Are you a Leader?

Jan 17th 2011 at 7:51 PM

Do you claim to be a Leader in your business or field of expertise?  Many people claim to be Leaders, but are really Slackers instead.

A Slacker is someone that likes to give instruction or direction, but takes no action on advancing themselves or their business.

Does this describe you, your up-line or someone else on yourTeam?  Here are some clues that could help.

Leader:  Praises his/her team and offers encouragement
Slacker:  Quick to find fault and slow to give praise

Leader:  Holds himself/herself to a higher standard that his/her team
Slacker:  Has a high level of expectation for his/her team but doesn’t hold himself/herself to                that same standard

Leader:  Leads by example and is a role model for his/her team
Slacker:  Blends in with crowd and never steps up to take a leadership role

Leader:  Has deep rooted belief in his/her business and leads new teammates
through the growth process (learning the business and facing obstacles)
Slacker:  Convinces a person to join his/her team then pawns them off on someone 
else or simply pushes them to the side (Referred to as “sign and drop”)

Which of these characteristics, best describes you and your teammates?  Be honest with yourself.

Just remember, that a leader must lead and nourish others through the growth process.  If he/she loses integrity and fails to take action, then this same failure mindset will ripple down to his/her teammates.  A team will duplicate their leader and their leader’s actions.

Are you a Leader or a Slacker?
