Leadership in network marketing
If you missed the last 3 categories for becoming a network marketing pro:
- Network Marketing – https://www.mattmorris.com/network-marketing-books-to-read/
- Communication Skills – https://www.mattmorris.com/communication-skills-network-marketing/
- Belief/Mindset –
This final category for you to become an expert in network marketing should come as no surprise.
No truer statement could ever be said with, “Everything rises and falls based on leadership.”
Government organizations, military units, sports teams, corporations, and yes, YOUR downline rise to success or plummet to failure based on leadership.
There are so many aspects of leadership as it relates to network marketing I could write an entire book about it. (In fact, later this year I will.)
One of the biggest reasons I struggled for 5 years was because I refused to step up as a powerful leader.
When I did, it changed the game for me. In a future blog post, I’ll tell you a story about when I finally decided to man up.
My top book recommendations for cultivating leadership in network marketing
#1.) Launching a Leadership Revolution by Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward
This is not a network marketing leadership book specifically but the authors, Chris and Orrin, were diamonds in Amway and have built huge organizations. The principles outlined here are perfect for network marketing. I have to say this is my favorite leadership book for our profession.
#2.) 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell
My mentor recommended this book when I first started working with him. Because I was coachable, I devoured it along with every other recommendation he had. (There’s a big lesson there) The laws outlined in this book are solid gold. I took pages and pages of notes and have been able to use them as a teaching reference for many many years.
#3.) Developing the Leader Within You by John Maxwell
As you can tell, John Maxwell is one of my favorite authors. His background is in building churches which is all about leading your members to refer to other members so it’s a very similar type of leadership to network marketing.
#4.) Primal Leadership by Daniel Goleman
One of the most effective traits of powerful leaders is emotional intelligence and the ability to transfer emotion and energy to others.
Goleman is the premiere author for emotional intelligence and this book is the best I’ve seen relating it to leadership. I have to admit, after the first 1/3 of the book, it gets pretty analytical and is a tough read. If you have a super analytical personality, you will LOVE it…
…and if you just can’t get through the last half of the book, the first half itself is worth the read! 🙂
I have to admit, it was REALLY hard to choose just 4… If you’d like some additional recommendations, hop over to https://www.mattmorris.com/top-10-leadership-books-time/ and you’ll see some of the best selling leadership books of all time.
