Team-Building Tips for Business Builders
In this post, I will share my 3 top team-building tips that you can implement in your business. In the network marketing industry, we have the opportunity to help people in 2 primary ways;
- customer model – sharing products and services
- team building – assisting others in achieving additional income
Some people choose to focus on one path mentioned above; however, having a hybrid of the two is ideal. Therefore, this post will not focus on the recruiting aspect, but I have some great content on this site that will help you there!
This post is designed to help those who have an existing team and how you can help them (and you) build. And as a result, your business (and theirs) will grow!
Team-Building Tips for the Network Marketer
There is something special about sharing products and services that we love, right? But what is even more powerful is helping others achieve all the incredible benefits that can also come with building a business.
Although driving a solid customer-centric business is terrific, being able to help others do the same is powerful. And, once you have the recruiting side moving along, many see obstacles in helping that team grow. So, my goal is to share these team-building tips with you and for you to understand and implement them for longevity and growth in your business.
Time Management and Team Building
Unfortunately, just because you pour hours into someone on your team will not guarantee their success. And, I’ve been here before.
We can get caught in this web of spending incredible amounts of time on someone who doesn’t implement what we share or suggest. I’m sure there are many reasons this happens, but what is important to remember is to protect your time.
Of course, you want to serve them and see them grow. But, you can’t enjoy it more for them than they want it. So, time management is among my top team-building tips and quickly forgotten and one that can be easily implemented.
Protect your time.
Do what you Expect Others to do!
Lets’ keep this one short and sweet. If you are telling others to go out and do a Facebook Reel or reach out to 5 new people a day — make sure YOU are doing the same. Your example and experience, as a result, will not only help your own business grow but demonstrate to your team that you LEAD by example.
STOP Being the Mother ‘Hen’
The last of my team-building tips for you is this; quit falling into management mode. The downfall of this activity is 2-fold;
- your own business will suffer as a result and,
- you are creating a dependent environment for your team
Anyone building a team aims to help others become independent in their business. However, it can be tough to move away from when network marketers fall into management mode or, being that mother hen.
When you implement the above team building tips,
1) time management and,
2) leading by example,
… you will help yourself avoid falling into that managerial role.
Remember, you are building an independent business for yourself, your family, etc.
Of course, you want to be there and show up for your team and do so, but never lose sight of your own business.
