Just Because You're The Leader...

Just because you're the leader  doesn't mean you have to do all the work. If you lead your Referral Group perhaps these four rules will help.

Here are my 4 rules for leading:
  1. Delegate - It's not about you and doing everything your way. It's about leading others. That is why... wait for it - they call you the Leader. Delegate or you just might start looking like the lady in the picture above.
  2. Recruit - Good leaders understand that recruitment is part of the job. Always be on the look-out for new blood - folks with fresh ideas and energy.
  3. Empower - Give people the power and title they need to do the job. It will inspire them to be great. Then once you empower them - shut up. Let them do it as best they can. Unless of course you want to do it. (Yah, I didn't think so.)
  4. Appreciate - Nothing rewards a good job well-done more than honest appreciation. If fact, lack of appreciation is the number one reason people quit.
At Gold Star Referral Clubs, our nationwide Business Networking and Referral Marketing organization, we change leaders on August 1st. They serve for 6 months at a time. If you are thinking about stepping up to the position of leader at Gold Star or in any capacity, remember to delegate, recruit help, empower your people and appreciate them.

I hope this inspires you to be a better leader.

Best of Success,
