4 Keys to becoming a leader this year

Have you decided to strive for leadership in your direct sales or party plan business this year?

Maybe you are a leader already and want to help others become leaders.

Excellent. I have 4 essential steps toward leadership for you.

1. Have a clear vision

Ensure you know exactly what recruitment and sales are required to achieve your goal. Put it on paper and keep it where you’ll see it often.

Set a review date for your goals to keep yourself accountable and motivated.

Also, have a clear vision of what it means to achieve that goal. How will your life be different?

2. Get good at the basics

Have you ever heard the saying, “The speed of the leader is the speed of the team“? As a leader, you’ll need to be a role model for your team.

You don’t have to be the top seller or recruiter on your team, but you must show consistency in all aspects of your business!

3. Don’t wait until you have the title

Leadership is very much about who you are and what you do. You don’t need to have the title to behave like a leader. The sooner you act like a leader, the faster you’ll get there.

Some key leadership tasks you can start immediately:

  • recognize effort and achievements in your team;
  • regularly touch base with your teamies and support them in achieving their own goals;
  • aim to be their number 1 cheerleader, and they’ll be proud to be on your team!

4. Ensure you have a balance

4 Steps Towards Direct Sales Leadership

A great work/life balance is critical. Not just for your own mental and physical well-being, but for your business too!

Start thinking about your life as one big magnet – an attraction marketing magnet. That way, current and new team members can see your awesome life and want that for themselves.

You need to balance work and income and have plenty of time for your family. That’s not just best for you but super attractive to others who want to strive for leadership.
