Team building requires leadership.
Many people TALK leadership, but few actually DO leadership. Leadership and team building go hand in hand. They are a powerful team, and without them, you will have no enduring business.
Many distributors in their success pursuit, think that the team will bill build itself.
It will not. YOU must be methodical in your team building, step by step.
Here are 7 powerful MLM team building tips:
1. Communicate daily with your team with NEW Ideas.
New ideas on how to succeed in network marketing or direct sales is critical. You just FEED their HOPE of Success with “Hope Food” and that comes with new ideas. New ideas of recruiting, prospecting, social media, mobile recruiting, and much more. One New Idea can EXPLODE your team’s Success.
2. LOVE your Team to Success.
My wife, Jodi Andros, who has been in network marketing for 16 years, says this all the time. She says that you must LOVE your team to Success. Let them know you appreciate their efforts, and their time. Let them know with cards, special emails, and also videos sent to them that are personal and encouraging . Love them to Success.
3. Develop the Team Culture with every Communication.
Team identity is critical. You MUST develop the culture, the “feel,” the image of your team. Teams that have a culture not only produce more, but also endure longer as the culture becomes a part of “who they are.”
4. Praise Great Effort, not just Great Results.
Effort is one of the greatest building tools you can use for your team. Yes, Results will always RULE. But GREAT effort is not far behind, as that is what eventually PRODUCES great results. Recognize the great effort, and you are sowing seeds of great results for your home business direct sales team. Recognize great phone calls, appointments set, meetings done, and conference calls and webinars done great.
5. Take Your team to Events and Make a Statement.
Don’t expect your team to go to Regionals, or even National Conferences. TAKE THEM. Set goals and a plan for going, and then go together. Let your team KNOW that you ARE a team, go as a team, and sit as a team. Our Leaders sat with their leaders EVERY event and built that Team Identity every events.
6. Get Your team REALLY Connected to Corporate.
One of the BEST ways to reduce attrition on your team, is to get them connected to your company’s Corporate Team. Have them get to know some folks in customer service and distributor services. Have your Leaders get to know the folks that can HELP them and solve problems. And also, it lets’ Corporate know who YOUR Leaders are as well. This will help your new people be CONNECTED to the Vision of Corporate as well.
7. Build Leaders, don’t just BE One.
Building Leaders is THE single most important action you can take in this profession. Yes, recruiting is critical as well as retailing the product. But if you do not BUILD LEADERS, you will not multiply your team. Duplication will help get your team get started, but Multiplication will get your team GROWING. You do this by building Leaders. Teach them Leadership. Give them Leadership tasks to perform. Believe in them. That is THE Golden Leadership Secret.
