Being a Network Marketing Leader – What Does it Really Take?

To gain the respect of those whom you lead, it is absolutely necessary to realize that you do not have to use a loud boisterous voice to portray yourself in a position of authority.

The former Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, observed that being a person of power was like being a “lady”. She said it this way, “If you have to tell others you are, you aren’t.”

It does not matter how loudly orders are barked, truly great leaders increase respect by the way they present and conduct themselves. Respect is gained by respecting others.

The best rule of thumb to follow in gaining others respect is to follow the Golden Rule. You will win their unquenchable commitment every time.

As a network marketing leader to have any authority you have to prove yourself creditable.  I have heard many say that they have asked for their upline’s support, but have never received it when asked. You have to make sure that you show you care about your downline and genuinely care about their success. You have to prove to them that you will always look out for them. The Go-giver philosophy…take care of others first before seeing to your own needs. Make certain that your troop’s needs are taken care of first before attending to your own.

In our big hurry and scramble to get to the top of the pay plan this lesson is often forgotten. It will certainly hinder your progress if you neglect to take care of your own downline.

There is a lot of work to be done to clean up the blemishes and bad image that network marketing has acquired over the years.  It is unfortunate, however those of us who really believe in this industry and know the potential of this industry have a responsibility to ensure that the leaders present themselves worthy of the respect of their downline. Shame on the leaders who are not making themselves available to their team. When your team does not have your support, they fail, become frustrated and give up.  Believing that network marketing is just a scam and will never work, not for them or anyone else.

I invite your help to make the network marketing/MLM industry a more respected, truthful and trustworthy profession.

The road to an awesome improved professional industry is through increased knowledge of what is good and what still needs to be avoided and improved in our industry.
