Last week I was preparing a training for my team on the 21 characteristics of leadership.
This is a good practice for us as network marketers who are looking for leaders to join our business.
What qualities make for a good leader?
These are qualities you want to look for when you’re recruiting.
I did some research for my training and found a great web site at the University of Oregon’s Holden Leadership Center. See the full list of leadership characteristics here.
Here are a few from the list:
- Good Communicator
- Open Minded
You can click the link above to read in more detail what the University of Oregon says about each of these 21 characteristics of leadership.
These lists weren’t originally created for network marketing but we can use these as a guideline in our business.
Where can we meet people who exhibit this leadership qualities? What types of groups or organizations have friendly, outgoing, positive, upbeat, intelligent, inspirational, leaders?
If you can figure that out, you’ll find more quality prospects than you can handle.
Here’s a tip… Look for people who are involved in personal development and improving their skills. That might be a good place to start. Don’t you think?
