You are going to have a large group of people who will have various levels of experience in the MLM industry plus you will have people who come from various ethnic backgrounds and a huge variety of age groups and socio-economic and educational backgrounds, and developing great leadership skills will really escalate your business and the businesses of the people you come in contact with.
There is often a misconception about what leadership really is, I have often heard people say things like I am the boss so I am the leader of my staff, or I have reached a certain rank in the MLM industry and so I am a leader, in my opinion this is not leadership, leadership is not something that is given or just taken, it is something that is earned.
So what attributes do you need to posses to be a strong and celebrated MLM leader? The very first thing all great leaders learn to do is to be great followers. If you go back through history you will find that all the great leaders in Industry and all the greatest world leaders were at one time successful followers.
That fact is demonstrated so clearly in the MLM industry all the amazing Leaders I have ever heard speak in our Industry have told stories about their early days in the Industry and how they learned to be great followers first.

There are absolute volumes written on leadership some of the authors I recommend are Jack Canfield, Jack Welch, Stephen Covey, Tony Robbins and Jim Rohn. If reading is not you strong point watch the DVD Gandhi, here is one of the greatest leaders of all time so much can be learned by watching this video, Gandhi was amazing!
One of the soundest ways to develop your leadership skills is find a leader in your company and ask them to either recommend a mentor to you or perhaps they may mentor you themselves.
Leadership is truly leading by example start today to develop your leadership skills and help your team and your company to rise to great heights.
The world and the MLM Industry is waiting for new leaders, so why not step up and become the leader you were born to be!
Yours in Success
