10 Tips to Achieving Outstanding Leadership Qualities
If you are going to build a large and successful organisation or team in the home based business industry you will need to acquire many outstanding leadership qualities on the long journey ahead?
The first thing that you would have to do is decide on your personal outcome. In other words what is your end game going to be. So you will need to have a clear sense of purpose. This will be the first area for you to work on as far as leadership is concerned. Too many people think that it is easy to become a leader. But you will have to understand leadership takes time, hard work and a thorough understanding of those qualities that you hope to attain.
I firmly believe that you must have fun on this fantastic journey and you must love what you do, otherwise the results will become diluted and your level of success in attaining leadership will be minimal. So what outstanding leadership qualities will you have to learn, work on and duplicate throughout your team of leaders:-
TIP1 The first tip is to be totally committed to a particular level of achievement and success. This will be determined by your already decided outcome. Portray this to your group at various times and develop the attitude of expecting nothing less than success and also accepting nothing less than success.
TIP2 The second tip is very simple and that is to show your ever growing team that you can do whatever is required. Some people call this, 'Leading By Example' You cannot expect other team members to do those things that you are not willing to do for yourself and doing on a regular basis. So the standard you set is vital and you have to be the glowing beacon to your team.
TIP3 The third tip is to learn the art of communication and there are many ways of achieving this particular ongoing group of skills. Utilise all existing forms of communication and become comfortable with them, such as, the telephone, webinars, one to one meetings and conferencing etc. Communication is where it is at and without this skill you will be dead in the water. Contained in this subject of communication is the most important aspect which is creating mastermind groups. This is a subject that requires research and discussion on it's own.
TIP4 The fourth tip is conveying to your team members the level of support, time and attention they can expect from you on an ongoing basis. You have to take care of people, but you are not going to babysit them in anyway. Early on you may need to assist and guide them in the right direction.
TIP5 The fifth tip is to show your group that if you make a commitment then you should stick to it. There is nothing worse than letting people down. You know, saying you are going to do one thing or make some commitment and then either doing something completely different or not fulfilling that commitment.
TIP6 The sixth tip is showing persistence and being consistent when dealing with any goal, challenge or solution. The main area here is planning massive all out action and teaching your team to do the same. Become totally action oriented with tremendous energy.
TIP7 The seventh tip relates to working on having a very pleasing personality. All the top leaders make reference to this side of leadership. So be real nice and smile. Have time for everyone and work at helping people feel comfortable. Relax around people and help other people feel relaxed around you.
TIP8 The eight tip is to develop the art of self control because no-one is going to want to be around a person who is unpredictable, as in losing their temper. Learn to be totally chilled out and develop what I call a surfer's mentality. Surfers are pretty cool people who you just love to be around.
TIP9 The ninth tip is to develop some backbone and courage. In this day and age you find supposed leaders in all fields who do not stand up for what is right they don't assume full responsibility and are not totally accountable for what they do. If you are wrong then say so immediately and improve the situation as quickly as possible.
TIP10 The tenth and final tip is becoming the master of detail in everything you do. This is referred to as becoming a thorough professional in everything you do, because it looks the part and enhances your reputation as an exceptional leader.
Now these are my views on what outstanding leadership qualities you need to be successful in MLM or network marketing.Don't forget to be honest and remember integrity is everything. Without integrity you are not a leader.
