In business and in life, leadership is the stronghold of any organization. A famous football coach once threatened his team, saying in a huff, “if you guys keep losing, you all will be traded.” One of the players responded, “actually coach if we keep losing, you will be traded.”
Feedback: Business Leadership Tips
We got a lot of great feedback on the previous post with business leadership tips. Today, we are going to go a bit deeper. “The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.” Jim Rohn

The more I share the more I get back. I’ve learned through the years some leadership skills that I will share with you. These business leadership tips and techniques work in any organization, large or small. When you apply these leadership strategies to a network marketing business you can create exponential income. In some businesses, sometimes leaders keep some of their best information to themselves, as to not create competition. In Network Marketing, you get paid to lead, and, you get paid A LOT to develop other leaders. Network Marketers are always looking for business leadership tips.

Business Leadership Tips (Part 2)
As a leader, you want to be in the game. Be doing what you want the others doing. Be learning what you want the others learning. As you get into team building, the folks you work with want to know that your knowledge is new and fresh and relevant… and credible. If you are always learning, you will always be improving. But don’t get stuck there. A lot of leaders learn, learn, learn and then… they think knowledge is power. Incorrect. Knowledge is power when put into action. That’s why you want to implement. Implement what you learn. Lead by example. And then teach. Don’t hoard all the knowledge. Spread the word. This is the key ingredient. Especially in developing other leaders.
Even though it may seem difficult in the beginning, you need to start acting like a leader regardless of where you may currently be. I don’t like the expression “fake it till you make it”. It sounds inauthentic to me. I much prefer “faith it till you make it”. Have faith. Put in the work. Never make the mistake of thinking being rude, arrogant, or pushy means you are acting like a leader. Rather, learn how to take initiative and responsibility. Try to take part in meetings rather than sitting back and observing. Use any opportunity as a chance to prospect those around you and establish yourself as an authority figure in your chosen industry.
This is one of my favorite business leadership tips of all time. Most people get stuck in the havingness of things… what they have and what they don’t have. Some people evolve to the doingness of things. They do what it takes. They are in action. They do the do. The truly great leaders, the ones who really are involved in growth, the ones who you want to follow … they go from Have to Do to BE….. Being a leader, what does that mean. It means speaking and learning and reading about leadership. Step into bigger shoes my friends. Continue to speak about what you want to bring about. The more you do that, the more people will want to follow you, the better leader you will become.
