“Real leadership is leaders recognizing that they serve the people they lead.” - Pete Hoekstra
Leaders lead. Leaders set examples for others to follow. Leaders or uplines in network marketing guide downlines to achieve goals with success- as a team. What are the traits that make a successful leader?
Have A Look at Yourself.
Stay positive. Be positive and generate positive energy in working with downlines. Downlines look up to you, so you are essential in motivating them. Do not carry personal stress and feelings to work. Nobody else knows why and what you are experiencing.
Accomplish missions. Leaders know about their missions. A successful leader will consider and work with tasks to fulfill the goals. A leader who always keeps assignments in mind while working will also show good examples to the downlines who follow them.
A successful leader shows traits of being an expert in either your field or leadership. It could be hard for people to follow your steps, admire, or respect you as a great leader if you have shallow knowledge.
Be wise. Not all teams can work well together. A wise leader will gather or group an effective team with abilities and skills, thus trusting them with their capabilities in their work. As a leader, one must be humble enough to learn from mistakes- no one is perfect.
Effective communication skills. Great ideas and working experience are useless without expressing or conveying the message well. It is essential to stay connected with downlines through e-mails or online messenger. However, it is best to have face-to-face meetings, as this would bring better effectiveness in expressing ideas.
Good people skills. Successful leaders are generally extroverted, meaning they could join and blend in well with downlines.
Approachable, likable leaders make downlines feel comfortable enough to interact with their leaders. When there are troubles, downlines will find it easier to discuss with the leader to resolve problems together.
