Business Team Leadership: Pull Them, Dont Push Them


This article is primarily directed toward people who work at home in a business that happens to involve teamwork in a network marketing environment.

I am often contacted by members of my business team with complaints regarding a lack of response or lack of action on the part of their affiliates. Their complaints typically go something like... "I send out lots of emails to all of them and I very rarely get any response and it seems like very few of them are taking any action. What am I doing wrong?"

There are many types of internet-based home businesses where feedback and interaction are quite important and getting anaffiliate or business team member to communicate with you is adefinite objective. It's not at all surprising that this can bea challenge when you stop to think that what you are trying to dois initiate a dialog between two complete strangers who have never even seen each other.

In the case of network marketing, it is of critical importance to build a sense of trust with your team members. Network marketing is very definitely a relationship business and each relationship typically starts out with two complete strangers sitting at their respective keyboards.

The team building aspect of network marketing is of vital importance to the success of each individual member and to the team as a whole. Two key elements of team building are trust andconfidence and these factors play a very large role, particularlyfor new team members.

With all that being said, many people love the IDEA of making goodmoney working at home in their own business and expect it to just "happen", but have no willingness to take any action or put forthany effort to make it happen.

Having been involved with team building and network marketing forsome time, I have come to adopt the following as my operatingcredo..." if you have the desire and are willing to put in the effort, I'll pull you along so you can go faster down the road to success, but if you don't want move on your own, I'm not going to waste my time trying to push you forward."

Its like working with a length of chain... pulling it along worksfine, but trying it push it forward only results in a pile offrustration.

You need to be able to distinguish between people that have a legitimate interest in developing a home based business and those lost souls that feel that they have just joined another chat group and only want to engage in an endless "debate" about the virtues of whatever business you are promoting, but never actually had any intention of establishing a business...you will have to develop your own method of reading people like this (its mainly a sense of feel... sort of a belly button thing).

You can help someone reach for success... but you can't reasonably expect to make them want to be successful. Its just another variation of that very old and tired cliche... that "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink."

Another way of looking at it is if you are trying to move peopleforward, you pull them from in front (a leadership position), butif you have to push them it will be from behind (not a position of leadership).

Kirk Bannerman operates his own successful home based business and also coaches others seeking to start their own home based business. For more information visit his website at Proven Work At Home Business

A Wise List Of What To Look Out For When Starting An Online Home Based Business
Unless you have been under a rock for a few decades or never opened an email account (ever) or never owned a smart phone, you would know that there are millions upon millions upon millions of online home based businesses promoting their business to you and I everyday through social media, email blast, websites, billboards, snail mail, text, bull horns, bonfires, garage sales and much more. For newbies, it can be extremely frustrating, going to a website, not knowing anything about the home based business only to finally sign on the dotted line or click the brightly colored button that says PAY NOW only to find out you have been suckered into a business you can't see yourself doing long term. So you give it your all for about 1-2 weeks and slowly realize this is not what you were expecting at all. Well I have been there, done that, been up and down the block in the arena a few dozen times and I want to shed some light (truth) for you and encourage you that YES, there is light at the end of the tunnel when you know what to look for. Let there be light.
