To Lead network marketing team can get really tricky at times in terms of helping and guiding your team members.
How to know if you need a reach out and offer help to some people or let them reach you?
It’s much more of your reaction to the reach out than it is preventing the reach out.
I never prevented anyone from reaching out to me. I never did that. That’s crazy. And so it’s not about having a closed-door policy.
Remember Everyone In Your Team Is Watching:-
The thing that you have to keep in mind is whatever you do, everyone in the organization is watching. When it comes to the team especially.
So whatever you do as the leader, without you saying anything, whatever you do for the team or your teammates, they think they have to do.
Let’s say that a person is having a problem and you say, “You know what? I’m feeling extra generous today. They’re having a problem. So I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to spend five hours with them. I’m going to help them craft their vision, come up with their why. May answer all their questions. Yeah, I’m feeling really, really gracious today. I’m feeling like a fantastic leader, so I’m going to spend five hours because I care about you. That’s the kind of leader I am.”
You may take that as oh wow, what a great leader. But that’s actually the worst thing you could possibly do.
You spend five hours because you’re spoonfeeding. You’re taking good care of them because you care about them. But you have just shown a completely non-duplicatable way for them to ever build their business.
So, if you spend five hours with your team, what do they think they have to do to be a good leader? Am I going to have to spend five hours with every person I ever recruit for me to meet the same level of leadership? So if you want to be duplicatable, when they ask questions, respond with sources, systems, processes rather than your time.
So instead of say, “Hey, you know what? I got it. You’re a little confused. Tell you why. Why don’t you go say _____, and if they say yes to _____ question, point them to _____ video. Go do that with five people, report back in.”
Who could do that? Who could do that on a part-time basis? Everyone. Because you simplified it.
You don’t have to feel bad and give people all of your time. Instead provide resources for them to succeed. So instead of wasting my own time, I’m just going to point them to the system.
