Too often new prospects are left to figure things out on their own when a leader shirks their servant responsibility. What better way to cultivate an electric sense of action and belonging, in a team, than to teach them how to be a GREAT servant?
That would solve a lot of the challenges we face in the MLM workspace. It takes a simple understanding that people want to be loved, they want to be needed and they want to be part of something. They also need to LEARN what to do if they don’t know. Therefore a great leader is an excellent teacher…
