A leader is someone who leads. In network marketing, a leader or upline plays an important role in direct downlines or people under your guidance into their marketing paths. These are some common mistakes a leader should avoid:
What Is Required
You are a leader in network marketing, not a manager. People involved in network marketing generally do not wish to work for others. Network marketing is helping others in achieving goals, not crushing them in a way they did not wish to have.
Reproaching others in public.
Do not express disappointment or disapproval of your downlines in front of all the others. Correct your downline personally and privately. You would not know how he/she would react towards your reproach, if you did it publicly.
Being too gentle and kind.
When training downlines, make sure you point out their mistakes. Do not say things that encourage them in a way that could not help them. Tell them what is right and what can be done to improve themselves in network marketing.
Waiting for others to respond.
A leader generally knows what to do next. When you make a decision, give your downlines suggestions and ideas immediately. Approach
your downlines quickly if you have a change of mind or you have a perfect plan for it. Some downlines will wait to hear from you.
If you have said it, do it. This is a matter of gaining trust from others. A leader keeps and fulfills his/her promises. If you are uncertain of something that you may not be able to fulfill, do not promise. With trust, people respect you and your work.
Complaining about everything will define who you are, and may expose your weaknesses to others who hear. A true leader will not complain, yet take every little step to achieve greater success, as a team with the downlines.
