’re in a good mood today or not, little gets done.
12. Think like an immigrant. When you arrive on new shores, you often see the business world with fresh eyes. Use your unique perspective to spot opportunities others are missing.
