“7 Things Leaders Have in Common ~ Got Them? 100 Rags to Riches Interviewed” by Mark J – Week 25

NO, NOT MY OPINION

Written by Peter Han, a Harvard grad…..and the result of interviewing over 100 ‘Nobodies who became Somebodies…..is the resource, not an opinion.  It is a great piece of work for anyone who wants to know…..what does leadership mean?

Really.

What is very cool is folks who understand leadership attributes seem to be better leaders…..I know that may sound like I am stating the obvious but the truth is too much of the time people rely on ‘ability’ or ‘copy’ other leaders…..thinking it is a good thing…..and, honestly….it may be, but it’s unlikely to be a great thing.

What is this skill? It’s learning how to properly identify and qualify prospects. Most people in network marketing think that prospects are people whose name and number you have. A person is not a prospect unless they have a reason and they want to do something about it. If there is no reason, they are either a suspect or a possibility.
