4 Things to Teach Your Future Leaders

4 Things to Teach Your Future Leaders

One of the biggest mistakes a leader can make is not giving their up and coming leaders enough opportunity to take on leadership responsibilities. Sometimes it’s from a feeling of not wanting to “give something up”. Sometimes it’s from not wanting to take the time to do some training. Whatever the reason, it’s bad for both the current and upcoming leaders. Here are a few ways that leaders can teach and encourage new leaders to lead…..

1.

Meetings – Have new leaders take on small roles at team meetings, and then gradually take on larger roles. In the beginning, it may be participating in a role play. Gradually they can work up to conducting a training session.

2.

Team Calls – As you are making coaching or team calls, start by having your new leaders listen in. When they feel comfortable, have them host the call, and you listen in. Eventually they can take over their own team calls.

3.

Newsletters – If you create team newsletters to recognize your team and their accomplishments, allow your new leaders contribute by writing featured articles. It’s a great way to build their credibility and confidence while having their name recognized and exposed to the team.

4.

Conflict – This is one of the challenging areas when it comes to training. When there is conflict within a team, it is hard for a new team leader to know how to handle it while making both sides happy. Offer to be on a call with all the parties involved. Hear all sides. Then let everyone know they need to think about it and you’ll have another call tomorrow. Call your new leader and ask how THEY would handle the situation based on the call. Run through different scenarios and give your insights based on experience. If comfortable, let him/her handle the conflict resolution call, with you listening in.

Each opportunity that you give your leaders to lead increases their confidence and abilities. Once they are leading their team, it gives you the opportunity to develop a new leader. Never be afraid of handing over the reins to a new leader…it’s good for both of you!

How To Drop Your Business Into A Normal Conversation

How To Drop Your Business Into A Normal Conversation

I find that one of the hardest things networks marketers struggle with most is talking about their business. There’s the perception out there that Network Marketers are the types of people that will ONLY talk to you about their product/service/opportunity. That may be true of some people! But this perception has scared many network marketers out of talking about their business at all. They don’t want to be seen as “that person”.

A great strategy in growing your Network Marketing business is learning how to “slip in” your business during ordinary conversations. The idea is not to be “tricky” about it, but to develop a natural conversation that can lead to you talking to someone more about your business. The idea is to make THEM ask YOU more about it! It makes you feel better when you dangle a little something out there…a teaser…and someone says, “what is your business then?” or “tell me more?”. Having permission feels great!!  Don’t you think ……

So, how do you slip in your business into an ordinary conversation? You look for opportunities to talk to people…usually people you don’t know…to bring up a teaser about your business and have them ask more.

Here are a few examples of what I mean:

You’re at the office supply store getting business supplies and the woman in front of you has something unique. You say, “Where did you find that, that would be awesome for my business!” She will usually tell you and then say “what is your business”. Trust me…I’ve done it MANY times! Make sure you have a brochure or business card handy to give once you tell her!

You’re at the coffee shop and strike up a conversation with someone about the weather and say, “I’m just so glad to get out of the house! I’ve been working at home for 3 days straight and just need a BREAK! I think I’ll drink this out in the sunshine and soak it in before I hit the computer/phones again”. Again…you WILL get asked what you do at home…. Time to share!!  Or if you work offline, have that coffee and say “Ok well, I suppose I better get back on the road again !”  They are bound to ask where you are going and what for !  That is your cue then to answer about what you are doing …..

If you have traveled for your business lately for a convention or training of any kind, make SURE you slip that into a conversation with a clerk or someone in line at the store or even beside you as you are looking at clothes. Something like, “oh, I wish I would have had that on my business trip to The Big Apple!!” It gets a conversation going about where you went, and then WHY.

While not QUITE the same, try this as well. If you are at the park or a playground of a fast food restaurant with your kids, see who’s sitting there looking bored. At the BEGINNING of your visit (because you want to leave time for conversation) just walk over and say, “I know what it’s like just sitting here for a while! I thought I’d give you a catalogue to look at while you’re here! You’re welcome to keep it if you’d like!” It’s a great way to get your products catalogue in the hands of someone…and invite further conversation while you are there with your kids. I’ve seen it do WONDERS!  If you are curious then Click HERE ====>>>>

There, that’s me done my sneaky bit in above !!

Once they ask you a question, it leads to more questions. People are naturally curious. ESPECIALLY about people who a) have their own businesses b) work from home c) travel for their business and d) seem to ENJOY what they do.

If you have a positive attitude about your business, people will be curious and the conversation becomes them asking you more. What a great way for you to tell them more!

So don’t be afraid to be “that” MLM person. Just be friendly and personable. Let the opportunity to talk about your business come in to your conversation (plant the seed!) and when someone asks, be willing to tell them more!  Practice makes perfect and in the end you will wonder why you were always scared to bring up the subject of your business ……
