The Posture of Leadership

business training Apr 01, 2021

Acknowledging your value as a leader is crucial in inspiring those who look up to you, your peer and your downline’s prospects.

As a Brand Partner, you begin as a leader to customers; a master in massive production and educating customers. When your business grows, there is a shift in what responsibilities you must take on while helping others lead their businesses. Take a look at your team, and ask yourself: “Who are leaders? Do they have leaders under them?”  

Know your stance within your team, and acknowledge that you are now leading new Brand Partners run their own businesses. In order for those leaders to have success, they have to know how to lead their own team. This is where you become a leader of leaders.


Avoid Comparing and Despairing

Rule No.1 in leadership: do NOT compare yourself to anyone. When offered advice or feedback from an upline, crossline, or downline, be grateful; receiving advice is not a critique on what you lack, but rather suggestions to help you gain. Downlines who offer knowledge is a sign that your leaders are rising. Watching your leaders grow is the ultimate goal in being a leader of leaders, “the more you help others succeed, the more you succeed."

No one is perfect, and if you ever feel bad about yourself when compared to another, reach out to that person and congratulate them on what an amazing job they are doing. Retrain your brain to come from a place of gratitude rather than jealousy in what you lack.


Set Your Stance

As a leader of leaders, people will come to you to complain about their downline, and it is crucial that your stance is optimistic. Leaders are POSITIVE, and you can help your team succeed by radiating that energy and shutting down negative objections. Leadership is taking a stand even when you do not know the answer. Learn to hold your posture when handling objections to avoid negative energy within your current and future team.


Duplicate the Posture of Belief

Leaders of leaders aim to duplicate their business; in order to achieve this, you must leverage your biggest asset: core beliefs. Core beliefs include trust in your leaders and in the company, as well as limited beliefs, disbelief in yourself and in network marketing. The more areas you are afraid or hesitant on, the more limitations you place on yourself and these habits are likely to duplicate within your team.

Have the same honor and integrity in yourself as you do in the company; having that confidence represented will attract prospects to believe in you and network marketing.

You joined the Purium business because you believed in your upline and the successes they would bring you. You must replicate this with your own team.

Push through your fears and duplicate the posture of belief to inspire your team to follow.

As you step into leadership, this journey is no longer about you. You began this journey with Purium for yourself, and you can continue to grow and conquer your goals as long as you remember that this is now about the people you inspired to join you.


Continue Developing Your Personal & Professional Skills

No matter where you are in your career, there is always room for improvement. These four elements are not just crucial to getting the job done and doing it well, they are imperative to being successful in business, product creation, serving others, and leadership. 


Self-reflection Questions:

  • Is my communication clear, direct and approachable?  
  • Do I process my thoughts before taking action?
  • Do I consider how my actions will impact others involved?
  • Am I aware of my priorities and the priorities of others?
  • Do I have professional respect for others around me? If yes, how can I show that? If not, how can I find respect to create a healthy, professional relationship?


Self-reflection Questions:

  • Does my workspace bring me joy?
  • Is it easy to find the resources I need to easily support my team?
  • Am I missing any important information, resources, or tools that can help us? 
  • Am I able to easily teach duplication to others?
  • What are some ways that organization can help me stay focused on my goals?


Self-reflection Questions:

  • Am I a reliable, calm and positive problem-solver?
  • When presented with an issue, do I diffuse negativity with strong optimism (even when I don't have the solution immediately)?
  • When an issue grows into a larger problem that is out of my control, is there an opportunity to "own" a piece of it to move closer to a solution (and get out of the proverbial "weeds")? 
  • When it feels like my team has experienced a large loss and/or "failure," how can I reassure them that this is a part of a journey? Is this a teaching opportunity for a personal/professional development lesson?

Leveraging time

Self-reflection Questions:

  • Do I spend a lot of time trying to solve a problem that isn’t mine?
  • Do I ask people questions before trying to find the answers myself? 
  • Do I find it easy to work on certain tasks during certain times of day or the week?
  • How can I utilize my time and talents more efficiently?
