As I do my training, the most requested topic is always recruiting. But that is not the most important skill set you need for success in Network Marketing.
The most important thing is people skills.
Your biggest issues won’t be product related, your comp plan, or the marketing materials. It won’t even be product recalls, back orders or negative publicity.
It will be ego clashes, marriage problems, communication misunderstandings, and out of check egos. It will be discord between relationships between you and your team, or between your leaders and their teams.
So make sure you make working on these skills a big part of your self-development program. Books like Dale Carnegie, The Five Love Languages, keeping your ego in check, and being willing to apologize will do more to grow your group than just about anything else.
People come into our business with all sorts of baggage. Most have never been in business for themselves. Many have never had leadership positions. So there’s a lot to learn for both you and them.
Make a point to get better at this and it will really make a difference for you.
