When Honesty Can Kill a Team



Wanting some motivation recently, I plopped down on the sofa to watch a few YouTube documentaries of some the leaders in our company.  The interviewer asked the question that is always on people's lips.

"How did you do it?  How did you rise through the ranks so fast?"


The answer was so honest it shocked me.


"I don't know."


She went on to explain some of the things she did, but she didn't know which actions were important.  This is one thing that can kill a team in no time. Since she honestly doesn't understand her own success, her team will probably fail because she doesn't know how to duplicate her path to success.


Sometimes you need a timeout before continuing the race.


So many times in conversations I have heard people say that they don't know how they achieved their success.  Even if your team is enjoying an explosion of growth, it would be good to slow down and verify that the new people are being trained, not just with your products and company info, but how to network and not be spammy.  

Don't rush to climb the ladder of success because if not trained correctly, the team can crash at anytime. There is a group that helps train network marketers, encourages them, provides a safe place to learn and is completely FREE.  If you are interested, please leave a comment and I will hook you up!

  3. Right on Carla!! Your system has to be able to be duplicated. You have to know what you are doing and how. It also has to be simple!! (So easy a cave man can do it) thanks for sharing your wisdom, I always love learning from you.
