The True Test of a Leader is Not How Many Followers You Have – It is How Many Leaders You Develop
This is very related to law number four. And in no business is this more vital than Network Marketing. In our biz, it’s all about developing leaders. For maximum duplication you need to have the next generation of leaders coming up the ranks every few months.
So don’t get seduced with numbers like the number of people in a line or the total number of people on your team. These statistics do have value. But they’re not nearly as important as how many leaders are in a line and on your team as a whole. That means giving up the need to always be in control, do all the presentations and conduct all the training events.
It means allowing developing leaders to make mistakes…
And they will make mistakes. And they’ll be doing things sometimes that maybe you could do better. But if you don’t let your people attempt new things and learn and grow through mistakes, you’ll always have to do everything.
If you help your followers develop belief in themselves, a greater number will graduate into leaders. And that’s where the real breakthroughs live!

-Randy Gage

Leadership Lesson:
Your real criteria should be never to do something for a team member that they are capable of doing themselves.
