Leaders Solve Problems

Send to Kindle

BREAKING NEWS: There are going to be challenges when you build your business. People will make mistakes. Your team leaders will experiment with many approaches. Some will work great. Others not so great. The company will have missteps along the way. That’s because there are no “perfect” companies.  Only companies that are perfect for you.

So let’s lose the notion that everything will work out perfect, flawless and harmonious.  You’re going to face issues.

The fascinating thing is how many people believe the way to demonstrate their leadership capabilities is to create laundry lists of everything that is wrong with the team system, company, or profession.

Anybody can point out problems.  If you want to lead and inspire a large team, you need to provide solutions.

Don’t send your sponsor a frantic text telling them there are four typos in the new product catalog.  Send them a PDF with the errors highlighted and the correct copy written in, so they can immediately send it to someone who can fix it.

Don’t call your sponsor to say you think the team website sucks.  Send a thoughtful email with suggestions for how to make it better.

Don’t bitch because the company doesn’t have buses running between the host hotel and the convention.  Gather some of your people, book a UBER XL and get it done.

Victims can tell you what the problems are.  Victors can tell you what the solutions are.

You can be a victim or you can be a victor, but you can’t be both.  Choose wisely.

  2. Спасибо, очень важная и полезная часть книги! Мой инсайт: нет идеальных компаний, есть идеальная для меня! Классно!

  3. Victims can tell you what the problems are. Victors can tell you what the solutions are.

    That’s my quote of the day!

  4. Javed says:

    Randy, I like you because your message is always basic, bold and blunt. Victim vs victor. “If you are are not the part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.”

    Looking forward to your book. When will it come? Any idea?

  5. Thanks for sharing this Randy. Solving problems instead of complaining is the definition of leadership, especially in MLM.

    Hi Randy,

    I just read this blog of yours now on the last day of the year!

    How true! Leaders focus on providing solution with the situation and resources that we have. For a very long time in the early days, we had no real leaders to guide us through the many traps of this MLM journey.

    My original sponsor found a solution – I changed sponsor to a business-savvy MLM leader who has a SYSTEM in place. It is something you focus a lot on too!

    You are absolutely right – “You can be a victim or you can be a victor, but you can’t be both.” I am glad that I have chosen my path wisely.

    With Sincere Appreciation for your contribution to this awesome MLM profession, Randy!

  9. Jenny Slate says:

    Instead of focusing on the cause of a problem, choose wisely the possible solutions
    For a problem.

    Always good results for problem and solutions.

    Thank you for the nice article.
