The good news we have the mentor to thousands, Tom, Big Al, Schreither to help us turn things around. Let's study carefully what Tom has to say.
Stupid, crazy, dysfunctional advice!
"If you fall out of that tree and break your leg, don't come running to me!"
"If you cut your legs off in that lawn mower, don't come running to me!"
"If you poke your eye out with that stick, don't come looking for me!"
That's the kind of worthless advice many network marketing distributors receive on their journey of discovery. We tell our distributors what to accomplish, but nothow to accomplish it.
We tell new distributors to be positive, but we don't tell them the exact method to quickly reprogram their minds.
We tell new distributors to talk to their skeptical relatives and friends, but we don't tell them exactly which subconscious mind statements to use to approach their prospects.
We tell new distributors to be a leader, but we don't tell them the first ten key principles of practical leadership.
Our problem is that we are so excited about sponsoring the next new distributor that we forget our duty to develop and train our present distributors. It's human nature, but at least we can improve on our present efforts.
I make a conscious decision to invest time, money and energy in every new distributor. Even with that conscious decision, sometimes I forget.
And what's really important about all this? It's not what we teach and train, it is what our new distributors master. I keep a small checklist of basic leadership principles that my new distributors must master. Usually the new distributor only masters two or three principles at best. That just means I must keep investing time and energy until the job is done.
The key is:
It's not a checklist of what you teach . . . it's a checklist of what the new distributor masters.
This change of viewpoint is what makes effective leaders.
